The 2023 Australian Intermediate League Championship will be held in Mildura from 19-23 May this year.
The Old Aerodrome Sporting Complex will host the event, which is supported by the Victorian Government through its Significant Sporting Event Program and Mildura Rural City Council, across five days in May.
It will be the fourth time Mildura has hosted the event and fifth national championship since Intermediate League launched in 2018.
Mildura Mayor Liam Wood is looking forward to continuing the long-standing partnership.
“It’s a partnership that has helped raise the profile of baseball in our region, as well as introduce our district to thousands of potential return visitors as we welcome players and teams from across the country each year.”
“I look forward to once again taking in the action and meeting the players when they return in May.”
Sunraysia Baseball League has hosted the Intermediate division for the past couple of years, and it was Western Australia's Wanneroo Giants who took out the Championship in 2022.
Sunraysia Baseball League Secretary Nick Carroll is thrilled to welcome teams and their supporters to the district.
“Along with our partners – Baseball Australia, the Victorian Government, Baseball Victoria, and the Mildura Rural City Council – we look forward to hosting another great tournament as the kids battle it out to represent Australia”.
Baseball Australia chief executive Glenn Williams is looking forward to showcasing baseball in Mildura.
“Showcasing our sport across the country and into the regions is important, and the Old Aerodrome Sporting Complex in Mildura is becoming the Intermediate league home away from home."
“With the support of the Victorian Government and local community, it is becoming a highly-anticipated event on our calendar each year.”
The 2023 championships will head to Livermore, California for the Intermediate League World Series in late July.
