Alumni in Australia

The Australian Baseball League played their All-Star Game in Sydney on December 21.  A couple of former Timber Rattlers contributed to the World All-Stars 8-5 win over Team Australia.

McOwen had a 3-for-4 day with a double, a couple of runs scored, and a walk. Almonte was 1-for-4 with a walk, a home run, an RBI, and two runs scored.

Here’s the boxscore of the game.

I found a few Australian links with video, but those videos cannot be viewed in the US.  So…from here is a current photo of James McOwen with a quote.

“It was a pretty evenly-matched game but they slipped up a little bit and we held on strong and were able to get those last three outs,” he said.
