Play Ball

The baseball season is upon us and the Bellarine Bears based at Wallington Reserve have a big season planned. Building on last year’s success the club has expanded to host 8 teams in the Geelong league, which kicks off for all grades straight after Easter.

The Bears are looking to recruit new players at all skill levels for T-ball, U12, U14 as well as seniors. Cricketers especially can hone their skills in the off season. Haven’t played? No problem – come along for some exercise and great comradery.

A T-ball program aimed at kids aged 4 through 9 runs Sunday mornings from 9:30am. It usually has about 20 kids but always happy to see more. Great numbers for juniors this season too, with 2 under 12 teams as well as the basis for an under 14 squad. Juniors’ train Tuesday nights, 5pm at the Bears ground. Contact or call Matt Connell on 0400 614 444.

The league’s only all women’s team have picked up a number of new players after their inaugural season last year. Meg Fahy will coach on game days and the side will continue to have more success and a lot of fun again this year. With a healthy number of players in the men’s competition the Bears have added a men’s C-grade alongside the women’s team. B-reserve are looking to develop this year under new coach Chris Dunn. A-Reserve, now coached by Wayne Visser will look to emulate last year’s pennant while promoting some of our promising juniors. The quality of the team in A-Reserve will help push the strength in the A-Grade team who have gone close over recent years but are really looking to break a 24 year pennant drought with new coach Lewis Weldon.

Good luck Bears.
