In July of 2014, the Minnesota Twins signed an outfielder from South Africa named Rowan Ebersohn. He is a stocky 5-10 and about 200 pounds. The Twins have signed a couple of other minor leaguers from South Africa. He spent the 2015 season in the Gulf Coast League making adjustments to life in a new country as well as plenty of baseball to learn. He held his own and looks forward to the 2016 season.
