The Forest Hill Baseball Club also known as the Forest Hill Eagles, was established in 1988 and celebrated its 25 year anniversary in 2013. The Club competes in the Melbourne Winter Baseball League (MWBL) and last season fielded eight senior sides and six junior sides. This season we project to enter six teams in both the senior and junior competitions.
Our home ground and club rooms are located at beautiful Billabong Park in Vermont South. Most of our membership resides in surrounding areas such as Glen Waverley, Wheelers Hill, Blackburn and Scoresby however we do have members travelling from more distant locales such as Rowville, Greensborough and Mount Evelyn.
At Forest Hill Baseball Club we recognize that individuals take up sport for many reasons. From social to competitive, from beginner to advanced, and all the combinations in between we strive to nurture a family friendly environment where all feel welcome.
This approach has fuelled significant growthboth in numbers and to the diversity of our membership. We have players of Aboriginal descent and birth countries of origin from five different continents. Forest Hill is also very pleased to include among its playing group children with special needs.
We are currently seeking partnerships with sponsors in order to help accommodate the growth of our Club, particularly the junior section, with proper equipment, uniforms and access to special training facilities.
Our sponsorship packages are aimed to provide maximum exposure amongst our players, members and families, as well as the greater MWBL community through signage at our grounds and exposure on our website and newsletter.
