Player Profile: Tyson Auer

I have one card of Tyson Auer, from 2011 Bowman Chrome Prospects.

Playing career: Outfielder Tyson Auer was an undrafted free agent signed by the Angels in 2008. By the end of 2010 he had rocketed all the way to AAA, regularly hitting over .300 and stealing over 40 bases.

Where he is now: He spent the 2011 season at the Angels AAA Salt Lake team, hitting .280 with 1 HR, 35 RBI and 21 SB in 91 games. Due to injury he has not played yet this year.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Interesting facts: His father Joe Auer, a running back and kick returner, scored the first touchdown in Miami Dolphins history.

Google Autocomplete results: He is ninth when you type Tyson A, between Tyson Airport, an airport in Knoxville, TN, and Tyson Ambrose, a hitting coach at Jack Cust’s baseball academy. There do not appear to be any other prominent Tyson Auers.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Rick Auerbach.
