Why join baseball?

Baseball is a fast growing sport in New Zealand with more than 24 clubs now up and running.  Baseball is the elite professional diamond sport globally, run by the World Baseball Softball Confederation, with professional competitions for men and woman across Europe, Asia, Africa, Japan, North, Central and South Americas.  

Baseball is now providing young New Zealanders with a pathway for higher education through solarships and a chance to play baseball professionally.

In NZ where summer sport typically involves an all day experience, baseball in the Wairarapa provides a quick and fast paced game for kids to enjoy during the week (7-9 year olds) and on weekends (both age groups).
