A Toronto native playing in the Tampa Bay Rays organisation, Tissenbaum heads down under for his first season in the ABL. Drafted out of high school by his hometown Blue Jays, he instead opted to attend Stony Brook University, where the Seawolves shocked the baseball world with their Cinderella run to the College World Series. Drafted three years later by the San Diego Padres, the catcher spent just two seasons in the Padres' organization before being dealt to the Tampa Bay Rays in the multiplayer swap headlined by Jesse Hahn, Alex Torres, Logan Forsythe, and Brad Boxberger. The Rays assigned him to the High-A Charlotte Stone Crabs for the 2014 season, and Tissenbaum responded by hitting .288 and posting terrific defensive numbers, namely a .992 fielding percentage and throwing out 43% of opposing baserunners. A true Canadian, the left handed hitter cites hockey as his favourite sport. Find out more about Tissenbaum and his career at his personal blog:
