Baseball is a year-round sport, just not in America. Baseball is full swing in the Australian Baseball League.
The Astros have a player or two in the ABL at this moment -- one of those players is Marc Wik. Wik joined the long history of players crashing through walls in the hopes of making a play.
Instead of padding on the outfield fence, it appears that the field the Adelaide Bite (yes, the team is called the Bite) had breakaway walls. The Bite beat the Melbourne Aces, 6-4 on Friday when Wik went through the wall.
Wik was drafted by the Astros in the 2012 in 21st round out of Chabot College. Wik spent 2015 in Single A Lancaster, batting .266 (80-301) with 17 doubles, four triples, eight home runs, 40 RBIs, and nine stolen bases. He played first base, second, third, designated hitter, left field, right field, and shortstop for the Jethawks last season.
