ACT Baseball has undergone one of its busiest registration periods in history after signing up just over two hundred new players for the 2009-2010 season.
The increase in players has been experienced right across the board at both junior and senior levels. As an example, junior T-Ball looks set to double the sides from clubs around Canberra from last years competition.
Increasing numbers have also been felt at the senior level with Division 2 in C Grade also doubling in size from last years numbers.
The influx in new recruits for the upcoming season once again highlights the growth of the sport at grassroots levels.
The growth in participation comes as the ACT Baseball Association bids to join the newly formed Australian Baseball League, and has seen the ACT fielding their first ever women’s representative side.
The future of the sport in our region really does look bright. If Canberra is successful in our bid to join the ABL, we could be set for even more growth next year.
