The search for the overseas amateur
Could there be any truth in the rumour that Ratzinger will be the Carlton overseas amateur next season? Apparently, Ben, as he is known to his team mates, is a fan from afar of all Carlton's doings and a keen reader of the website. He has friends in the vicinity of the ground. A recent match report first brought these facts to light. He says that he is a top order batsman, very orthodox, used to being on the back foot. His helmet is a little bit pointed and jewel encrusted and his bat has a strange crook like shape. It is made by Mitre. Sunday games might be a problem for him. Apparently he has visited Edinburgh recently, but to his disappointment was unable to find the time for a net with Drummo, so we might have to take a leap of faith with him.
