The Australian Baseball League (ABL) is excited to announce Joel Hiscox, from Flynn in the Australian Capital Territory has won the baseball trip of a lifetime, as he heads to the MLB® World Series® later this month.
A member of the Canberra Cavalry, Joel has been a member for four seasons, and is over the moon to be heading to the World Series.
"It's all a bit surreal at the moment," Hiscox said.
"I'd like to thank the ABL for giving me the opportunity to go to the World Series. I can't believe I was lucky enough to be selected, and can't wait to get over there!"
Hiscox is a member of the Belconnen Bandits in the Canberra Baseball League, and will be taking his father David to the World Series later this month.
"I got the e-mail months ago, and really didn't think anything of it," Hiscox said.
"Dad comes along to the Cavalry games when he's in town, he's a massive sports fan, I can't wait to take him."
Hiscox's big win was made possible when Perth Heat Member Dr Alan Thomas from Melville South in Perth, was the first member randomly drawn. Dr Thomas, a surgeon from WA, elected to return the major prize to the prize pool, as he had previous commitments, and believed another ABL fan would do the trip of a lifetime "justice." A very generous offer indeed.
A member from each Club will also win the runner up prize an Authentic Playing Jersey thanks to VIVA. Winners of the Authentic Playing Jersey will be announced next week.
