Nick Blount - 2014-15 Melbourne Aces

Was a bit disappointed during the recent ABL game between Canberra and Melbourne that I attended. Most of the Melbourne players were wearing jumpers/hoodies. Normally I only try and get shots of the players in uniform, and will usually get decent shots of between 17-19 of the 22 players that come into town for each series. Obviously the Melbourne players were feeling the cold thus particular night, and I only got shots of about a dozen players in uniform. I'll have to make do with some "training gear" shots, which I consider less than ideal.

The other point about the players wearing jumpers/hoodies is that it makes it harder to identify the imports and fringe players without their uniform number visible.

I believe that this shot is of American import Nick Blount. Blount is a member of the Chicago White Sox organisation, playing with the Melbourne Aces during the 2014-15 ABL season. He had a short stint with the White Sox' Rookie level  Arizona League team in 2014,  but spent the majority of his time at the high-A level Winston-Salem Dash of the Carolina League.
