Austin Norman was one of the main offensive leaders in sparking the West Virginia Miners to the 2016 Prospect League baseball title. Norman, who is spending his spring collegiate seasons as an outfielder for his hometown Fairmont State University Falcons, made a big splash in last summer’s 2016 Prospect League campaign, finishing tied for sixth in the league in hitting with a .324 batting average. In addition he set Miners’ single-season franchise records in doubles (19), RBI (45), and extra base hits (28) while tying for the franchise high for triples in a season with six. He complemented his skills with the bat on the basepaths by stealing 20 bases in 28 attempts. His skills were recognized by the league as he was selected to play in the mid-season 2016 Prospect League All-Star Game in Kokomo, IN.
