Baseball Queensland is proud to share the news that Ipswich Musketeers Baseball Club has opened a new batting cage facility.
CEO of Baseball Queensland, Mr. Paul Gonzalez, was joined by Hon. Jim Madden MP (representing the Minister for Sport, Mick de Brenni), Ipswich Musketeers President Mr. Jon Campbell and Mr. Andre Teuwsen for the opening of the new facility.
The batting cage features a fully covered indoor facility with two batting bays. Baseball Queensland would like to acknowledge the investment from the Queensland Government of $141,984 that helped secure the facility that now offers the Musketeers a premier training facility.
The facility also has the option of being utilised by the Ipswich Softball Association and potentially local cricket clubs making it a viable contribution to the wider sporting community.
“Baseball Queensland acknowledges the continued support from the Minister of Sport Mick de Brenni. The funds allocated genuinely assist Ipswich Musketeers and aligns with Baseball Queensland’s overall vision of building a better future for baseball” shared Baseball Queensland CEO, Mr. Paul Gonzalez.
The Queensland Government has invested more than $2.6 million to support baseball since 2015. This comes from the government’s holistic approach to encourage Queenslanders to be active regardless of location, age, gender, ability or background.
Congratulations to Ipswich Musketeers on the opening of their new facility.
