George Barber - 2013-14 Perth Heat
Barber is an American import who played with the Perth Heat during the 2013-14 ABL season. Barber was originally drafted by the Anaheim Angels in 2010, spending a year playing Rookie ball before being released. He went back to studying Nursing, before being given a call by the Baltimore Orioles in 2013. The Orioles shuffled him between Double A, Single A and Low A teams in 2013 before releasing him. He obviously came across to Perth to try and enhance his chances of being resigned. Making it as a member of the World All-Star team during the season certainly wouldn't have hurt his chances.
