THE ASH ANDERSON CUP

Each year, this memorial trophy is awarded to the winning teams in all Futures League age groups and competitions. It honours former Queensland player Ash Anderson, who tragically passed away in a car accident in 2021.

Ash was involved in the Baseball Queensland Performance Pathway Programs and was a member of Surfers Paradise and Beenleigh Hawks Baseball Clubs throughout his junior playing career.

Following a successful QLD Showcase event, Ash was selected in the 2021 U18 QLD Team and went on to be selected in the U18 National Training Squad.

Ash, you are always with us out here on the baseball field.

Futures League is a term three development opportunity designed to nurture emerging talent across various age groups, from 12 to 30 years old.

Beyond players, the program also offers significant development opportunities for coaches, officials, and scorers, creating an inclusive ecosystem that benefits all aspects of the game.
