Austin Kearns Celebrity Golf Classic Oct 17th, 2017


After an impressive career at Lafayette High School, Austin was the seventh over all pick for the Cincinnati Reds. Austin was not only one of the greatest hitters ever to play high school baseball in Kentucky, he was also a great pitcher. Many professional scouts debated whether he should be a first round draft pick as a pitcher or as a hitter. In his first full season with the Reds, he hit 18 home runs with 67 RBI. He played for the Reds from 2002 until he was traded to the Washington Nationals in 2006 where he was known as one of the best fielding outfielders in the National League. In 2007, Austin had career highs in RBI (74) and games played (161). In 2010, Austin was acquired from the Cleveland Indians by the New York Yankees. This is the sixth year Austin has hosted the Austin Kearns Celebrity Golf Tournament. Austin, Abby, Aubrey and Brady live in Lexington during the off-season.
