Baseball Masters in full swing

The annual Mount Gambier Baseball Masters is on again as it returns to the region for the 17th time this weekend.

The event, to be held on Friday, April 26, is fully sanctioned by the Australian Baseball Federation.

Nine teams will compete in this year’s tournament, with the sides split into two divisions which will both play off for medallions.

This year’s competing teams include the Adelaide Aces, Adelaide L’aces, Northern Aces Blue and Grey all from Adelaide, while Alfredton will represent Ballarat for the first time and Diamond Dogs return from Melbourne.

Local team ‘Misfits’ comprises a mixture of local players, while the Legends will field two teams, Blue and Gold.

Northern Aces Blue, Alberton, Misfits and Legends Blue make up Division 1 while the Adelaide Aces, Adelaide L’aces, a women’s team, Legends Gold, Northern Aces Grey and Diamond Dogs comprise Division 2.

Two games will be played Friday night under lights at Blue Lake Sports Park baseball diamonds, with Legends Blue playing Alfredton at 6pm, while Legends Gold are drawn against Diamond Dogs.

The Mount Gambier Softball Association has kindly agreed for the Legends to use their Diamond 2 again over the weekend, which will bring all games into closer proximity to each other.

Games commence at 8am on Saturday morning, with the final round-robin games commencing Sunday also at 8am and medallion games starting at 10am. The Division 1 gold medal game is scheduled to start at 1.30 pm.

Full catering and bar facilities are available at the baseball clubrooms all weekend.
