    I feel that Luke Hughes will be the 28th Australian to play MLB. Shane Lindsay is making a good run for a call up to “The Show” but James Beresford is probably still at least a year or two off in my opinion. Once there though I feel Beresford will have a long tenure in MLB. Nicholas R.W. Henning – Australian Baseball Author
