On behalf of the CEO of Baseball Queensland Paul Gonzalez and the entire board, we would like to wish everyone involved with the U16 and U18 teams best of luck in the upcoming 2019 Australian Youth Championships.

We would like to thank all the coaches for their hard work. U16 team manager David Badke, along with coaches Dan Wilson and Scott McClelland and EO Keith Land and the U18 staff consisting of manager Gareth Jones and coaches Ken McDonald and Scott Porter and EO Karina Connors have all put in great effort and will continue to help get the best out of the boys.

However, it’s not just the coaches who give their time and effort, we would also like to thank all the support staff, from the scorekeepers to the umpires, who do all they can to help our boys be the best they can be.

Last but not least, we would like to thank all the parents who have taken their time to drive the kids all over for training and games, and support them in many ways. We are grateful for all that you have done and will continue to do.

It has the makings of a great tournament, and the U16 and U18 teams are primed to represent Queensland proudly.

Building a better future for baseball.
