Important note about minor league prospect Tyler Austin. He's doing very well in Scranton. I was just checking out the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Tweets and I came across some pretty nice numbers:
Now we interviewed Tyler and his mom a few years ago on Bleeding Yankee Blue. Read EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: TYLER AUSTIN... WONDER BOY. Back then he also gave my own son some pretty valuable advice and he still uses it today.

"BYB: Tyler, what do you tell kids who want to quit Little League after a frustrating at bat, or season?
Tyler Austin: Hang in there. I’ve had frustrating seasons and I’ve played a year ahead. Those years, my numbers went down, everything seemed to. I struggled and I realized that I needed to work alittle harder and I can’t get down on myself. I like to watch the Legend of Bagger Vance. In it, there’s an important lesson: Everybody has their own authentic swing. Once you find yours, there is nothing you can’t accomplish."
He also plays first base...
