Player Profile: James Austin

I have ten cards of James Austin. This one is from 1992 Topps Debut.

Playing career: James Austin had a great rookie season for the Brewers in 1992, going 5-2 with a 1.85 ERA. Unfortunately, injuries the next year ended his career.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Where he is now: Anyone know where James Austin is now?

Google Autocomplete results: He is sixth when you type James Au, between James Aubrey, a British actor, and James Austin Murray, an artist. You do not get any references to the ballplayer on the first page when you google his name; most prominent, the James Austin Company manufactures industrial cleaning products.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Jeff Austin.
