Kevin Reese - 2012-13 Melbourne Aces

Reese is a returning American import who played with the Melbourne Aces during the 2012-13 ABL season. Reese had originally been playing club level ball with the Malvern Braves before earning a spot on the Aces 2011-12 ABL roster. He returned to play for the Aces again in 2012-13. Reese had previously played for several teams in the Frontier League - being named as a Frontier League All Star in 2010. Not to be confused with former New York Yankees picker Kevin Reese who was born in California in 1978, this Reese was born in Philadelphia in 1985.

Being a pitcher in a league employing the Designated Hitter rule, you might ask "Why does my photo of Reese have him wearing a batting helmet?" And the answer would be because the photo was taken of him acting as First Base Coach for the Aces during a game in Canberra.
