The 2001/2002 Off-Season




The Australian Baseball League

Following the Baseball World Cup held in Taiwan during November 2001, Brett returned to Cairns
For numerous reasons the Australian Baseball season was cancelled - this was to be held in December 2001 and January 2002

However, the state competition - THE CLAXTON SHIELD - was still going ahead and this was held during early February 2002

Brett was invited to play for Queensland, but was returning to the United States early to prepare for the 2002 Minor League season
