Greg Mosel - 2016-17 Adelaide Bite

I'm pretty sure that this image is of Greg Mosel, an Aussie pitcher who made his debut with the Adelaide Bite during the 2016-17 ABL season. The ABL website lists Mosel as being born in Adelaide, however I've seen other sites listing him as coming from Darwin in the Northern Territory, and I'm not sure which is correct. Based on past experience, I'd probably take the other sites as being more accurate than the ABL website.

Mosel spent time playing for the Redlands Community College in El Reno, Oklahoma and the Southeast Missouri State University.
