SI15: Catching Up With Former SI Yankee Tyler Austin

Congratulations on being named go the Staten Island Yankees 15-year team. Is it surprising to hear the fans remember you fondly that you were voted on the team?
Thank you very much! Yes sir it is very surprising to know that I made such a good impression on the fans!

What do you remember most from your time on the Staten Island Yankees?
Winning the championship in 2011 and bringing the tittle back to Staten Island

How was it to play in New York With the skyline behind you?
It was amazing! Just knowing the history of the Yankees and knowing how many great players also played in that stadium just made a great time

When you were with Staten Island you were primarily a corner infielder, do you feel more comfortable now playing the majority of time in the outfield?
I still feel comfortable at any of the positions I played then!

Anything you would like to say to the Staten Island fans?
Thank you guys so much for this! It truly is an honor to have been chosen for this! Thanks again!
