Chris Oxspring - 2011-12 Sydney Blue Sox

Former Australian Major League Baseballer Chris Oxspring was one of the marqueeplayers  for the Blue Sox in my opinion. The Blue Sox were very fortunate to have two Australian pitchers with MLB experience - Oxspring and Brad Thomas. Add to that Korean legend Dae-Sung Koo, and their tally of three pitchers with Major League experience meant firepower in the bullpen.

Oxspring's career has highlights including playing MLB with the San Diego Padres, a 2004 Olympic Silver medal for Australia, stints with the Hanshin Tigers of the NPB and LG Twins in the KBO, and the privilege of throwing the first pitch of the inaugural ABL season in 2010-11.
