The Eagles Baseball Club Annual General Meeting is coming up. Thursday 30th July 2020 at the Fenway Public House, upstairs at 7pm.
All members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Current committee positions will be vacated and new committee elected. Please consider how you can assist your Club and put your hand up to help. Many hands make light work!
Please find yourself in the attached roster and check your availability for your rostered days.
If you are not available it is up to you to organise a swap. Each coach has this roster and will advise if someone does not show up to umpire and the rostered umpire will be benched for that weekends seniors game.
Replying to the email or posting in Kambah Seniors group to say you’re not available is not enough. You need to name your replacement if swapping.
It’s a small contribution to help us through the season. Please assist and ensure your shift is covered one way or another.
Eagles Umpire Duty 2019 – 2020 Season
1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Grade players to umpire u11, u13, u15 & u18 games
It is your responsibility to attend OR arrange your OWN replacement. Failure to do this : you will be benched for 1 game.
Fantastic turn out for Come and Try Day yesterday. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped and thanks to all who came and had a Try. We hope you got a good taste and hope to see you all at pre-season training in a few weeks.
Announcement this week was the signing of our 1st import for the season with Head Coach AJ working tirelessly to secure a 2nd.
Our newest member will be joining us from California where he has Independent baseball experience along with playing in Mexico and South Victoria. In 2017 Phillip was a member of the South Gippsland Miners & the Boneo Braves where he hit a .405 batting avg for the Miners & .285 for the Braves while leading both teams in stolen bases. The kids got wheels and plenty of pop and we look forward to having Phillip join us all the way from The US.
Calling all seniors, across all grades, old and new and soon to be women’s team. Come on down to Ron Barnes Ballpark to meet your future fellow club men, have a chat with the coaches and hear their thoughts and expectations for the upcoming season. The announcement of the competition format for the season makes it a good chance to work out where people think they might like to play.
We’ll be holding our annual Come and Try Baseball Day on September 7. For existing members this is a good chance to tell your friends/family about how great baseball is for your summer sport and encourage them to get along and have a try. The day is open for all ages (see image below).
For parents it would be fantastic if you could help us recruit by placing our flyer in your school’s newsletter or hanging one at your winter sport canteens and spreading the word.
We will be posting session times soon so keep checking for the update

Word from the Head Coach
Thanks very much for the honour. I’m excited in having the opportunity to pass some of what I’ve learned over my 20+ years in baseball to the next generation of players. My baseball background consists of predominately New South Wales Major League first grade, multiple age state representation, Institute of Sport and Australian Provincial.
I am very passionate about the game, the process of developing player skills, bonding a strong and united team/club, and developing good work ethic during practices and games. It is my belief that as the coach it is my role to ensure that all of this can be achieved while having fun along the way.
If at any time anyone needs anything else you can reach me via Eagles Email initially
Thank you all and here’s to a successful 2019/2020 season.
