Craig “Frita” Kernick
A career .277 hitter in the Australian Baseball League, Craig Kernick was a fixture for the Waverley Reds (1990-1991), the Melbourne Bushrangers (1992) and the Melbourne Monarchs (1993-1994) in the early days of the ABL.
Since retiring from the game Craig has continued to enjoy the sport as a coach and part-time media personality.
“Baseball to me is a test of physical prowess and mental toughness. I'd say thats what I love about the sport the most," Kernick said.
You can catch Craig, his “Coaches Rant”, and his unique view of the game every week on Baseball Radio National.
Part-time journalist and full-time fan, when James isn’t thinking, talking or writing about baseball – He’s playing it, albeit not at a very high level.
Working for Baseball Victoria as its Website & Media Officer, James has also written for a number of publications including The Age and Inside Sport.
Falling in love with the game as a seventeen year-old school student, James hasn’t looked back admitting to “living and breathing the sport” since that very day.
“What can I say? If I could talk about baseball for a living I would. I guess I’ll just have to live with doing it one night a week.”
When he’s not trying to keep Craig in line, you’ll find James elbow deep in statistics as he tries to bring you the latest in depth baseball news from Australia and abroad.
