Canberra Cavalry Could Become Australian Baseball League's Richest Club
The Canberra Cavalry "could become the richest club in the Australian Baseball League if they can win the Asia Series in Taiwan" to claim the A$500,000 ($468,000) prizemoney, according to David Polkinghorne of the CANBERRA TIMES. Cavalry GM Thom Carter said that "they would be massive underdogs, up against Japan champions Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles and Taiwan runners-up EDA Rhinos for a spot in the finals." Carter said it would be an ''organisation-changing'' windfall if they did, and the club "would sit down with the ABL to work out how best to use the money, with junior development high on the list." Major League Baseball "is a major backer of both the Cavalry and the ABL, but it wants the league to be financially independent" by '15 (CANBERRA TIMES, 11/12).
