Luke Hughes - 2013-14 Perth Heat

Things kind of fell apart for former Aussie MLB player Hughes following the last ABL season. He failed to get picked up any of the MLB organisations during 2013 spring training, and there was talk of him heading over the Subiaco Lions in the WAFL to try his hand at Australian Rules Football. The Heat even started a bit of a "Hughes Knows" campaign emulating the Nike Bo Knows campaign from the late 80s / early 90s, however the campaign and the football career seem to have faded out of the media fairly quickly.

On top of all that, during his time with the Perth Heat during the 2013-14 ABL season, Hughes had to walk out to the sound of "Born in the USA" blaring from the ground PA when he came out to bat  in Canberra following his "Team USA' criticisms of the Canberra Cavalry after the 2012-13 season.
