Nelson leads by example
Being a catcher means being a motivator. At least that's how Hastings High School junior Austin Nelson sees it.
Nelson is the catcher for the Raiders baseball team. His is a position of leadership, he said.
"The catcher is the core of the team, and you really got to take charge out there when you're catching," he said.
Head coach Paul Hartmann also called Nelson a player who leads by example.
