In 2007, after a fifteen year hiatus, a baseball competition returned to Hobart under the banner of Baseball Tasmania. The competition continued under this name until the 2013/4 season when the competition was renamed the Hobart Summer Baseball League, with Baseball Tasmania the governing body.
The season runs from mid October through to mid March with a break over the Christmas/New Year period. Games are of an hour and a half duration with the majority played on two of either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, commencing at 6pm. Sunday games are played once a month and for the finals.
Games are played at Prince of Wales Bay Recreation Ground in Derwent Park, though in recent times, they have also been played at Goodwood Primary School and Shoobridge Park in Claremont.
In the 2013/14 season, the competition expanded from four teams to five with the welcome addition of the Dragons' Softball team and saw teams change their names to represent regions of greater Hobart.
No previous experience is required to both play and enjoy the game with the ages of our current members ranging from 16 to 56 years old.
The league is constantly looking for new players and would welcome any winter sports' teams interested in entering a team in the competition.
