Tonight brings the end to our Dodgers T-Ball program for the season, and hopefully the cool change comes earlier in the night so they can enjoy their last game. There will be a presentation ceremony held at the conclusion of their games on the hill in front of the clubrooms. If the weather stays too hot to play, then it will move to 6pm instead, so either way there will be a send off to our young players tonight.
If you are at the club tonight, or not too busy, please wear a Dodgers shirt and come down to support the kids on their final night.
This Saturday our Division 1 side take on Sturt in what should be an action packed game. Coinciding with this is our Ladies Day event, so please see information attached and speak to Liv Trembath for what should be another great day and Dodger event.
Good luck to all our players, volunteers and supporters this week around the club in their games.

A VERY DODGY QUIZ NIGHT
Our club’s Quiz Night was held at Ardtornish Primary School last Saturday with the theme of a ‘Very Dodgy Quiz Night” and there were definitely some very dodgy outfits on show. It was great to have a good laugh outside of the diamond with our fellow club members.
Categories on the night included General Knowledge, History, Geography, Australiana, Pop Culture, Sport, and of course, Baseball. Bonus rounds included “Name the MLB Mascot” and “Who is that Dodger Baby/Toddler”, which included one Dodger who didn’t even recognise their own photo.
Other games on the night were Heads or Tails, and some always entertaining coin skimming games.
Best dress was voted by all tables and went to the below Dodgers:
– Sam Tibbits for extra effort, DIY mohawk really stood out and he won a personalised LA Dodgers playing top.
– Jodie Walsh for her great Kath tracksuit getup.
– Michelle Hallam for her impressive full Kimmy outfit.
Honourable mentions in the votes went to Sam Pullens, Shaun Evans, Heather Wardrop, Janine Fedorchuk-Weeks and the family of the Barnes mullets.
Thanks to Liv Trembath and all her helpers, including Janine Fedorchuk-Weeks, Tess Diplock, Lauren Leske, Jackie Tagg, and Michelle Hallam.
