Austin Hedges

From Gaslamp Ball Wiki - A Wiki for San Diego Padres Fans

Austin Hedges is a Padres catching prospect who was a 2nd round draft pick by the club in 2011. He shares a birthday with Dex.[1] Because of his defensive abilities behind the plate, he almost immediately became one of the franchise's top prospects.[2] By 2013, he was considered by some to be the Padres' best prospect[3] and one of the top 100 prospects in the game.[4][5]

In 2013 he was selected to play in the Futures Game at Citi Field.[6]
