Hussey played with the Melbourne Aces, making his ABL debut during the 2012-13 ABL season, at which time he started enjoying playing semi-professional baseball again. After being told by scouts that the Padres still had him on their Restricted List, he contacted the Padres, and they accepted him back into the fold.. He started out 2013 playing for the Fort Wayne TinCaps in the A level Midwest league before being called up to play for the Lake Elsinore Storm in the high A level California League.
My photo of Hussey was a salvage job - I only had one poor photo of him from during the season, and this is the best I could do with it.
