Au Revoir Fabian Beck

With the GBL season now over, we must bid farewell to one of our favourite players and junior coaches - Fabian Beck.

Fabian must fly home to Stuttgart before he gets stranded in Australia.

Fabian - from the bottom of our hearts - a sincere thanks for being a wonderful member of the Bulldogs family. It was so nice to see you each time - you always with a smile on your face and a friendly chat. Always positive and cheerful. You have been a wonderful ambassador for your family and the Stuttgart Reds.

We will all miss you so very much - your Little League Blue team and all of the Little League players - your fantastic team manager Kevin Alexander; your Division 3 team that finished on top of the ladder and therefore Premiers - all knew that as soon as the ball was hit anywhere near centrefield, you had it covered; same for your Under 20's team; your host families - the Sloans and the Coogans - we will all miss you very much.

However we also know that whatever you want to do in life, you will succeed and enjoy the expereriences along the way to achieve your goals.

Good luck, safe travel and good health.

Baseball Queensland COVID-19 Update Tuesday 17 March 12:00 PM – Overall Update


Baseball Queensland, in this unprecedented and unique situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, is taking a lead from international and national sporting codes to postpone all Queensland Baseball activity from Wednesday, 18 March 2020 until Wednesday, 8 April 2020. 
 
Decisions in relation to the health and safety of our baseball community have been given careful consideration. Following consultations with the federal and state government, Sport Australia and Baseball Australia and our state and territory baseball counterparts, we are postponing our non-essential static gatherings as a precautionary action to assist in stopping the spread of this virus to the most vulnerable members of our communities. 
 
Baseball Queensland and all our member clubs and associations will cease, for 21 days, all training, club activities and team meetings, as well as events, tournaments and competitions.

Club Presentation Nights POSTPONED

The Annual Presentation and Awards night for our Senior and Junior players have been POSTPONED

To all our Wests members,

It is with regret I write to advise all members that the following planned events will be postponed until much later in the year.

  • Juniors Presentation night
  • Seniors Presentation night

The Club Committee has taken this decision in line with advice in relation to trying to minimise the spread of the corona virus pandemic. We believe we would be irresponsible in continuing with the above two events given the current uncertainty relating to the spread of this flu like virus.

The Committee will reassess when to hold these events once the corona virus pandemic has been resolved.

It is possible the two events may be held to kick start the new 2020/2021 summer baseball season in August/September but no firm plans at this stage.

GBL Summer baseball season over

Consistent with Baseball Queensland’s (BQ) decision to postpone all Queensland Baseball activity from Wednesday, 18 March 2020 until Wednesday, 8 April 2020, the GBL Competition Committee has advised Baseball Queensland that the GBL summer baseball competition should now conclude prior to the finals series commencing.

Considering the advice received to date, the precautions taken by Baseball Queensland and time required for athletes to prepare after the resumption of regular activities the GBL Committee has assessed that few opportunities exist to reschedule games.

Therefore pursuant to the following By-Laws 5.20.8 (for senior competition); 6.19.9 (for Masters) and 7.19.6 (for juniors), the GBL Competition Committee congratulates the following teams for winning their respective Division Premiership by virtue of finishing on top of their Division ladder.
