“I feel like I am a power hitter,” Awiszus said. “I like to hit to the gaps. I look for the fastball early in the count, something I can drive. The, if we get deep in the count I look for a breaking ball I can take to the opposite field.”
His coach is thrilled with the star’s progress, not just as a hitter but also as an outfielder and a leader.
“He is swinging the bat very well and is such a good hitter,” Grams said. “But he has also become a very good outfielder. He made one of the best catches I have ever seen in the preseason. And even though he isn’t a captain, he is one of our best leaders.”
In the fall, Awiszus will be attending Florida Gulf Coast College, where he hopes to be a walk-on for the baseball team. But first, he wants to end his high school season with a bang.
“We want to start by winning the MVC title,” he said. “Then we want to make a run in the tournament. We can all hit the ball, and we can pitch. We believe.”
