About Geelong Baseball Association
Welcome to the Geelong Baseball Association (GBA), which conducts one of the premier winter competitions in Victoria Australia.
Established in the 1930s, the GBA offers senior and junior competitions to clubs and teams from metropolitan Geelong, Colac, Werribee, Bacchus Marsh, Lara, Newport and Ballarat. Competition is conducted from early April through to September.
Since the magnificent Waurn Ponds Baseball Centre was opened in 2002, Geelong has attracted a host major baseball events, including Provincial series, international matches, two Japanese training camps, international "Friendship" games, AAA series, Claxton Shield games and Masters series.
Such events are promoted and delivered jointly by the Geelong Baseball Association, the Geelong "Baycats" summer club and tenant clubs - often in conjunction with Baseball Victoria, the state governing body.
Baseball is in a generally very healthy state in the Geelong region, with increasing numbers of our emerging junior stars signing professional contracts or accepting college scholarships in the United States.
With outstanding facilities that are meticulously maintained by the City of Greater Geelong, its proximity to Melbourne and popular tourist destinations, Geelong is ideally placed to host major baseball events, with exciting announcements to be made over coming months.
In consultation with other stakeholders, the Geelong Baseball Association is committed to the development of our great game through maintenance of a competent, progressive administration and the provision of professionally conducted local and affiliated competitions and events at all senior and junior levels.
