Oskar Baker was selected with pick #48 by the Melbourne FC in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft.
Oskar cemented his spot in Aspley's NEAFL side in 2017 using his breakaway speed and attacking flair with great affect.
He was the NEAFL Rising Star nominee in Rd 6 after a breakout performance against Redland where he took 4 marks, had 4 inside 50's, 4 rebound 50's and kicked a spectacular goal on the run.
Oskar also won the NEAFL Goal Of The Year Award for his effort in Rd 14 against Gold Coast Suns where he had 4 bounces from halfback and converted from 50m.
Oskar will bring pace, ball carrying ability and attacking flair to Melbourne FC's list, especially on the wide expanses of the MCG!
