Welcome to the new Baseball Tasmania website!

A comment....

When one decides to participate in any sport and/or its administration, there is a commitment of time and cost and a duty to behave appropriately, no matter what the level. I enjoy seeing our game prosper but I am tired of devoting all my time and effort and not having the support of others. This support can be simply fufilling your financial obligations, supporting your team mates appropriately, obeying simple requests, keeping promises, volunteering to help out once in a while rather than leaving it all to the same few people. If this is unacceptable, then maybe I am not the right person to be in this position.

I shall add a bit here following some complimentary comments placed on the Facebook post:

"Just to clarify something here, whilst I appreciate the accolades, my post was never about that.....nor is being president. I am in the job with the aim of trying to re-establish baseball to the participation levels of when Jamie McIntyre (who posted a comment) was playing in his junior years. To introduce to juniors and young adults alike, the game of baseball. To put forward a fun, exciting alternative to the sports where all the power, money and bias is. Circumstances mean I do have more time than most to do baseball stuff...and I wouldn't change that for the moment....but it is the issues I have mentioned above which frustrate and risk me becoming very disillusioned with the whole thing."

Popstar's stolen motor bike

At 4.30 this morning, Jared's (Popstar) motor bike was stolen from his house in Glenorchy. The culprits almost ran him down in their getaway vehicle, which may have subsequently been torched. We all know how wonderful and dedicated to baseball, softball and t-ball, Jared is....please help him retrieve his only means of transport. David (29/1/2016)

Wow!!!!....what an effort....Sunday's BBQ ruled!!

Ok...the final count has been done...and I am excited to announce that the hard work put in by the team at the Masters' fundraising BBQ last Sunday was duly rewarded....we made a net profit of $1407.85!!!! Congratulations to all involved.

David (26/1/2016)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you to Carol & Peter Hubble, Brad Howlett, Karen Wilkie, Steve Millington, Andrew "Sully" Sullivan, Michael Hegarty, Dave Coad, Grant Stump, Dean Chamberlain, Richie Law and Brendan Adams for their work with today's BBQ at Bunnings. Grant deserves special mention as he was not scheduled to help today but he stepped in to fill the breech.

Thank you also to Banjos Glenorchy for supplying the bread, to Robinsons Meat in Glenorchy for the bulk of the sausages and to Fresh Cut of North Hobart for supplying the onions.

Masters Baseball BBQ Sunday 24th January

A reminder that the Masters Baseball teams will be holding a fundraising BBQ at Glenorchy Bunnings tomorrow (24th) from 9 am to 4pm. If you are in the area and feeling peckish, drop in for some expertly cooked sausages or just to say hi!

Help required:

Thanks to Ian Wood from the Hotel Soho Hobart Blue Jays for his assistance in this matter.

David (23/1/2016)

Urgent call out for help. On Sunday we are holding a fund raising BBQ at Bunnings Glenorchy. A large quantity of chopped onions has been purchased but it needs to be kept refrigerated. Does anyone have a large fridge etc in which these onions could be kept till Sunday morning?

Outstanding registration forms

My records indicate that I have not received registration forms from the members listed below. This list DOES NOT mean that payments have not been received from these people, it just means I have no data which I can input onto the Baseball Australia database. Could you please complete a form and give it to me ASAP. I will have forms with me but one can print one from our website by accessing "New member info" on the menu then clicking on "forms". Thank you

Planning ahead

Even though we still have some games to go in this season, it is not too early to start planning for next season. To this end, Baseball Tasmania will have a stall at an Expo for International Students to be held in mid February. Hopefully, we will secure some new players through this.
As you would be aware, we have some 12 & 13 year old's who have been bat boys for our teams. They are keen to play their own baseball so I am asking people to put the word out there for potential players aged 12 to 16. We hope to get some players from the existing t-ball competition but that is still in the planning stages.

David (16/1/2016)

HSBL History made: Banjos Orioles win!!!

In a thrilling encounter to mark the first game in 2016, the Orioles won their first HSBL game yesterday by defeating the Eastern Athletics, 12-8. Fielding perhaps their strongest team for the season, including Jimmy Clout and Stuart Robins, the Orioles jumped out to an early 5-0 lead, Clout driving in two runs. The Athletics stormed back to trail 5-3, to tie it up at 7 apiece after two innings and to actually take an 8-7 lead going into the top of the fourth. The game then changed as Nik Wolf, Robins and Linton Burgess all got on base in front of Clout who proceeded to launch a ball out of the park, the Orioles first grand slam home run and to give them a lead they would not relinguish. Clout starred going 3 from 4 but Robins hit two doubles in his debut for the Orioles and the victory was a team effort. David Wighman took a great outfield catch (and wasn't he excited!!) to inspire his team mates. David (11/1/2016)

Fill-ins for Sunday & rules

At this stage, it looks as though the Northern White Sox will be significantly short of players for their game on Sunday 1pm. If there are any Blue Jays players who are available to play, could you please contact me. Due to the lack of numbers, there will not be a BBQ operating.

Seems an ideal time to remind team managers regarding the rules for fill-ins. 

  • fill-ins will initially be sourced from the team which has the bye
  • fill-ins must be placed at the end of the batting order
  • fill-ins cannot catch or pitch unless with prior arrangement between the team managers and umpire

Victorian Masters Carnival payments

Could all those players who have indicated they will be going to Ballarat, particularly the over 35's, please pay some money into the account below within the next fortnight. In order to secure our accommodation in Ballarat, a member has prepaid for it so I am sure you can understand the urgency in reimbursing him.

Membership fees for season 2015/16 (updated 31/12/2015)

A friendly reminder regarding registration fees and players' obligations. Fees for 2015/16 were increased to cover ground rental from the G C C and to donate $5 of each registration to the future of our game, the Batter Up T-ball League. (Southern Softball are making the same donation from their players' memberships.) This fee was decided upon before we had five teams in the league and advised prior to the season commencing. As in past seasons, there were two ways of paying either, a payment in full or a payment per game. Notwithstanding how payments were to be made, there was a compulsory up front payment of $50 per player to ensure they were covered under the ABL insurance. In a payment per game scenario, a player would pay their $50 to get on the field then let's say they had played five games (including their first game) to this point in season. The money owed would be 5 x 15 = $75. (5 x 10 for under 18, unemployed etc). As we bring 2015 to a close, unfortunately there are still players who have either not paid their fees in full or made appropriate payments per game. I would hope that this can be rectified before our first round of games in 2016.

David (31/12/2015)

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Over the next few days, I shall be sending team managers a list of the registration payments and games played for each of their players. I will be including details of those players from whom I have not received a registration form as I cannot update the Australian Baseball database without this information. 
Baseball Tasmania has one of the cheapest membership fees of any sport and is very generous in allowing payment of same. Accordingly, it is not unreasonable to expect players to have paid their full membership or to at least have a payment plan in place, by a certain date in the season. As has been advised since the beginning of the season, this "date" is Thursday 17th December.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

...and the winner of the fees refund is......Grant Stump from the Eastern Athletics! 

David (6/12/2015)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just a reminder that to be eligible to go into the draw for one member to have all their fees refund, full fees must be paid by midnight on 30th November 2015.

This is a list of the members from whom we have received full fees.

David Wightman; Grant Stump; Jacob Stump; John Langenberg; Steve Harris; Michael Hegarty; Matt Drumm; Jesse Warburg; Nik Wolf; Rod Saxby; Chris Morrison; Zac Shutt; Richard Benoit; Hamish Maitland; Ian Wood; Kay Hong; Roly Trustum; David Humphries; Mathew Fox; Ryan Oakley; Josh Byrne; Andrew Sullivan; Paul McIntyre; Jared Rush

David (4/12/2015)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As I did not notify members this last week, the cutoff date to be eligible to go into the draw for one member to receive a full refund of his or her fees, has been extended from 22nd to 30th November. I will put up a list of those members who have paid their full fees, thus far, onto our website as soon as possible.

David (21/11/2015)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With the 2015/16 HSBL season commencing next Sunday, I would like to again highlight the fees listed below and the conditions associated with payment of same. To protect each player, it is extremely important that each player competing on Sunday has paid $50 of their membership fee to cover them for insurance. To assist with this, I will be emailing each team manager a list of their squad members along with an indication of those members who have made payments.  It is the manager's responsibility to ensure that fees are paid, particularly the initial $50. If players have not paid the $50 before their first game, in the interest of their coverage, we will consider barring them from playing until such time as payment is made.

David (9/11/2015)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the first committee meeting for season 2015/16, the committee decided that there would be a slight increase in fees for the upcoming season. The fees will be as follows:

Adults:                                                      $195

Under 18/full time students/unemployed       $140

Like most sports, injuries can occur in baseball so it is important that each player is covered by insurance BEFORE competing in their first game. To this end, $50 (non-refundable) of the above fees MUST be paid BEFORE playing in your first game. This $50 not only covers insurance under the Australian Baseball Federation (ABF) but also registers you as a member of the ABF for the season. 

Other matters relating to fees:

  • payments will still be accepted per game and will be $15 per adults and $10 for under 18 etc. Once again, regardless of whether one is paying per game or in full, $50 will need to be paid upfront. Ideally, it would help if members notified managers and/or me of how they intend to pay their fees prior to the season commencing.
  • if full payment of fees are made by 22nd November, the members will go into a draw to have their total fees refunded to them. Past winners of this have been Jason Featherstone (Dragons) and Dave Brooks (Northern White Sox)
  • Unless paying per game or with an alternative arrangement, full fees must be paid by the LAST ROSTER GAME IN 2015. This is a very generous payment arrangement as most other sports would require full payment before playing your first game. Failure to pay or to have an arrangement in place will mean those players will be ineligible to play in 2016 until such time as payment etc is made. We appreciate that some players may have financial restraints so, as with last season, alternative arrangements can be made with your respective team managers or with me. 
  • To be eligible to play in the finals, full fees must have been paid, including those players paying per game or on alternative arrangements, by the final roster match of the 2015/16 season.

Congratulations Terese

On behalf of Baseball Tasmania, I would like to congratulate Terese Millhouse of the Northern White Sox on winning this year's Family Carer Award for Tasmania. Below is information read out at yesterday's award ceremony.

TERESE MILLHOUSE NAMED AS 
FAMILY CARER CATEGORY WINNER FOR TASMANIA
Terese Millhouse has been selected as the state winner in the Family Carer category. 
Terese is finding news way to slow down and experience life with her five year old daughter 
Eleanor now that their life has changed beyond what she could have imagined.
She will always remember the laughter and love and great times she shared with her 
husband, Iraq War veteran Matt Millhouse.
At just 36 years of age, Matt passed away on August 28 2015 after a short battle with rapid, 
younger-onset dementia. Terese and husband Matt had been together for 12 years. 
They were both incredibly brave. When Matt had been deployed to Iraq with the Australian 
Defence Force, fulfilling his career responsibilities, Terese formed an unbreakable bond with 
a group of other wives and partners. Within the group, Terese was the rock. She was 
described as being “like the big sister with the words of wisdom and comfort she provided, 
even while she was going through the same emotions”.
Moving to Tasmania after Matt’s second tour of duty in Iraq, Terese and Matt looked to new 
horizons and a return to their home state and to being around their families. They married in 
Hobart and in 2010 their daughter was born.
Shortly after, and with little warning, their lives changed again when in 2013 Trooper 
Millhouse was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, and later with 
early onset dementia and Alzheimer's. 
Terese resigned from her full time employment and became Matt’s carer, staying strong by 
his side, encouraging, helping and loving him, while also caring for their daughter. Her focus 
was on ensuring he was comfortable and surrounded by love and happiness and also getting 
everything he needed.
Together they made a commitment to focus on raising awareness of his illness to help with 
education and research efforts. 
They participated in various media interviews and Terese has participated in major 
community events including Kayaking from Kingston to Sandy Bay to raise awareness. 
Terese says she will continue to share Matt’s story on a national scale. She says her major 
goals are to raise awareness of PTSD, depression, traumatic brain injury, dementia, and the 
need for more accommodation for young people living with serious illness or disability.

2015/16 Regular Season Roster

Please find below a link to the 2015/16 regular season roster. The format of the finals will be determined by the committee at a later date.

David

 

2015/16 regular season

Player availability

Just a reminder to players; it helps your team immensely if you can advise your manager of your availability to play....well in advance of the game. I appreciate there are unavoidable last minute reasons to be unavailable but all players have access to a roster and in the majority of cases, would know of their availability in advance. It should not be left to the manager to constantly run after players to check on their availability.

Early notification means your manager can reach out to the manager of the team which has the bye in that week to see if anyone from his or her team is interested in filling in.

Fill-ins:

Fill-ins should initially be sourced from the team which has the bye for that week. If no-one is available then alternatives can be looked at.

Rules regarding fill-ins: (from previous seasons)

  • Fill-ins must be placed last in the batting order to ensure that regular team members have the best game opportunities
  • Fill-ins cannot pitch or catch unless with prior arrangement between the competing team managers

HSBL invite to women participants

During my wanders around Hobart, several women have expressed interest about playing baseball. Our league is open to both men and women and I would encourage any women who may wish to pursue that interest, to attend the "Come and Try" days to be held ove the next four Sundays. All sessions will be held at Prince of Wales Bay Recreation Ground, Gepp Parade Goodwood, commencing at 10.30 am

David (10/10/2015)

Upfront payment

Players are reminded that it is a requirement, and has been for many seasons, that a non refundable amount of $50 be paid BEFORE playing your first game of baseball. This $50 pays for your registration with Australian Baseball Federation (ABF) and your insurance. I will be at the pre-season games to take payments and registrations.

David (28/10/2015)

2015/16 Match Committee

At the conclusion of last season it was suggested that we establish a match committee to review our playing conditions with the aim of making them clearer and more relevant to our competition. I am happy to announce that the following have volunteered to form this committee: Dave Edwards; Steve Harris; Jesse Warburg; David Brooks and Matt Drumm.

The committee will also convene during the season to resolve any non umpiring decision disputes that arise during our games.

David 21/6/2015

Scorers required

One of the success stories of the 2014/15 season was the Presentation Night held in March. This night, and the awards presented thereon, would not have happened without the statistics obtained from the scoring of our games by Jared Rush and Norm Johns. There is a strong chance Norm will not be scoring in the 2015/16 season so I am inviting expressions of interest from not only members but also supporters to learn how to score and thus spread the load of scoring our games. Peter Hubble has volunteered his services to teach people how to score.

David 22/6/2015

Breaking news

Following on from tonight's general committee meeting, I am happy to announce some exciting news about the upcoming 2015/16 HSBL season. 

  • On the weekend commencing 31st October, a team from the Wollongong Pirates (NSW) will play a series of games against teams representing the HSBL. Other activities will be planned for the weekend so stay tuned for further details. Thanks to Chris Chalker for organising this. 
  • The 2015/16 season will be played over 15 rounds with a preseason lightning competition to allow new players to find their feet and to determine final teams for the season proper. This preseason competition will be held in conjunction with open days which will be scheduled for earlier in October, further details to be provided shortly.

How far have we come you may ask?....well....2014/15 saw:
