Though I hadn't known Brandon from his previous time with the Cheetahs, I was well aware of his reputation as a good man and a good player long before he came to camp with the team. From the day I started my time here in January, fans had asked if Brandon was coming back - very rare in independent baseball, especially for a player who was not with us last year. That showed me how well-regarded Brandon is with our fans.

Everything he's done since the day I met him has proven that his reputation is well deserved. He is a steadying influence on a team that's been through a lot of on-field and coaching changes, and has been a leader by example when it comes to work ethic and professionalism.

The Cheetahs will thank Brandon in many ways, publicly and privately, for his service to the team and for what he has meant to the organization. We just wanted to make sure that here, where the fans come to talk about their team, that everyone knows that we in the front office realize what a special person Brandon is, and that he will be missed in Crestwood.

I think the Cheetahs should retire Cheetah Jersey #11 to honor Brandon and his terrific efforts with the team in his many years with the Cheetahs. Its just ashame that team management didn't utilize his skills as much as they should have this year, I think that is what prompted Brandon to retire. Lack of being able to play and lack of scouts being able to see him for a possible contract for an affiliated team. He really gave everything he had 110% to the team.

What do you say about retiring Jersey #11??
Nobody will be able to fill that #11 Jersey like Brandon. He's a wonderful man, and its such ashame to see him go. Management should be ashamed for not utilizing his talents.

How about Brandon coming back as Manager or Coach next year? He's an integral part of Cheetah history.

Brandon: I wish you the best life can bring, and I hope to see you in the Majors someday, I know you've got what it takes, its ashame team management didn't see that too, its definately their loss. If you read these boards, I'd love to know what your next plans are if you will continue to play ball in Australia so that we can follow you from the web. Good Luck in your baseball career, you certainly deserve it.
