THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (KTLA) -

A California high school athlete was looking to stand out from the crowd in hopes of landing a scholarship to play college baseball at a Division I school.

So the Thousand Oaks High School senior decided to think outside the box and auction himself off on eBay.

Austin Herold described himself as a "right-handed thrower" who was "All League Ventura County, All Marmonte League and Offensive Player of the Year" in 2013 on his eBay listing page.

He boasted a natural athleticism and said he was "passionate about the game and playing at the next level."

Herold had strong stats but was still having a hard time getting the attention of recruiters.

"It's a little unconventional," Herold admitted. But he said he had nothing to lose.

The winning bid on Herold's auction was $22.50.

It was not known if any college coaches were taking notice.
