Bendigo baseball product Billy Parsons will play more games for the Canberra Cavalry in the 2020/21 Australian Baseball League season.
The 21-year-old made his ABL debut last week with the Cavs against the Melbourne Aces, but now it's confirmed the team has called on the power pitcher to return to the mound.
"Earlier in the week I received a text asking if I wanted to fly up to Canberra to play this weekend and also future games in the series," Parsons said.
It was a no-brainer.
Parsons quickly arranged flights and on Thursday morning he was enroute to the capital city for the four-game series against the Aces which started on Thursday night.
"It's a great feeling to know they've chosen me. I must've done something right for them in the first game to be asked to play more games," Parsons said.
"It's a really great feeling and I am quite proud of myself."
Canberra Cavalry general manager Sunny Singh said Parsons was a solid addition to the team roster.
"Billy is a good young talent coming out of Victoria. We were given the tip-off from the Aces (Melbourne) that he was looking for an opportunity," Singh said.
"An opportunity arose last week within our squad...and Billy took it with both hands during his debut on Sunday and we were more than impressed to justify giving him a potential spot for the rest of the season."
The ABL was founded in 2010 and showcases some of the best local Australian and New Zealand talent.
The league features eight teams: Canberra Cavalry, Melbourne Aces, Perth Heat, Adelaide Giants, Brisbane Bandits, Sydney Blue Sox, Auckland Tuatara and Geelong-Korea (team is sitting out of the 2020/21 season).
