Gibbons will complete Year 12 at Belmont High School this year prior to heading to Fort Myers (Florida) in April, for extended spring training with the Twins. It will be the start of a journey that Gibbons hopes may track the path of Baycats teammate Josh Spence and even the great Graeme Lloyd, Geelong’s most decorated baseball product.“It’s pretty overwhelming at the moment,” Gibbons admitted, “and I’m sure it hasn’t sunk in just yet. I guess it will when I get over there.”“We knew that the scouts were interested, but it’s still hard to believe that it has happened,” he said.“I didn’t get much sleep the first night.”While spring training is nine months off, Sam Gibbons has plenty on the agenda to occupy his time in the interim. To help with his rehabilitation, the Twins will be supplying a throwing programme that will enable him to see some mound time with Deakin before he heads off with the Baycats to the Grand Forks International in late August.
