The Melbourne Baseball Club is deeply saddened at the passing of club stalwart Peter Unwin.
Peter passed away peacefully over the weekend after a long battle with illness. Peter, his wife Sue and sons Stephen, Mark and Richard have been heavily involved with the club since the 1980’s. Service will be 9:15 Friday 15th May at Boyd Chapel at Springvale Cemetery.
All the award winners from the 2014/15 Senior Presentation Night held in the Chairmans Lounge at the MCG.
It was a super Grand Final befitting of the final score 8-7. Gallantry is perhaps the word I would use to describe our mighty Dodgers. Yes, Sir, they were courageous, they had backbone and they had fortitude.
As disappointing as it is to lose a GF where we have been undefeated for the entire season, our team can hold their heads up high and be proud of the collective strength as a team of winners where every player had some unbelievable contribution to make. Our coaches, Chris and Darren, can similarly be praised for paving the path along which this team walked. It was nothing short of a brilliant effort.
A memorable come from behind 9-4 win that highlighted our faith in each other and genuine depth in the line-up that a lot of teams don't have. Once again we had tremendous crowd support from many club members as well as Shane's team, Sticks and a lot of the firsts cheering our every out, especially the ones that Skinny caught. Malcolm once again triumphed in the kitchen, and the cold beers flowed until the wee hours of the morning.
Melbourne won all 4 semi finals Friday night and 4 teams will play next friday evening in Grand Finals, 3 of them at Surrey Park. Our junior league team had a comprehensive win over Malvern 11-1 whilst our 2 Little League Major teams won and will play each other for the pennant. Our Little League minor team also won against Blackburn at Malvern. Go Demons. The U16's were washed out on Sunday but have a replay this weekend against Waverley for the right to challenge in the State final.
The firsts have come from behind and squared up the 3 game series against Blackburn, winning 7-6 today and have forced the series into a deciding game Sunday at Surrey Park. Get down and follow them tomorrow, winner goes through to challenge Essendon for the Division 1 title.
Friday 10 April 2015 Olympic Room at the MCG, 7.00pm Pre Dinner Drinks and Canapés, 7.30pm Presentations and Dinner - $80 Per Under 18 and $100 Per Adult for 3 Course Meal & Drinks Package until 11.30pm. Come celebrate the season.
Congratulations to our Masters 38+ team who will play in the Grand Final next Monday night. 2nd March, vs Croydon after defeating Research 8-1, a game which included some excellent hitting and a round the horn triple play! The Division 4 East team will play Blackburn at Blackburn Sunday 2pm. Unfortunately the Thirds and Fourths missed out after losing their cut throat finals last Sunday, the Firsts will need to win both games on Saturday and Sunday to progress after losing a tight one 2-0 to Blackburn on Tuesday night.
Junior League, Little League and U16 State sides enter the finals this weekend. The Litlle League Dodgers and the Junior League team have both gone through the season undefeated which was a terrific effort. The U16 State team have a tougher road as they will have to win from 4th spot, we wish them all well on the weekend. The Junior league team is at Surrey Park Friday along with the Little League Dodgers, LL Angels are at Malvern, while the U16 State team will play at Waverley Sunday morning.
Congratulations to Life Member Terry Keyhoe who turned 70 last Sunday. After asking club coaches for 30 years for a shot on the mound, he finally got his chance, throwing in the first pitch of the DIV 1 game against Preston Feb 15th.
