Baseball Australia and the Brisbane Bandits would like to make the following statement regarding player Loek van Mil.

This past weekend in Canberra during the Bandits series against the Canberra Cavalry, Loek suffered serious head injuries in an accident unrelated to baseball, on Saturday 8th December. 

Loek is in a critical condition in Canberra Hospital being cared for by the hospital staff and doctors. Loek's family have been spoken to and a family member will be arriving in Australia shortly.

Loek is a highly respected baseball player across the ABL here in Australia, his home country of The Netherlands and many other parts of the world where he has played baseball. Our best wishes and prayers are with Loek and his family and friends at this very difficult time.

Baseball Australia and the Brisbane Bandits will provide updates on Loek's condition in consultation with his family when appropriate and we ask that the family's privacy be respected during this time.
