Baseball WA is pleased to receive a $5,000 grant from the Road Safety Commission for the 2022 Senior Baseball Club Championship.
The tournament, slated for 2 April to 12 April 2022 at Empire Ballpark, will be supported by the Road Safety Event Grant, with a focus on fatigue and raising awareness of safe diving, especially for those covering long distances from regional to metropolitan WA and vice versa.
“We are looking forward to the upcoming Senior Baseball Club Championship, which will bring winning teams across regional WA, State League, and Provincial League together for an open-age, end-of-season championship,“ BWA Participation Manager David Hayes said.
“We want to raise awareness of the warning signs of fatigue amongst our player base, which is typically young males aged up to 35 years plus regional members who travel long distances. Thank you to the Road Safety Commission for the support which will help us spread this valuable message and ensure our baseballers stay safe on and off the field.”
The alcohol-free event will include Road Safety Commission signage, a player pledge, special umpire shirts, and a livestream of the grand final.
Road Safety Event Grants aim to engage the community and promote important road safety messages. Learn more about the Road Safety Commission HERE and follow Baseball WA on Facebook for updates on the 2022 Senior Baseball Club Championship.
