    From the Canberra Times (with a Hat Tip to BaseballThinkFactory.org):

    The latest Canberra teenager bound for the big US baseball leagues is expected to sign a seven-year deal with the New York Yankees today.

    Kyle Perkins, 16, joins the world’s most renowned baseball club after being spotted by a Yankees scout during last year’s under-18 national championship in Western Australia.

    The 16-year-old Daramalan College student was told a fortnight ago to expect an offer from the baseballing powerhouse. And today it arrives.

    Perkins, who is in Year 11, will join the club roster as a catcher in 2010 after he has finished school.

    Until then he is expected to follow a rigorous training regime and a strict diet and put in a lot of hard work.

    Perkins has been recruited by the Yankees along with Victorian teenager Nathan Aron.

    A seven-year deal? Me thinks something got lost in translation here. Either that, or, I think a dingo ate some Yankees scout’s brain.
