This week brings a lot of action to Dodger town, we have five home games Saturday and another five on Sunday including a derby between our Minor League sides.
Our first Division One home game is on Saturday, there will be a special presentation of a memorial shield between GGCD and Kensington after the game in memory of Darren Jolley who was involved at both clubs. Come out and see the talent in the State League program, the canteen and bar will open all day Saturday.

T-Ball Come and Try
Monday night’s T-Ball Come and Try was a big success. We had a great turnout for the first session, and we have another one to go. A big thank you to Bob Neiswander for organising and all volunteers, including a lot of our Junior players that came out to support.
Friday, 21 October 2022 at 6pm will be our final Come and Try date before the kids are put into teams next week to start their competition.
The co-ordinator, Bob Neiswander, tells me that we are expecting bigger numbers this year with the interest we are getting, so it looks to be a lively program for Dodgers T-Ball again this season.
T-Ball Umpire Clinic
Neil Poulton from BUASA is hosting a umpire clinic for our T-Ball umpires tonight (20 October) from 6pm to 7pm at the club rooms.
T-Ball games are played on Friday nights from 6pm and 7pm, and interested junior players are welcome to umpire these games. You need to attend this clinic if aiming to umpire.
Speak to Bob Neiswander if you require more information.

Next Saturday, 29 October 2022, from 6:30pm the club will be hosting a Halloween night to remember. This event is always a popular one amongst our younger and not-so-young members, so get your costume ready and come out to Dodger town.
The club canteen will be open with hot food and spooky treats. They’ll be fun games including dizzy bats and more.
