Card Of The Week January 2

I've been meaning to get a post done for the new Australian Baseball League for a month or so now but I just haven't gotten around to it. Both the Giants and the Hawks sent a handful of players to play in the league, but I think they all came home just before Christmas. The biggest name of the Japanese players is Yoshiyuki Kamei of the Giants who was on Japan's World Baseball Classic team in 2009. At the point that he left, he was leading the league with a ridiculous .438/.500/.839 line (although he no longer has enough plate appearances to qualify for these categories) along with 7 home runs and 25 RBIs (still best in the league although it looks like his Melbourne Aces teammate Andrew Russell is about to pass him).

Here's Kamei's 2005 BBM Giants card (#G060):
