Donald Lutz - 2015-16 Brisbane Bandits

Former MLB player Lutz has returned to the ABL following his release from the Cincanniti Reds in June 2015. Lutz played in the inaugural ABL season back in 2010-11 with the Canberra Cavalry, before making his way up the Reds' professional chain to make his MLB debut in 2013. He played 62 games in the Majors across 2013 and 2014. In 2015 he spent time playing with the Reds' AAA affiliate, the Lousville Bats in the International League.

Although Lutz previous ABL experience was with Canberra, he has a strong affiltiation to Brisbane club ball, having played five seasons of "winterball" with the Windsor Royals. It was a natuaral progression following his release from the Reds to then come and play for Brisbane in the ABL.

I like Lutz - he was one of the first players I shot when making my own baseball cards. He was kind enough to doff his cap for me in a shot earlier in the day. The second shot is of him watching the ball in flight in what would end up being a Grand Slam home run against the Cavalry.
