Brennan wins $500 for club!

A big thank you to one of our junior parents Linda Brennan who entered a competition on the 5AA website to win a community sporting group $500.

Homestart are the group giving the prize.

Linda wrote and said how she had 5 sons, 3 that play baseball for Sturt and 2 that play teeball.

Linda wrote that our shed was burnt down and alot of equipment was lost.

Graham Cornes announced over the radio last week that the Club had won $500 to go toward the equipment in the shed.

5AA will do a story to promote how we use the $500.

The $500 will certainly come in very handy. I will liaise with the Senior Committee to determine how best this money can be used to offset the equipment lost in the shed.

A big thank you to Linda for being so proactive!

Jacko makes shadow for Australian AA side

The Sturt Baseball Club would like to congratulate Jackson Brebner-Russ on being selected as one of 2 shadows for the Australian AA team to play the World Championships in Taiwan in August (He is the fielding shadow and the other lad is the pitching shadow).

This has meant that he has continued to train at the Academy in Queensland for the full 8 weeks returning to Adelaide with the older boys on Saturday at the completion of the programme. All unselected AA boys have been sent home from the Academy some weeks ago. The actual AA team proceed on Sunday to Taiwan to play in the World Championships. While Jacko is not in the team it means he was rated in the top 20 AA players in Australia.

This is an outstanding achievement and on behalf of the Sturt Baseball Club I would like to congratulate Jackson on this outstanding achievement.

Concrete Finisher required

For those of you who have visited the club recently our new shed has been erected to replace the one burnt down by the fire.

We have had tremendous support from many in the club to assist in doing additional work on the shed. Many thanks particularly to David Smith who has done some electrical work for us and to our new Junior Coordinator Dean Franke who has been coordinating a number of projects in the off season with significant assistance from the Bulls.

We are now at the stage of needing to concrete the floor. Peter Duffield has kindly agreed to assist us in coordinating the work. The one trade that we are currently short of is a concrete finisher. If one of our members is a concrete finisher or can source one at a good rate for us please email Phil Robinson or call me on 0417 806 765. We need to get the shed finished in the next few weeks ready for the season.

Thanks again for all the work that has been going on in the off season to improve our club.

Daniel Lee makes Aussie Schoolboys team!

It is with great pleasure I write to advise you that Daniel Lee has been selected in the 2009 Australian Schools Team that will tour North America later this year under the guidance of Head Coach Stuart Hanrahan, assistants Chris Norrie and Brendon Wallace and tour Manager Neil Barrowcliff.

Daniel had a sensational Schoolboys tournament last week where his selection to play for Australia was made. In addition he was chosen as the MVP for the whole tournament, that is he was chosen as the most valuable player for all teams competing. This is outstanding achievement!

Daniel was chosen in the tournament's ALL-STAR team as the 3rd baseman and also in the touring team as the 3rd baseman. The touring team travels to California and Oregon in September for 3 weeks.

On behalf of the Sturt Baseball Club I would like to most sincerely congratulate Daniel on these outstanding achievements of which he should be justifiably proud. Our Club is very proud of your achievements and will follow your progress in the United States in September.
