Club History

Our Club was formed in 1953 with 1 team, and used a family member's garden shed as a Clubhouse.

We have always been a real family Club with some Families having had 4 generations involved with running and playing for the Club.

 

The Club has played in Mayfield the entire time, starting at Dangar Park, before building Boomerang Field in 1979, most of the work carried out voluntarily by Club members including erecting the screen and fences, laying the turf, building the dugouts and a batting tunnel and the ground is still maintained entirely with voluntary labour.

 

It is considered by most baseball players to be the best playing surface in Newcastle.

 

The Club Colours have remained Bottle Green and White throughout the clubs 65 years.

 

Thousands of locals have played Senior & Junior Baseball as well as Softball with the Club We currently have 4 Senior and 4 Junior sides A majority of funds have been raised by Club members with support from our Major Sponsor Beauford Hotel, Mayfield (22 years).
