The most disappointing thing was how I found out about it. I received a text message from a friend who read on the Baseball America website that I had been released and he was sending his apologies for the finding out the news. I didn't write back to him straight away, and instead I immediately wondered whether this was true or not. I was quite puzzled so I sought out the advice from a senior player on the team and he recommended I contact me scout. So I called my scout in Australia to see what was going on. I spoke to him for about 20 seconds and he told me that I had been released and that I should have received a call from the office informing me of my release. I'm sure this situation should have been handled differently, after all, how is it I don't find out about my release before anything is posted online for the world to see?
