Nathan Ven Der Linden - 2016-17 Adelaide Bite

Locally born Van Der Linden returned to the Adelaide Bite roster in 2016-17 having previously had cameo appearances for the Bite in 2012-13 and 2013-14 ABL seasons.  Part of his time in between was spent playing for Skokani Olomouc in the Czech Extraliga in 2016.

I can’t help but also mention that Van der Linden was  a part of the Drop Bears (USA) team that competed in the 2016 Prague Baseball Week. The team is described on the Prague Baseball Week website as a selection of mostly USA players, however with the name Drop Bears, and with the likes of Van Der Linden and other Aussies such as Mitch Nilsson, Ryan Battaglia and Scott Mulhearn, I suspect there was quite an Aussie influence on that team.
