Luke Hughes - 2014-15 Perth Heat
Former Aussie MLB player Hughes returns in 2014-15 for his fifth straight season in the ABL with the Perth Heat. Although still playing for the Heat during the ABL season, 2014 marked the start of Hughes' move into coaching. He spent 2014 in coaching roles with both the Australian women's baseball team and the MLB Australian Academy on the Gold Coast. During his time playing with the Heat during the 2014-15 season he was also the team's hitting instructor. Anybody who can boast of having hit a home run with your first MLB at bat definitely has some batting skill they can pass on to up and coming players.
