Australian MLB Invitational Squad Announced

Baseball Australia is proud to announce the attendees for the inaugural Australian MLB Invitational that will take place in Lismore, NSW. including Wests own players (out of 9 Qld players selected)

Matthew     Meleka           QLD
Aiden         Rasmussen    QLD
   

The Australian MLB Invitational is designed to allow the best 13 and 14 year old players in the country to play competitive games under the guise of both local and international coaches on home soil, and will be heavily subsidised by MLB to maximise player attendance.  

MLB Front Office Staff will be in attendance at the invitational, which is to be structured akin to the MLB Australian Academy Program (U15-U17), a longstanding program that has produced Major Leaguers like Brad Harman, Luke Hughes and Liam Hendriks.

Baseball Australia’s Head of High Performance Glenn Williams is excited to continue the already strong relationship with MLB.

“MLB’s support in Australia has been long standing, and the fact we get a chance to put in a program in place for another age group of athletes is excellent,” Williams said.

“The MLBAAP has produced some of the best baseball players to leave our shores. The fact we get to see and work with players at age 13 and 14 will no doubt help accelerate the development of the next generation of Australian stars.”

Players will be placed into teams which will be announced at a later date.

Great effort Matty and Aiden

FURTHER BREAKING NEWS

PRESS RELEASE

Brisbane City Council has advised Dave Carr that work will start on the building on our top baseball field early in June.

The old green container has been removed and works have commenced on the building.

NOTE: It is imperative that no member enters the area within the fenced off section around the  building - this is a work site and it is illegal to enter this area.

The downstairs walls will be replaced with a mesh wall which will prevent any buildup of gases from the old underground rubbish tip.

Keep your fingers crossed and we are hoping the building will be ready in time for us to use as our Clubrooms for the 2017/2018 season.

Well done Dave on your long and hard work working with BCC to achieve this wonderful outcome for the Club.
