Just as I'm writing this, I realised I have another information source at hand. The official 2013-14 ABL card made for him by Dingo shows him as being born in Florida, so, I think we can definitely say that the ABL site appears wrong on his nationality. He is an American, not an Aussie.
And yes, he is pictured here with a helmet on even though he's a pitcher. This shot is of him acting as first base coach for the Bandits on the day in question.
