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.
Eagles would like to congratulate and welcome Nathan “Ayjay” Allen-Jones to the Head Coaches role for 2019/2020.

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.
The schedule match for the Under 17s (Senior League) between Eagles V Rebels for Saturday the 22nd December 2018 has been rescheduled for Thursday night 20th Dec 2018 at Kambah.
Brett, the team manager, will be in contact via email to the team.
Ps. This means that Seniors training will be limited to batting cage for those that are still keen.
Due to the weather – No training tonight at the ballpark

Welcome back to Eagles Baseball and it’s great to see that we have the numbers for an U17 team this coming season.
Just an update about training and apologies that the communications have been a bit slow, but I assume that you have all just returned from school holidays anyway.
You will be coached the year by the three US imports to the club which is exciting as they bring a wealth of knowledge about the game and terrific enthusiasm as well. Boomer (some of you know him from last year) is returning having won the A Grade MVP for Canberra last year, and Ed Warren and Steve Farkas who are both hard throwing left handed pitchers from North Carolina will be assisting. The guys are new to town so please make them feel very welcome.
As some of you will be playing seniors as well, we have decided to run a dedicated u17 session on Monday nights from 5pm and a second training with the seniors on Thursday nights. If you can only make one session (exams may just pop up) the Monday would be the one.
We don’t have a draw yet so I’m unsure about midweek games etc, but I would expect at the very least there will be 4 clubs fielding teams on a Saturday which is great news.
Having spent the last few years with you guys, I’ll come down and introduce you to the American boys on Monday at 5.
First, welcome to the 2018-19 season of eagles baseball. We have a mix of returning, new and players moving up in age group, so it should be fun.
By way of introduction I am Mark Ballhause, and along with Belinda Hull, we will be the coaches this year. Neither of us have coached baseball before but helped with the U11s last year.
The season is fast approaching, with the first game on 20 Oct (the first Saturday after school goes back). Therefore, it is important that we get some training in, so the boys all meet each other before then.
We have decided to train on Mondays and Wednesdays this year from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. If you can’t make both nights, we would prefer to have everyone at training on Wednesday nights. We intend to use Mondays for skills development, and Wednesdays for skills and gameplay.
Training will start this Wednesday 10 Oct for those that can make it. (Sorry for the short notice). If you can’t make it this week, it is ok as I know it is school holidays and people may not be around. Training for both nights will start next
Last time I checked, the draw had not been finalised yet, but I will send an email out next week with some other details.
We will need to get some parents to help with scoring this year (Belinda was our scorer last year). Belinda and I look forward to meeting and working with you all this year. My focus will be to develop the kids skills…..but most importantly….. to have fun!
If you haven’t check recently, the Junior Training schedule has had a few updates and we encourage to go and have a check.
