This past week’s Wetherington Chiropractic Clinic Athlete of the Week for May 24, 2014 was Islands high-school senior baseball player Austin Leggett. Austin was voted the Region 3 AAA Baseball Player of the Year. Austin was also a member of the Savannah Morning News All-City Baseball 1st team.
His statistics speak for them self. As a catcher Austin threw out 16 of 21 runners who tried to steal off him. As a hitter, he batted .370 with nine doubles, two homers and 25 RBIs. Then he was asked to pitch, and he went 3-3 on the mound with a 2.85 ERA. As a result, he signed a letter of intent to play at Savannah State. Congratulations Austin.
