The Minnesota Twins gave first baseman Jack Barrie from Queensland, Australia a great birthday gift when they signed him to a $200,000 bonus on his 18th birthday. The right-handed power hitting Barrie was a standout for Queensland’s gold medal-winning Bandits in last month’s under-18 national championships in Canberra, Australia where he was awarded the tournament’s Golden Bat. Barrie’s Mom is obviously very excited about the signing and said the “Jack has practiced and practiced and practiced; he eats, sleeps and breathes baseball”. Barrie will be reporting to Spring Training in Ft. Myers next month.
