Jacob Robson is playing ball for the Sydney Blue Sox of the Australia Baseball League. The Blue Sox are heading into the final week of the regular season. The Massey grad took a moment to write home and tell us about his experience down under.
"I've had an amazing experience so far in Australia. My team mate’s, the coaching staff and personnel have been so welcoming and kind to the other imports and myself. The city of Sydney is beautiful and it’s been awesome to explore on my down time. I view this time as an opportunity to improve and progress on the baseball field because ultimately my goal is still to play in the big leagues. The fact that I can continue to train and face live pitching in a country that is basically covid free is a blessing. The pandemic has affected so many people negatively and most people in North America are not able to go out in public without putting themselves at risk. I’m very grateful for my time so far and I know I’m right where I’m supposed to be. I’m looking forward to the 2021 season with the Tigers and hope I can play at Comerica Park sooner than later".
