Oakland Athletics: Aussie A's

The green and yellow team colours of the Oakland Athletics is similar to Australia's national sporting colours of green and gold. In 2007 Chris Snelling became the first Aussie to play for the Oakland Athletics, followed by Grant Balfour. Balfour is currently on the Athletics major league roster and he is making a regular contribution to the team. The Athletics have sporadically had Australians within their farm system, but with Russell Spear scouting for them in Australia it is just a matter of time before more Aussies join this club.
