Michael Collins - 2011-12 Canberra Cavalry

At the age of 28, Collins is a Canberra baseball veteran. He started playing in the Rookie level leagues for the Anaheim Angels at age 16, and followed that with 11 seasons in the minors with both the Angels and the Padres, eventually reaching AAA level. He also played the first two ABL seasons with Canberra.

In 2012, Collins transitioned from playing to managing, looking after the Padres team in the Dominican Summer League. His experience at managing for the Padres lead to him being appointed as the Manager for the Canberra Cavalry for the 2012-13 ABL season following previous manager Steve Schrenk's inability to return for a third year.
