La Trobe Baseball Club was founded in 1968 and is a great inclusive club that has a spot for people of all skill levels.
As a winter baseball club, our preseason training kicks off in March, with the season running from April to September. More details on the training page.
Grey baseball pants, red La Trobe baseball playing top, red belt and La Trobe cap. The club can help you get these and the Uniform page gives you an indication of costs.
If you are new to baseball, some loose clothing such as tracksuit pants and T-shirt are fine to start with. The club has some spare fielding gloves that you can borrow while you get a feel for the game.
Turf shoes and moulded cleats are permitted on our new diamond. Metal cleats are not allowed as they can damage the artificial surface.

The season runs from mid April to September. Depending on the grade, there are 15 to 17 scheduled games plus finals. Usually there are no games on the Queen’s Birthday weekend and the lower grades may not have a game scheduled in the middle weekend of school holidays.
