Tyler (TJ) Bennett - 2015-16 Brisbane Bandits

Tyler (AKA TJ) Bennett was an American import who played with the Brisbane Bandits during the 2015-16 ABL season. Bennett had previously spent two seasons playing independent ball, in 2015 spending most of his time with the Schaumburg Boomers in the Frontier League, as well as playing a  single game with the Joplin Blasters in the American Association.

Whilst I liked the photo of Bennett joking around as his primary card image, I couldn't resist including the photo of him wincing as an alternate card image. From memory I think he was baserunning and ended up with some nasty cuts to his hand from the second baseman's cleats. I'm pretty sure he was out of the game after those injuries.(It could also have been the other way around - him fielding and getting spiked by a baserunner, but I'm fairly sure he was the runner.) The image is of the Bandits' staff assessing and cleaning up his wounds.
