Who is Timothy Cox?
As an 18 year old, Cox was signed to the Boston Red Sox organisation by Jon Deeble and had a solid first season with the GCL Red Sox going 3-1 with a 2.19 ERA and was promoted to the Lowell Spinners going a 1-1 season and a 3.89 ERA. His maiden season proving to be very successful with a Gulf Coast League best 56 strikeouts.
He was then promoted to Class A with the Greenville Drive and as a relief pitcher he went 5-6 with a 2.80 ERA. His success was rewarded by making the Australia national baseball team for the 2006 Intercontinental Cup, he recorded a 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA.
In 2007, he was again promoted to the Lancaster JetHawks, but being the youngest on the team at 20 years old, Cox struggled with a 6.18 ERA and mid-season was hit in the head by a line drive and decided to retire from a career in the US.
Cox returned to baseball in Australia for the 2008 Claxton Shield where he dominated the competition, going 3-0 with a 1.00 ERA and was awarded Claxton Shield Pitcher of the Year. Unfortunately he gave up a one run in the final, a solo shot from Mitch Graham, which would prove costly as Perth Heat's Mark Kelly would go on to throw a shutout.
