Virgil Vasquez - 2011-12 Perth Heat
American pitcher Virgil Vasquez was a coup signing for Perth during the middle of the 2011-12 season. Vasquez is a former Major League player, having pitched 19 games between Detroit and Pittsburgh between 2007-2009. Tragedy struck him in 2010 when both his wrists were broken in a motor vehicle accident. Since then, he has been trying to re-establish himself in baseball. Being named the MVP of the 2012 ABL Championship Series certainly has done no harm to his quest. In 2012 he has returned to the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs in the independent Atlantic League.
