Welcome from the CEO – Lachlan Dale
I’d like to personally welcome the WA baseball community, including our clubs, members, volunteers, and commercial partners of the game to the 2021/22 season.
It's been a busy off-season planning, restructuring, and preparing for a big year ahead and we look forward to sharing more memories on and off the field throughout the season.
Whilst there continues to be a level of uncertainty with COVID-19 around Australia, we are really excited for the full schedule of competitions, development, and high-performance programs this summer so we can all enjoy our beloved baseball.
We look forward to hearing and sharing stories of the season with you and providing regular updates on the latest in baseball both locally and nationally. We want to make it easy to follow your favourite players and clubs this season as we celebrate great achievements at all levels.
Best of luck, have fun, and welcome again to the 2021/22 season.

WA baseball fans have plenty of opportunities to catch their favourite Alcohol. Think Again Perth Heat players in action at suburban ball grounds with the resumption of the WA State League.
A total of 25 current Heat and Heat Futures players are set to suit up for their respective club ball teams in preparation for the 2021-22 Australian Baseball League season, with Braves Baseball Club leading the way with six Heaters in their ranks.
Among them is Heat captain Tim Kennelly, who said club ball was as important a part of his ABL preparation as anything else in his pre-season regime.
"It gives you a chance to get your body right, see some nice pitching and get used to the speed of the game again," he said.
"It's also good to give back to grassroots clubs who get you to the ABL. I've played with the Braves since I started playing baseball so it's important to get down there among all the guys as well as prep for the season."
The Morley Eagles, who are now coached by Heat legend Luke Hughes, will boast five Heat players when Alex Hall and Ulrich Bojarski return from the USA, Swan Districts four players, Wanneroo and Wembley two, and Gosnells and Carine one each.
Meanwhile, South Perth will have four players including young gun pitcher Will Sherriff, who registered his first save for the club in Cubs' 2-1 win over the Braves in the first weekend of the season on Sunday, October 3.
"Obviously it's great prep for the season ahead, especially for those who have a Heat season as well," the Arizona Diamondbacks prospect said.
"The first game of a new season is always a rough one for everyone, getting used to game again, but it's great prep for the ABL.
"It's also especially important for myself and other pitchers to get our arms ready again for the year."
