Chris Coleman - 2012-13 Canberra Cavalry

The case of the phantom player. Chris Coleman was a collegiate player (Missouri Baptist University) who joined the Canberra Cavalry for the 2012-13 ABL season. He was recruited by former Canberra coach Steve Shrenk during a tryout for the Philadelphia Phillies, along with fellow Canberra imports, Chris Motta and Antonio Callaway. He had apparently been a two time Second Team All American first baseman at University, but was converting to full-time pitching. His stint Down Under was designed to work on this change.

Due to an elbow problem he unfortunately ended up returning back to the US half way through the season without playing an ABL game. I still managed to get a photo of Coleman warming up in a game early in the season.
