The new T-Ball season will commence on Saturday 4th November. Show Day is a week later later this year, hence a later start for us. Club Come n Try days will beannounced in due course for all new and returning players. In the meantime, if you have any Q's please contact your club coach or co-ordinator.
A t-ball information session is to be held at Corrie Jones Park, 1 Gepp Parade Derwent Park on Sunday 18th September, commencing at 10am.
After all the hard work by Southern Softball and Baseball Tasmania, the Batter Up T-ball League commences tomorrow at Corrie Jones Park.
8 and under games will be at 9.30 am (suggest arriving around 9.15) whilst the 11 and under will commence at 10.45am (10.30). Good luck to all concerned.
Special thanks to all the hard work of Nigel O'Brien, Evelyn Seabourne, Laurie Newman, Helen McDonald, Fiona Don, Jesse Warburg, Cindy Sun-Ho, and Andrew "Sully" Sullivan, not to mention all those parents and softballers who have pitched in to help.

A reminder that Sinclair's Health and Fitness are giving those participating in the Batter Up T-ball league a 10% discount on t-ball gear. At the moment they have limited supplies of t-ball gear beyond a tee ball set which includes a bat and ball.
The 2014/15 season was the most successful, passionate, and competitive season since baseball's rebirth in Hobart in 2007. Our overriding aim for the new season is to build on that success by attracting more sponsors and new players, reviewing playing conditions to eliminate issues which arose last season and to help ensure the future of our game by establishing a t-ball competition in conjunction with Southern Softball. The committee for the latter is working hard but, as with most sports, needs help on the ground, whether it be in coaching a t-ball team or liaising with schools with which members and/or friends have a connection. If anyone can help in this area, a meeting will be held from 10 am to 11 am on Sunday 26th July at Corrie Jones Park (formerly Softball Park).
Anyone thinking about getting involved with our new T-Ball league as a coach must have a Working With Vulnerable People card. This new legal requirement helps to keep our kids safe. The process at present can take around 6 weeks, so please visit the Tas Justice website for more info and get your form submitted. There will be more news on coaching accreditation to follow in the next few months.

[The NEW Batter Up T-Ball League is coming]
Batter Up T-ball Facebook page (added 13/5/2015)
We want to see baseball thrive in Southern Tasmania, and that means introducing more new players to the game. So, to safeguard the future of baseball in Hobart, we are joining forces with the Southern Tasmanian Softball Association at the grass-roots level…. with the introduction of a new T-Ball roster for kids.
If you are a parent, and keen for your child to play in an organised T-Ball roster this summer, then now is the time to swing into action and make it happen. Why not make a team up of your child’s school friends…. we will provide you with assistance to make that happen.
Progress is being made already, and presently we have received strong interest to form a Clarence club and a Central Hobart club. We are now looking for enthusiastic people to assist in setting up clubs in Lindisfarne, Kingborough, Northern Suburbs or elsewhere.
The new Batter Up T-Ball League will run on a Saturday morning at Softball Park, and will have mixed teams of boys and girls.
Age divisions will be dependent on registrations received, however we anticipate there will be at least 2 x age divisions:
Whilst the games are being played, we will also run a modified Batter Up program to cater for those younger kids who are keen to have a go, so they go on to become our T-Ball players, and baseballers of the future.
If you are interested in becoming involved, contact Nigel.
Ph: 0416 784 297 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You may be aware that representatives from Baseball Tasmania and Southern Softball Tasmania have formed a committee to organise a new t-ball competition. The league will be known as Batter Up T-Ball league and has its own Facebook page under that name. For any further information, please check out the Facebook page or contact me on 0468 927 363.
