**********************************************************************************

PLEASE..NOTE

When Brett started playing baseball back in 1986, computers weren't invented!! ... all of the details, photos and newspaper articles were put into albumns ... there are around twenty-five of these albumns, each one being in A4 size and around two/three inches thick ... literally hundreds and thousands of pages, and all of these need to be scanned and then uploaded to this web site ... a monumental job, and one day it will have to be done!! ... in the meantime, when you are looking at these albumns, you will see that some are not complete or there is a note to that effect ... can't do much about it, but one day I will start the scanning!!
Albumns included in this group are ... The Early Years ... Dodgers Baseball Club in Cairns and Brett's 'Strike Out King Award' ... 4CA and WIN Television Sportsperson of the Year ... 1995 Cairns Post Junior Sportstar of the Year ... Brett playing in the Brisbane Baseball League ... The 1995 and 1996 Brisbane Bandits and Brett's 'Rookie of the Year Award' ... The "AA" Championships in Brazil ... The 1998 and 1999 Kane County Cougars and Sharon and Tanya's trips to the USA ... plus a few others
One day they will all be complete ... and all the highlights and achievements will be added to this page

Okay, so some albumns are not complete and a few things are missing ... but there are still dozens of memories below as you will see when you scroll down the page!! ... from being punched in the back of the head during a game in 2004 to winning an Olympic Silver Medal ... I looked through all the albumns listed on
BRETT'S BASEBALL - MAIN INDEX PAGE

and listed below are the events that caught my eye ... lots has happened during his career and it is very difficult to make up a list like this ... what to include and what not to ... but I am sure that all the important milestones are listed ... I enjoyed sorting it out, and I am sure you will also have fun 'reliving' all of these moments!!

PLEASE..NOTE
Brett's ten injuries are hightlighted in green
