With the Australian Spring arriving and the new season about to start, it marks the closing of MiLB baseball in the USA.
It also means the return of our two successful pros, Brandon Stenhouse (NewYork Yankees GCL) and Sam Street (West Virginia Power, Pittsburgh Pirates, A class).
It was Brando’s first season in the minors and all appears to have gone pretty well, with only a couple of tough outings adversely impacting an otherwise really positive start. His stats show a very low batting average against and an excellent strikeout rate.

It was Sam’s first full year in the minors, after last year’s short season stint with the Jamestown Jammers, and again it was a very positive year maintaining a very low ERA, and collecting 7 saves.

His return to Australia has been slightly delayed as his team, the West Virginia Power, topped their league and they have just started their playoffs.

Our other overseas guy,Jack Wills ( Redwood College, California) has settled into his new home and we will follow his progress as he approaches his first year US college experience. College baseball starts on Feb. 16 but Jack will be working hard during the US Fall. (See an article on Jack at: Jack Wills of to the USA)
