Player Profile: Pat Austin

I have one card of Pat Austin, from 1990 Score.

Playing career: Pat Austin played six seasons in the Tigers, Orioles, Cardinals and Phillies organizations, stealing 193 bases in that time.

Where he is now: A finance manager at Verizon Telecom in Atlanta.

Interesting stories: Shared his thoughts on baseball cards last year.

My memories: Only knew him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fifth when you type Pat Au, between Pat Audinwood MMA, referring to a fighter, and PAT Authority, referring to the Port Authority of Allegheny County. You don’t get any references to the ballplayer on the first page of googling Pat Austin. Most of the first entries refer to a retired drag racer.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Bruce Aven.
