Did you know Canberra had a baseball team 25 years ago?

Known as the Bushrangers, the team was first set up in Melbourne in 1991 to replace the Melbourne Monarchs, who were expelled from the Australian Baseball League. In 1993, the Bushrangers were relocated to the nation’s capital where they played at GIO Stadium.

Only two seasons after relocating, the club folded due to heavy financial losses and while their reign was short-lived, the Bushrangers left a lasting legacy in Canberra, giving many Canberrans their first glimpse of baseball.

On the 25th anniversary of the Bushrangers, the Canberra Cavalry are hosting a Throwback Thursday during their clash against the Perth Heat on 17 January. Region Media, the Canberra Cavalry and Rolfe Motors are offering you the chance to win a Canberra Bushrangers prize pack, which includes two tickets to the game and a retro Bushrangers jersey and cap.

Five lucky baseball fans will be able to see the Cavalry in action in the must-win clash, dressed in the iconic white and teal pinstripes. To win one of the five available prize packs, answer the following question:

How many games did the Canberra Bushrangers win during their first season in the competition (1993-94 ABL season)?

A. 17
B. 22
C. 12
D. 15

Comment your answer below where all the correct answers will be put into a hat and pulled out on Wednesday 4pm (16 January) and five lucky Cavs fan will be contacted and will receive the special prize packs.
