CANBERRA, ACT -- Baseball Australia player David 'Kandi' Kandilas magic glove will be called upon by Canberra Elite Cavalry this season as the veteran outfielder signs with the organisation for the 2016/17 Australian Baseball League (ABL) Season.

Kandilas played the first five seasons of the ABL in Sydney but the veteran will be donning orange and patrolling the outfield grass at Narrabundah Ballpark as soon as November 2016.

"I'm really excited about playing in Canberra," Kandilas said.

"I've heard nothing but good things from guys that have played there, and it'll be great preparation for me leading up to the World Baseball Classic next year."

"I can't wait to run onto the outfield with the team in front of the Canberra home crowd."

Canberra Cavalry CEO, Donn McMichael wants to take the Cavalry's third place success from last season and bring home a title win this season but wants the home crowds support.

"I know players like Kandilas will provide great entertainment not only in the outfield but with his bat," Donn said.

"I would like to see baseball on top of the summer sporting landscape in Canberra and I know we can with great Australian baseball talent like David Kandilas."

"I encourage the community to get down to the ballpark this season to see Kandilas and the team in action. You will not be disappointed."

The Cav will host some of the hottest rising talent from Australia and America for the 2016/17 season with further team announcements to come.

Kandilas and the Cavalry get their 2016/17 ABL campaign underway on the 17th of November in Brisbane against defending champions, the Brisbane Bandits proudly presented by WellDog.
