The finals of the Australian Baseball League wrapped up on Saturday, with Brisbane sweeping the best-of-three series over Perth. We are going to have a full winter recap for all of the Pittsburgh Pirates who saw action this off-season, but they haven’t finished up in the Caribbean yet, so we will have that article next weekend.
As the title of this article suggests, something special happened today in Australia (with some video proof), so we threw together a quick article that covers the entire playoffs for infielder Robbie Glendinning.
The playoffs are two rounds of three-game series in Australia and Glendinning had a solid performance in the five games he played. Here is the game-by-game recap:
Last Friday was the playoff opener and Glendinning went 0-for-2 with two walks.
Last Saturday, he went 1-for-4 with a single.
Last Sunday, he went 2-for-4 with two runs and three RBIs. Here’s video of one of his RBI singles…
