Phillies Sign Aussie Catcher

+

A nice job by Matt Eddy of Baseball America tracking this one down. Tough to come by a ton of information here, but the above linked Australian Baseball Digest piece notes that 17-year old Liam Bedford plays for Essendon Club in Melbourne and has represented Austrlia on the U-18 national team. Interesting little pipeline the Phillies have established in Australia over the past few years, with guys like Drew Naylor, Tim Kennelly, Joel Naughton and Alan Schoenberger all joining the organization from Down Under. It's not a baseball hotbed by any means, but it's refreshing to see the organization looking for talent off the beaten path.
