Biographical Information[edit]

Paul Elliott has managed in the minor leagues and also managed the Parramatta Patriots, Sydney Storm and Sydney Blues of the Australian Baseball League (a 86-67 record overall in Australia). He was a coach for the Australian National Team in the 2004 Olympics, 2006 World Baseball Classic, 2006 Intercontinental Cup, 2007 Baseball World Cup and 2009 World Baseball Classic.

Elliott signed with the Cincinnati Reds in 1978 but never played in their organization. He was with the Australian national team in 1977, 1979 and 1982 but did not appear with them in a major event such as the Baseball World Cup. He played in Australia's Claxton Shield from 1973-1989.

In the Gold Medal game of the 2004 Olympics, Elliott and manager Jon Deeble were ejected for arguing that Carlos Tabares of Cuba had trapped a fly from Tom Brice; the umpires had ruled that Tabares had caught it fairly.
