After initially being placed on the GCL roster for the 2011 season, today I was placed on the roster for the Elizabethton Twins. I am very excited to be heading to a new city after spending the last 3 months in Fort Myers. We have our last practice session tomorrow before we leave for Elizabethton Saturday night, driving through the night and reaching our destination at around 4:00pm on Sunday afternoon.
This is the first promotion of my young career, and I can only hope there will be more to come within the next few years. All I have to do is keep working hard and good things will come. A lot of Australians have told me, once you get out of rookie ball you start to experience real professional baseball, and I am looking forward to Opening Night on Tuesday at Joe O'Brien Field in front of our home crowd.
