Ethan Cole - 2013-14 Canberra Cavalry

The strong bond between the Kansas City T-Bones, forged by swapping a number of pitchers over the last couple of seasons continues with American Ethan Cole being the latest T-Bone to join the Canberra Cavalry. Cole is playing as an import for the Cavalry for the 2013-14 ABL season. Cole spent 2011 and 2012 playing in St Louis Cardinals minor league teams before being released, and playing for the Kansas City T-Bones in 2013.

I have to admit I love this shot of Cole because of the "degree of difficulty" around the shot. It was a hot, sunny 40°C day (that's 104°F for American readers), and there was a harsh shadow from a light tower going across the pitcher's mound.  The pitchers would move through the shadow during their windup and delivery, so I was quite happy to get this action shot from during the game both without shadow from the light tower, or from his cap obscuring his face..
