We got the news earlier that Luke Hughes, having apparently not received a contract for this MLB season has decided to put away his glove and return to AFL, a sport he starred in as a teenager. Now it seems that former Major Leaguer Shane Lindsay has also decided that there will be no contract for this MLB season.
In a huge coup for the club – which has been rebuilding its winter programme after a few seasons in the doldrums – Bacchus Marsh has inked former Major Leaguer Shane Lindsay to a role as Assistant Coach at Masons Lane for the 2013 Geelong Baseball Association season…..
Coming off a superb post-season with Essendon Baseball Club – which posted its second consecutive Division One Summer League Championship – the hard-throwing Lindsay spent time with Melbourne Aces during the Australian Baseball League season and was surely in consideration for another professional contract after a ten-year career in United States.
Originally signed by Colorado Rockies in 2003, 28 year-old Lindsay has also spent time with the Chicago White Sox organisation (twice), Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Dodgers.
He made his Major League debut with the White Sox in 2011, playing four games at the pinnacle of world baseball.
Aside from his professional career, Lindsay more recently represented Australia at the World Baseball Classic in Taiwan during March.
In returning to Bacchus Marsh, where he spent his formative baseball years, Shane Lindsay will again link up with Club Coach Earl Byrne – himself a former professional who reached AAA level – to form a formidable management team that has already sparked enormous interest in a Tigers club that has been working incredibly hard during the summer months to rebuild to a position of strength.
Onfield there is no doubt that the Tigers will stalk that little taller behind the Lindsay presence, with plenty of players around the league bound to be hopping against a hurler with real presence dialing it up with a mid-nineties fastball and who – as it happens – has serious hitting credentials that will be a further bonus at this level.
