Baseball NSW are extremely proud of the efforts from the two teams who represented our State at the Australian Intermediate League Championships between the 22nd – 26th of May.
In case you missed all the live action of AILC, Ryde Hawks and Hills both competed in the 5-day tournament to the best of their ability, with Hills coming away 7th and Ryde finishing 2nd place.
Ryde Hawks were successful throughout the tournament winning all their round games and the semi-final to earn themselves a spot in the gold medal match, but unfortunately were defeated by the Wanneroo Giants. Their determination to get to the gold medal match is a great achievement in itself and congratulations to Ryde on the silver medal!
Hills gave it their all throughout the tournament as well, and I’m sure the team enjoyed the opportunity to compete against the top teams from all the other states. We hope they enjoyed their time in Mildura!
We are extremely proud of these teams for the way they represented Baseball in NSW and congratulations to both teams on their efforts at AILC2022!

Congratulations to our NSW players who were selected in the National Junior Squad. Team Australia announced a 35-player 2022 National Junior Squad in preparation for this year’s WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup in the US.
It includes 11 players from New South Wales, nine from Victoria, seven from Western Australia, six out of Queensland along with a pair of South Australians.
Baseball Australia performance pathways and player development general manager Michael Crooks highlighted this was a competitive selection process with lots of depth in Australia’s Baseball talent.
The National Junior Squad, which was selected on the back of last month’s Junior Camp in Canberra, will leave Australia for the US in late August.
The final team will then depart for the September 9-18 World Cup in Bradenton and Sarasota. Players that are not selected for the World Cup squad will stay at Perfect Game’s facility for more recruitment and competition opportunities.
In case you missed all the live action of The Australian Senior League Championships 2022, our two NSW teams had very successful campaigns at the tournament bringing home 2 medals for our state, Bronze and Silver!
Manly were the first to medal, winning the Bronze medal match on Tuesday the 17th May against Gold Coast. They came back late, down by 2 runs in the 7th inning and managed to tie up the game before securing another run in the 8th and holding out Gold Coast to get the win.
Cronulla were successful throughout the tournament to earn themselves a spot in the Gold medal match but unfortunately were defeated by the Eastern Athletics. Their determination to get to the gold medal match, in itself, is a great achievement!
We are extremely proud of these teams for the way they represented Baseball in NSW and congratulations to both teams on medalling! To all the young players who will now graduate from Senior League, we wish you in all the best in your future with baseball.
Well done Manly and Cronulla Black for your success at the ASLC this year!

On Wednesday, 11th May, Head of BNSW Baseball 5, Adrian Medina, participated in Disability Sport Australia’s “Variety Activate Inclusion Sports Day” in Marrickville, Sydney.
The day was number 1 of 3 day-long events around Sydney, with 2 more being held at Olympic Park and Mount Annan in the following days. Baseball 5 was one of the 4 sports that had the pleasure of participating in the days, run for kids living with disabilities. Through Baseball 5, we show kids that living with disability doesn't have to be a barrier to enjoying sport and physical activity. The design of Baseball 5 allows for people of all abilities, ages, and gender to play a variant of the game we love, Baseball!
Adrian commented on the day, saying “the activities the kids enjoyed the most were the hand eye coordination drills and throwing to the target (soccer goal)”. It was great to see the Mayor of Marrickville, Councillor Darcy Byrne, and other office personnel, coming around at the beginning of the day and showing their support for these programs.
Thank you to Adrian for helping run the day and showing the kids how fun this sport can be!
