May, DeMichele know Australian baseball

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- If the Dodgers or Diamondbacks want to know a little bit about baseball in Australia for their regular season contests there next weekend, they need look no further than White Sox Minor Leaguers Jacob May and Joey DeMichele. Both players took part in the Australian Baseball League this past winter and can agree upon the fans' fervor for these upcoming games.

"That's all they talked about when I was out there and how excited they are," said May, an outfielder who is the 15th ranked White Sox prospect per MLB.com. "It's going to be a great atmosphere."

"It's a big deal, and they are promoting it like heck," DeMichele said. "They might experience a little bit different than what we did."
