Dear Southern Stars Baseball Club member,
Welcome to the start of our 25th year
Our sign-on dates are about to be released with come and try days included
We hope you will see our flyers, signage and school newsletter ads throughout the next few months as we prepare for our new season
With a spring fair near the beginning of our season and other activities planned during the season to celebrate our 25th year we are looking forward to welcoming you back
With our advertising being our biggest yet we hope to attract many new members as well as seeing many friendly familiar faces.
As you may be aware we have received significant funding from local and state government to upgrade our lighting, re-vamp our fields and clubhouse as well as push forward with some new training gear as well, we thank Mr. Cameron Dick our State Member for his ongoing support
Our association with local business and Bunnings Browns Plains will see us able to continue our fundraising activities during the year as we attempt to not only give our members affordable sporting opportunities but manage our ever increasing costs.
Baseball Australia is yet to release their fee structure but our State body B.Q.I. has stated that they will not be increasing their fee this season, it is hoped that after successfully trialling our fee structure last season we can keep any increase to a minimum.

JUNIORS & SENIORS NEWS

Out of the ballpark and into the Stars!

This season has seen considerable growth for the Southern Stars and a few firsts for the club.

We started out with our Ladies team who went undefeated into the Grand Final but unfortunately could not secure the win, the Redcliffe Padres won the grand final in a great game played by all. Congratulations to the winners of the Janelle Dunsdon plaque Padres Red, second placed Southern Stars, third - Padres White, fourth West Bulldogs. Most of these ladies then participated in the inaugural Women's Open State Tiltles. Unfortunately the 2nd day of games were washed out. The Brisbane West Region entered 3 teams into the competition, Brisbane North, Far North Queensland, Gold Coast, and Metro all had teams competing.

Our Masters teams also had a first with 3 teams entered into the GBL South competition another first for any club in Qld. Our teams have had a great season with our Black team vying for a place in the finals of this event.

We also started the season with 4 senior teams, another first for the club, 2 division 4 a division 5 and 6 team.

Under 10 - Coach Nathan Ricketts has so much priase for his junior team with their ability each week improving looking forward to watching the players over the coming seasons.

WE cannot thank enough our volunteer coach's, scorers, managers and umpires who each week give their valuable time to ensure our teams are ready to take the field.
