Adelaide native Lodge has been a rising star in the South Australian baseball scene for many years. He received the SASI baseball scholarship in 2008 and 2009, and earned a scholarship to the MLB Australian Academy Program in Gold Coast in 2009. Lodge won the academy MVP award that year as well, and made his ABL debut two years later, picking up five at bats in the 2011/12 season. He saw regular playing time the next season, and ht .228 with seven doubles, five home runs, and 20 RBIs en route to winning the ABL Rookie of the Year award. In 2013/14, Lodge posted his best numbers to date, hitting .291 and being named to Team Australia in the 2013/14 ABL All-Star Game. He also won the Bite's batting award at the end of that season.

Lodge has the combination of blistering speed and a bullet arm, making him a real threat in the outfield. He also spent the first part of the 2014/15 season playing for Team Australia at the inaugural U21 Baseball World Cup in Taiwan. In the offseason, Lodge works as an assistant coach with the SASI baseball program, the same program that boosted him up.
