Baseball NSW would like acknowledge and recognise the contribution Adam Dobb has made to the Sydney Blue Sox Association. Please see full announcement by clicking the below button.
We would like to congratulate those players that have been selected for the U18 National Junior Squad to take part in the U18 National Team Selection Camp scheduled for late August.
To have 11 players selected in a squad of 25 is a fantastic representation of the talent we have in our state. All of the stakeholders that have taken part in these players development should be congratulated.
We also congratulate the players that were unlucky not to be selected but form part of the shadow squad that is working hard to try and breakthrough into the squad prior to the camp in August.
With three champions to be crowned tomorrow, it comes down to the final day of competition at Peter Van Hasselt Park.
All Championship games will be live-streamed - making sure you don't miss a pitch.
Best of luck to all teams involved!

As we conclude day 3 of the Senior League State Championships, it brings to an end the action in pool play.
Manly topped pool A with a 4-0 record, whilst Ryde Black claimed second spot with a record of 3-1.
Macarthur ran away with pool B, however, second spot was up for grabs with 3 teams in contention going into the final pool games. In the end, it was Cronulla Black that booked themselves a spot in the semi-final over Ryde Red by virtue of their head to head record.
Day 4 will kick off with consolation games taking place on all three diamonds, with games starting at 9am.
Semi-final action will get underway at 11:45am on diamonds 1 and 2

Day one of the 2021 NSW Senior League State Champs started under a blanket fog and some concern over start times after unexpected storms over the greater Sydney basin last night.
