As CEO of Baseball Queensland I would like to take the time to acknowledge the efforts of everyone involved in the 2018 U16’s State Titles. The athletes have performed exceptionally well and I am exceedingly proud of the level of baseball we are building here in Queensland. Thank you to the coaches, umpires, scorers and families for making this tournament so successful. An extended thank you to Redcliffe Padres Baseball Club for hosting the event and proving us with such fantastic facilities to use. Thank you to Moreton Bay Regional Council for supporting Baseball Queensland at the U16’s State Titles. Most of all I would like to say good luck to the teams today as they head into the final round of the tournament; each player’s sportsmanship and passion for the game is so clear on the field and we are all looking forward to what will be a great Gold Medal game this afternoon!
