A native of Woodville, SA, Brice has had a long career that's spanned continents and brought him to some of the world's foremost baseball stages. After a successful rise at the club level in Australia, Brice went to the USA to play college ball at Faulkner State Community College in Alabama, where he was named the Alabama Junior College Player of the Year in 2002. Brice was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 24th round of the 2002 MLB Amateur Draft and spent five seasons in the White Sox organisation, hitting .295 and reaching as high as Class A Advanced. Later in his professional career, Brice spent one season with the St. Paul Saints of the independent American Association, hitting .238 in seven games, and one season with DOOR Neptunus of the Dutch Major League. In 19 games for Neptunus, Brice proved he could still hit against some of the top players in Europe, posting a .357 batting average with one home run and 17 RBIs. While pursuing professional ball north of Down Under, Brice continued to be a familiar face in the Australian baseball scene. He won a silver medal with Team Australia in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, and smacked a long home run in the gold medal game against Cuba. Brice donned the green and gold again for both the 2006 and 2009 World Baseball Classics, and in other international tournaments throughout the years.

When the new ABL started up in 2010, Brice joined his home-state Bite for the first three seasons before sitting out last year to play for South Australia's Kensington Baseball Club. 2014/15 marks his return to the Bite after his one-year hiatus. In four ABL seasons, Brice has a .319 batting average and 11 home runs, 48 RBIs, and 19 doubles in 263 at bats.
