Andrew Don

1st Import for 2019/20 season

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.

Let’s make him feel welcome!

Come and Try Baseball day 2019

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.

Cheers Aj
