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 as at today's date. Please note, all EFT payments are not available at this stage.

David (30/11/2015)


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 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.

David (19/11/2015)


On behalf of Baseball Tasmania, I would like to extend our sincere condolences to Peter & Ian Hubble and their families on the passing of their father. John Hubble has been an integral part of the baseball scene, both here and in Victoria, for over half a century and was an avid supporter of our Masters' teams that competed in Ballarat....he will be greatly missed.

Hobart Summer Baseball League 2015/16 Round 1

A sunny day greeted the players and spectators for the opening round of the 2015/16 HSBL season at Prince of Wales Bay Recreation Ground today.

The Eastern Athletics took on the very powerful batting line-up of the Dragons and were soon in a hole, trailing 12-1 after three innings. Kay Hong, Michael Blake and Shane Davies provided the power with solo home runs and things looked decidedly bleak for the Athletics. A seven run fifth innings by the Athletics, highlighted by a two run home run by Aaron Mann, saw them draw closer but they were unable to make any further significant inroads into the lead and fell 15-9. Hong starred for the Dragons with two hits from three at bats whilst Chris Morrison had the same stats for the Athletics. 

In the afternoon game, the reigning premiers, the Northern White Sox, took on the Hotel Soho Hobart Blue Jays and jumped out to an early lead 4-0. Poor defence didn't help the Sox' cause thereafter and the Blue Jays had soon erased that deficit to lead 7-4 after just one innings. Poor defence and an inability to drive home base runners in scoring position continued to plague the Sox as the Blue Jays powered away to a 15-7 victory. For the winners, Steve Harris went two for three and Roly Trustum went two for two. Chris Cooper, Matt Drumm, Matt Fox, David Humphries and Grant Stump all got two hits for the Sox.

Thanks to Chris Chalker for umpiring both games behind the plate, to Shane Bromfield and Chris Morrison for base umpiring, to Jared Rush for scoring both games and to Naomi Searle for her photography.

The Orioles fly in......

History was made at Prince of Wales Bay Recreation Ground tonight when the new team, the Orioles, played their first game in the HSBL against the Hotel Soho Hobart Blue Jays. The enthusiastic group of players may not have won the game but who cared, they were out there enjoying themselves and learning, not only from their manager Chris Chalker and his assistants, Jamie McIntyre, Shane Bromfield, Linton Burgess and Jason Featherstone but also many of the Blue Jays' players who were only too willing to pass on their knowledge to the first year players. Thanks to Grant Stump for umpiring. Good luck to the Orioles in their inaugural season.

The Orioles' squad for 2015/16 is: Chris Chalker (manager); Jamie McIntyre; Shane Bromfield; Linton Burgess; Jason Featherstone; Jared "Popstar" Rush; Tim Artis; Josh Cockshutt; Zac Daniels; Andrew "AK" Kennedy; Beau McNeill; Stuart Robins; Rod Saxby; Tim Vorwerk; David Wightman; Nick Wolfe.

Late withdrawal: Jack Hale has had to withdraw due to running commitments but wonderful replacements have been found in Matt & Cassie from TV's "House Rules". David (28/10/2015) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The teams that will compete in the inaugural HSBL Celebrity Baseball Game. When: Sunday November 1st 2015 Where: Prince of Wales Bay Recreation Ground, Gepp Parade Goodwood Time: noon. Refreshments, including coffee, available for purchase.

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)

Celebrities and Allstars...what a day!!

Day two of the visit by Wollongong's Northern Pirates began with a light training session during which the celebrities joined us for some practice before their big game. Despite not being available to play due to athletics' commitments, an enthusiastic Jack Hale joined members for a throw before dashing off for his races. Teams sorted, the fun began and in a see-sawing game full of fun and frivolity, the score was tied at 14 apiece when time was called. Matt Smith, Josh Bean and a humble Blair Brownless flashed their power hitting whilst Cassie Allan and Jacob Despard dashed around the bases like there was no tomorrow. Young Connor Pearcey showed skill that would have been the envy of men twice his age and a lot of fun was had by all, well except for Mayor Kristie Johnston who had to withdraw from the game with a serious injury. Thanks to Al Michaelis for umpiring the match and to Sully and Chris Chalker for organising it. Thanks to all the participants who played the game in great spirit and thanks to Fish Focus Consulting for sponsoring the tops which the celebrities were able to keep. In the afternoon game, the Northern Pirates took on the HSBL Allstars and pitcher Brenden Lower humbled the Allstars bats as his team recorded a convincing 16-3 victory. For the visitors, Jesse Lynch went 4 for 5 with two home runs, Kyle Dutton went 4 for 5, Trav Dutton 4 for 4 and Al Michealis went 3 for 5. Tim Holland, filling in for the Pirates also hit a home run and his third home run in two days shows he will be a nightmare for opposing pitchers in the HSBL this season. For the home team, only Chris Chalker had more than one hit with two. Thanks to Dave Coad and Grant Stump for umpiring. So ended a fabulous weekend and on behalf of Baseball Tasmania, I would like to thank Al Michaelis and his Pirates squad for visiting. This weekend would not have happened with the hard work of Sully and Chris Chalker to get it off the ground in the first place and to the dedicated and long work by Zac Shutt, Chris Morrison, John Langenberg and Josh Byrne who was our MC for the final day. Thanks also go to Naomi Searle, our photographer, who took hundreds of photos, some of which I will hopefully post in the not too distant future. Thank you to all those people who turned up to watch, the stands were filled and it looked great! David (1/11/2015)

Celebrity and Allstars' Games

Roll up, roll up....today is the biggest day on the HSBL calendar as Chalky's Angels take on Sully's Saints in the inaugural Celebrity Game at noon....oh and there is a small matter of the HSBL Allstars against the Northern Pirates at 2pm! Let's see how good hat trick hero Josh Bean (ABC) (he was on the radio talking about it AGAIN this morning!!!) is at baseball!! I have it on good authority that photos and autographs will be available! Prior to all this, there will be a training session for new and old players at 10 am approx.

David (1/11/2015)

Weekend fun with Northern Pirates Day 1

A sunny day greeted the Northern Pirates for their first two games against composite sides from the HSBL. The first game between the Pirates and a combined Dragons/White Sox team proved to be a high scoring and very entertaining game with the combined side prevailing 13-8. For the Dragons, Shane Stanfield hit a solo home run and Jesse Lynch a three run shot whilst for the combined side, Shane Davies hit a two run shot, closely followed by a Grand Slam by Matt Cashman. Thanks to Norm Nicholson and Grant Stump for umpiring. Game two proved to be more of a one sided affair with the Pirates prevailing over the combined Blue Jays/Athletics team. Brendan Lower hit a home run and Tim Holland two, for the Pirates but one of the highlights of the afternoon came for Lachlan Crawley who hit his first home run EVER!! He was so excited that no sooner had he left the field than he was on the phone to friends and family in NSW to tell them the great news! Connor Pearcey (10yrs), who had been acting as bat boy for the Pirates, was invited to field and bat for them. He will remember the experience this day for a long time as his first safe hit was off Allstars' pitcher, Brendan Adams!! Pirates skipper and president, Al Michaelis was controversially sent off by umpire Chalker for disputing the finishing time of the game. Thanks to Chris Chalker and Chris Morrison for umpiring. Thanks to Sully, Zac Shutt, Chris Morrison, Dean Chamberlain and Chris Pearcey for their hard work on the BBQ and to Naomi Searle for her photography.

Preparing for the Pirates

Taking a stand (or three). Thank you very much to Glenorchy Lord Mayor Kristie Johnston and GCC General Manager, Peter Brooks, for granting us approval to use the stands. Thanks also to Glenn Sheppard, Roly Curley and those GCC workers who transported and placed the stands. David (27/10/2015)

Preliminary team squads for season 2015/16

With the success of last season and the arrival of new players, the Baseball Tasmania committee has decided to introduce a fifth team to the league for the 2015/16 season.

The teams listed below will be trialed during the pre-season which commences on Wednesday but it is important for members to understand that teams may be adjusted prior to the commencement of the season proper at the discretion of the committee to maintain a competitive league and to balance talent across the five teams.

The fifth team has been introduced not only because of the influx of new players but also to reduce the numbers in each team. This reduction in numbers means more game time for players and makes things easier for the managers.

The listed teams are based on those players who have attended training sessions and/or who have indicated to their team managers that they will be playing in season 2015/16. The new players have been allocated to their teams based on their team needs or numbers. If you played last season and are interested in playing this season but do not see your name listed below, it is important that you contact your team manager as soon as possible.

Welcome to the Orioles who will be managed by Chris Chalker.

In a perfect world, one would hope that we would get constant numbers for teams each week, however, sometimes this does not happen. As in the past, if a team is struggling for numbers, they can call on members of other teams to fill in. With the fifth team this season, they are your first port of call with regards to fill-ins.

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

Season 2015/16 updates (updated 19/10)

The 2015/16 HSBL season roster will be posted following tomorrow's committee meeting. At this stage, the season proper will commence on Sunday 15th November but for the first time, we will be holding a short pre-season competition which will commence on Wednesday 28th October. Those new players who have attended previous tryouts and training will be allocated to teams at tomorrow's meeting. New players attending subsequent tryouts or contacting us will be allocated as per each team's needs and numbers. NB the pre-season competition is designed to help get the balance right with regards allocating new players. Accordingly, it is POSSIBLE the team allocations may change following the pre-season. Could all players who participated last season, please contact their relevant team manager (if you have not already done so) to advise whether or not they will be playing this season. Thank you

David (19/10/2015)


Whilst the 2014/15 HSBL season has not long finished, tomorrow night sees the first committee meeting to begin planning for the 2015/16 season. The committee will have its own items to discuss at meetings but if any members or interested parties would like any matters raised, please don't hesitate to contact me either via private message on our Facebook site, the website or on 0468 927 363.

David 25/5/2015

(I will be providing regular upates under this heading as they come to hand)

Thank you very much to those members who were able to attend the first season 2015/16 committee meeting last Tuesday. A number of matters were discussed, not the least of which was the formation of a match committee to review our playing conditions and to handle any matters arising from within the games. Further information regarding this and other matters will be posted shortly.

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.

David 29/7/2015

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

Sponsorship 2015/16

Season 2014/15 saw the first team sponsorship in league history; sponsors for our Masters teams and generous donations from individuals and Tas Keno. 
In past seasons, the league has been primarily financed by membership fees but as we head into a new era of baseball in Hobart, any sponsorship or donations, no matter how small, are welcomed to aid our expansion.

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

  • the league firmly re-established at Prince of Wales Bay Recreation Ground
  • the introduction of a designated optional training night
  • all teams wore professional styled uniforms
  • all games were scored and as a result, the league held its first Presentation Evening which was a huge success
  • increased exposure through print media and Facebook and the establishment of a new website which was easy to negotiate and kept up to date with regular information
  • an over 35 years Masters team compete in the annual Victorian Masters Baseball Carnival
  • for the first time, the over 45 years Masters team won the Grand Final of their division in the above carnival
  • the first ever team sponsor in the form of Hotel Soho
  • Kennedy Bros Painting, Bennetto Finance and Haymes Paints Ballarat generously sponsoring the Masters' teams
  • Sinclair's Health and Fitness establishing itself as the main provider of baseball gear in Hobart, offering Baseball Tasmania members a discount on gear purchased through them

What's in the future?

  • with the success of the Masters' teams, enthusiasm amongst existing and past players to participate next year is high and through that, we envisage that the number of participants in our game would grow to enable the league to expand to more teams
  • the establishment of a match committee to update the current playing conditions to make them more relevant to our league
  • improvement of facilities for spectators
  • matches against interstate teams
  • increased exposure through the media, particularly TV
  • the formation of a t-ball competition (see below) and promotional activities at Hobart high schools

My daughter, Naomi, has prepared a sponsorship portfolio for different levels of sponsorship and this is available from me upon request. 

Baseball Tasmania is also involved in a joint venture with Southern Softball to form the Batter Up T-ball league. The future of both sports lies in our youth therefore any financial assistance with the t-ball would also be greatly appreciated.

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.

I am pleased to announce that today we reached 200 likes on our Facebook page. On behalf of Baseball Tasmania, I would like to thank all those people who have "liked" our page because it is through your interest that we are able to spread the word, not only about baseball but also softball and the new t-ball league.
