Dear members and supporters,
The baseball season is finally here, and we are all ready to go for our games this weekend after months of pre-season preparation and behind the scenes work.
The State League starts this weekend and our Junior Divisions start on Sunday! Our women’s program has a weekend off before starting next week, and our T-Ball Come and Try’s will begin next week.
After our State League Division 1 team held a successful trial against Gawler Rangers at our club season launch last month, they will now start their season with new coach Reed Brown at Kensington on Saturday, come on out at 4pm to watch the top level of the club compete this season.
Canteen and Bar rosters are available via our facebook members group, and on behalf of the club, good luck everyone with your games this weekend!
