Our Senior Presentation for 2020-2021 was held last night in Port Melbourne at The Vincent and signals the end of a season like no other. Many thanks to Stewart Cassel, Daniel Chircop, and Nick Gray, for organising our event, and James Dann for being Master of Ceremonies. The season was a shortened one, with no relegation or promotion on the table, or newly arrived imports. Nevertheless, our players enjoyed a great season, in particular our Masters, who may have had the best success and fun than ever before. Congratulations to all our players who were recognised for their outstanding performance last night have a great winter everyone, and we'll see you next summer! (Particular mention has to go to Kenji Chen who managed to win the MVP in two teams!).
Congratulations to Jason Macdonald for winning the raffle, a generous donation from our Platinum sponsor BMS Steel Cutting Pty Ltd of a Wolves branded fire pit - we don't often do raffles but these funds will support the Twins Little League team who will be traveling soon. Thank you for your support!
Club Person of the Year 2020-2021
It has been that kind of year that had it been a normal year any number of people would be considered for club person of the year. That is the caliber of club members that we are all so lucky to have around us. They are the nuts and bolts of our club and are a very great support to those of us with official positions to know that the day-to-day is covered. Our committee too, each brings to the table their skills, their time, their perspective, and above all else their love for the club. But it wasn't normal year. We built a Hitting Tunnel and we were in the midst of a global pandemic. And despite all of the wonderful members who dig in and constantly put their hand up to help, Ray Baker stands free and clear of the top of the bunch. We cannot but acknowledge his significant personal contribution to our Hitting Tunnel, during not only a global pandemic but during a period where he had significant personal challenges. Thank you Ray, your resilience and leadership are much appreciated!
Congratulations to the following players who have reached significant milestones playing for the Williamstown Baseball Club.
