Baseball was first introduced to Australia by American gold miners on the gold fields of Ballarat in the 1850s.
Baseball has a rich history in Australia. In 1857, Americans played first baseball game in Australia at Exhibition Gardens in Melbourne, Victoria. This has encouraged sports enthusiasts in Melbourne to learn more about this sport. In 1879, St Kilda Baseball Club founded with the sole aim to play Georgia Minstrels tour of Melbourne. The sport gained notoriety in Australia when American sporting entrepreneur, Albert G. Spalding organised a baseball tour of Australia in 1888. The first championship held in 1889 between Victoria and South Australia at East Melbourne Cricket Ground. In the next year, The Victorian Baseball League (VBL) was established by Harry Rickards, J.C Williamson, Harry Musgrove, Major Ben Wardill and J.S Milfornd. J.C Williamson was the first President of this League.
At that time, Melbourne, Geelong, Kew, M.C.C, Carlton, Freguson and Mitchell teams were participated in the inaugural season. With the increasing popularity of this game, The Victorian Baseball Union, The Victorian Baseball Council and the Victorian Baseball Association was established in the early 1900s. Thereafter, the Victorian Provincial Baseball League was inaugurated in 1938 to serve, promote and support the regionally based associations in Victoria. In 1987, Crown Land on Merton Street in Atona Meadows was selected as the new State Baseball Softball Centre. The construction was completed in two years, costing $3.9 Million. The Australian Baseball League replaces the Claxton Shield as Premier National Baseball Competition in Australia. Melbourne Monarchs represented the Victoria in the competition and won 2 games as well. Baseball has its own space and value in Victoria and other states of Australia.
Our club focuses on promoting and supporting the love for this sport across Victoria by imparting valuable information about the upcoming events and matches.
