Batting Tunnels Approved!

The Sturt Baseball Club is pleased to announce that the proposal for indoor batting tunnels at Norman Reserve have been approved by the Mitcham Council.You can download the plans on the front page of our website, or by clicking here however please not that the file is nearly 5 Mb!

This is a major milestone for our club as it will significantly enhance the level of training facilities and methods of training for our players.

There has been 18 months of hard work put into making this happen and the Club would like to recognise the following people for their efforts.

Access Planning - David Hutchison - David and Access Planning have provided invaluable support to our proposal and we quite simply couldnt have done this without them.

Kym Parker and Darren Noble - Both Sturt Club members and did all the relevant drawings and plans the council required. Thanks to you both.

Phil Robinson - Phil has been a passionate supporter of this Batting Tunnel development for over 2 years since we started this project. He has overseen this project for the Club. His unrelenting desire to see this project succeed has been a major factor in its approval.

The Club would also like to thank the Mitcham Council particularly Mario Russo, David Deere, George Forbes, Allan Golding and Council Members for its help and recognition of such a valuable project to the Mitcham Sporting Community.

The hard work now begins! We are now seeking people that can assist in the area of concreting and electrical for work on building the tunnels. Please contact Tony Catt or Phil Robinson if you can assist in these areas.

The Club has recently met with the Office for Recreation and Sport to seek funding assistance for the project. The deadline for this funding submission is October 16th. Time is of the essence! To help with this submission we are seeking any interested businesses that would look to provide Major Sponsorship for the facility. This project will be of enormous benefit to the many members of our club and will gain media interest closer to completion. We believe it could be an excellent sponsorship proposition for a supportive organisation. If you would, or could refer someone who would be interested in negotiating a sponsorship deal to help get this project up and running please contact Phil Robinson or Tony Catt immediately.

The drawings of the proposed Batting Tunnels can be viewed at the club or on our website.

We look forward to all members providing their support to help turn this project into reality and play a part in what will be remembered as a significant event in the history of the Sturt Baseball Club.

Tony Catt

Congratulations - Paul Mildren

The Willie Duke Award is presented annually to the Carolina Mudcats player who best symbolizes the spirit and dedication to baseball exhibited by Willie Duke. Known as "Mr. Baseball" for his tireless efforts promoting the game, Willie Duke played and managed professional baseball for nearly 20 years. He has been instrumental in organizing, promoting and developing youth baseball programs in the Raleigh area since the 1940s. The winner not only receives a plaque, but will be on the list of past winners in the Mudcats office, joining such players as Jason Kendall, Emil Brown, Juan Pierre, Josh Willingham and Jeremy Hermida.

The recipient of the Willie Duke Award for 2006 is Paul Mildren. Mildren became one of 14 pitchers in Carolina history to win 10 or more games, finishing the season 10-10. He finished 3rd in the Southern League in innings pitched (167 1/3) and third in strikeouts (150). Making all 28 starts during the regular season made Mildren just the third pitcher in club history to make that distinction, joining major leaguers Shawn Chacon and Luke Hudson. Mildren's 167 1/3 innings was the fourth most logged in the 16-year history of the Mudcats.

The Sturt Baseball Club would like to congratulate Paul on his magnificent season.

Winter Baseball
Traditionally baseball is a summer sport. However there are a number of people who love baseball and want to play it all year round! To that end there is a SA Winterball Association which arranges a competition, commencing in May through to the Grand Final in the last week in August.

The objective of Sturt participating in this competition is to provide an opportunity for Sturt players to develop through the winter in an atmosphere less intense than the summer season. Due to the more relaxed atmosphere, players from Under 14 upwards can play!

In 2004 Sturt won the Premiership of the Winterball Association Flinders League defeating Glenelg 6-1

Following our success in the Winter of 2004, Sturt Baseball Club placed two teams into the 2005 Winter competition, one under the Coach Tony Catt and the other team under Coach Chris Small.

Tony Catt's Sturt Team again won the Premiership in 2005 defeating Glenelg 6-4

We are now seeking expressions of interest of all people who would like to play this winter. We have an optional training session once a week at the Seaton High School Batting Tunnels and last season the cost to play was $50 for the season. If you know someone who is keen to play baseball but needs to learn the game, this is the ideal environment. We have had a number of players that have not played the game before.

Please contact Tony Catt or 0412244327 to register your interest.

Under 18
The result of the grand final, an 8-2 loss to Southern District, belied the strength and results of this team over the length of this season. Whilst being the best team during the minor round and winning two finals games comfortably is of note, and should not be underestimated, to miss out at the final step is painful for this group of players, many of whom have been together since under 12's, which is when they last tasted success. Jake started the game on the mound and whilst SD were swinging the bat freely we were containing them and had limited the damage early on. They got away to one run lead in the first and it took some time before we equalised, thanks to a great sacrifice bunt from Tim to bring our first run in. They scored another to make it 2-1. Life was difficult generally on the diamond and especially in the batting box with a number of our higher order batters being hit, including Angus Roeger twice, limiting our ability to swing the bat at key times. We then really struggled with clean hits. SD got away from us in the 7th innings due to some good hitting coupled with some poor execution in the field by us. We were then looking down the barrel. To their credit the team kept trying throughout the game and thanks to a great hit by Tim to left field we scored our second run in the bottom of the ninth with two out. The bats just didn't get any momentum going for the game. Positives for the game were the sustained effort throughout, the teamwork from the whole team, and the great support from all. Special thanks for the tireless Bruce Packer in preparing the diamond for the game. Special thanks also for the great support from the tremendous crowd who turned up to watch the game, the result doesn't diminish the teams appreciation.

This team has a great bond, both on and off the diamond, something that will stand the Sturt Baseball Club in good stead for many years to come as they make their presence felt at Senior level and in their contributions to the club. Whilst it is a team game special mention must be made of :-
• Jake Gibson for winning the SABL U18 MVP Award, announced and presented last Friday night.
• Angus Roeger selected as a state representative in the U16's (and winning the state team MVP) and also Tim Boundy and Paul Holmes being U18 state representatives. These guys have shouldered a heavy work load this season between U18, A grade and State commitments and it is credit to them how well they have handled this.

Finally a "match review" was conducted after the game and whilst we found no answers we all had a bloody good time and relived season highlights including Matt Whitford's triple from the week before - just ask him about it if you've got half an hour to spare! I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
~ Michael Jordan

Under 14 Saints Teal
As disappointed as we are at losing we have to acknowledge that Dodgers were better team on the day. Alex Martens started off the pitching lineup and did a fantastic job to keep the run rate down to 4-2 after 2 innings. Unfortunately we just needed a little luck on the day and things may have been different. Josh Grantham finished off the day as pitcher, he had a fair day on the mound but was under heaps of pressure. Jarrad Pearce played another solid game as catcher and starting batter. Jarrad has been solid and reliable nearly every week. John Hood took a great catch in centre field and generally played one of his best games of the season. Thanks to all the players, it has been a fun and rewarding season. Pleasing to hear that all the players have made a commitment to play again next season. Good luck to those who are going up to 16s. Thanks to all the parents that have been sensational supporters of the team - The most organised group of parents we have come across - and great fun as well.

Under 12 Division 1 Sturt
Lost to a very strong West Torrens side 12-3. Well done boys on a great season!

Division 4
Despite defeating Henley & Grange twice during the regular season by a combined score of 26-7 we were no match for them in the finals on Saturday, going down 13-7. Our guys played hard but we made too many mental and physical mistakes to win this game. Combine that with a genuine bit of bad luck and you get a sense of the game. Bad luck is when Simon Gooley comes in to bat with the bases loaded and 2 out mid way through the game. Gools hits a smash between 1st and 2nd that surely would have brought home 2 runs and kept the rally alive. Unfortunately, he hit the ball so hard our runner at 1st was unable to avoid being hit by the ball for the 3rd out!!

Ben Catterall was the star hitter for us on the day with 3 hits, including 2 home runs. Gools also had a good day with the bat, as well.

So, for the 2nd year in a row we finish 2nd in the minor round only to lose our 2 finals. We're all disappointed as we had a team capable of winning the flag this year, but in the end we were our own worst enemy and probably just a break or two away from reaching the Grand Final.

Under 18
MATT WHITFORD BREAKS OPEN GAME WITH A TRIPLE!
After a fairly lacklustre start to the game Matt Whitford got things moving by belting a stand up triple to right field at the bottom of the second, scoring Sturt's first run. That seemed to wake the boys up and set the tone for the rest of the game. A solid game followed with plenty of bat on ball and whilst nothing quite as spectacular as Matt's hit followed the consistent application, both in offence and defence, showed what a solid unit these boys are. Jake pitched another great game going for seven innings and conceding only one run and then Jared came in to finish the game off. We gave GGCD no chance to get into the game and finished with an 8-1 win. Tim did a great job behind the plate, with some excellent back ups in particular, as well as some great base running. Andy McKinnon had another error free performance on the bench! Ironically this was the first time that we had played GGCD this season as two scheduled games had been cancelled due to hot weather. They left knowing who we are! The team has played very solid and consistent baseball for the last five weeks and now has to continue that for the last game of the season. Thanks for the great support at the game and we look forward to plenty of supporters next week with a home Grand Final. Bring it on!

Under 14 Sturt Blue
Our season came to a sudden halt on Sunday after going down 12-11 to Port Adelaide. We outhit the Magpies 15-9 and came back to level it in the sixth after being 7-2 down in the second. It was a gutsy fight back but we couldn’t sneak over the line in the end. We would have loved another crack at Woodville in the GF but it wasn’t to be. These guys can hold their heads high, they’ve had a fantastic season and played some great baseball.

Hits: Teague, Day, Harnett 3 Brebner-Russ, Nicholas 2 Papps, Tape.

Under 14 Sturt Teal
Were defeated by the Saints in the local derby 12-2.

Under 12 Division 1 Sturt
The Under 12s put in a very solid, upbeat performance against East Torrens to run out 16-8 winners. We need everyone to be contributing if we are to defeat West Torrens next weekend.

Division 1
Our final game for the season turned into a 14-4 mercy rule win over Northern Districts. Although an expected win, it was still pleasing in that the players were still prepared to give it all for the final game even with nothing riding on it. This could have been a danger game with Northern Districts being winless to this stage, as a coach you do not want to be the first team to lose to them. The game was tight for the first 3 innings only being 3-2 at that stage. The game was burst open in the 4th innings with a bunch of back to back hits blowing the scoreline out to 11-2. I took the opportunity of then resting Telmo as he had pitched a lot of innings during the year. This gave Dan Turner the chance for another innings and then Tim Boundy finished off the game for us. Tim has had a lot of innings behind the plate this year and this pitching opportunity gave him the chance to experience it from the other side. Offensively we were very good, with every player picking up at least 1 hit. It has been a very interesting year for me as a 1st year coach at this club. There are some things as a squad we do very well, but at the same time there are other things we do poorly and these need to be rectified for us to take the next step. I firmly believe we should be looking at top 6 next year but to do that we need a few things to go our way. We need to find some pitchers to assist those we have at the moment. Pitching drives the whole game, with solid pitching your defense becomes better meaning you don’t need to score so many runs to win games.

Division 4
We lost a tough game at Woodville 12-10. The good news is we get to play another game this Saturday (at Sturt) against Henley & Grange. Game time is 2:00 and we'd love to have some extra support. The Woodville game looked like a runaway Sturt win as we led 8-0 going into the bottom of the 2nd inning! While you'd expect to win from there they brought on Ian Reval to pitch and while we've had some success against Rev in the past he had the better of us on Saturday. Even though we led 8-0 in the 2nd inning there was some warning bells as we ended the first inning with a KC and the bases loaded. We ended a few other innings in the same way and this is one area we will improve on this week. Another area of concern was the number of key hits Woodville got with a 0 balls 2 strike count on the batter. A key to good pitching is to not get hurt on an 0-2 pitch, so again, this is something we will improve on this Saturday.

Our guys are fired up to play H&G, knowing a win gives us another shot at Woodville the following week. Hope to see you there.

Under 18
The U18's, having finished top played Southern Districts who finished second, in the crazy final six system of finals. What's more the game was at 9.30a.m., a time when the boys have usually only had a few hours sleep from the night before. Fortunately they all kept themselves very neat and tidy and were well prepared for the game. Jake started on the mound and despite them getting an early couple of runs, did another great job throughout the game, pitching for seven and a half innings. Shane relieved to close down the game. The team did consistently well with the bat scoring in six out of the eight innings that we needed to bat. Southern pulled back four runs in the eighth but it was all too late with Sturt winning 12-6. A great all round team effort, and continuing the positive momentum established over the last four weeks. Having finished top and now having beaten the second team you'd think that would put us in to the grand final BUT NO, we now have to play a knockout final against a team that only just won over half their games for the season!

Under 14 Sturt Blue
Sturt got dacked 9-1 by the highly fancied Woodville at Findon. We managed only 3 hits in an ordinary performance – the good news is that the game is history and we now get ahome final against Port, then another crack at Woodville (if they win).
The challenge is there – let’s give it our best shot.
Hits – Renfrey, Tape, Day

Under 14 Sturt Teal
Defeated Glenelg 19-18

Under 14 Saints Teal
Played Dodgers again lost 13 - 12
Well.. what a game... we haven't come close to beating this team all season, but this time the boys had em.. All of the boys have improved out of sight this season.. Josh Grantham started on the mound and put in a great performance followed by Simon Evreniadis who really lifted this week, Alex Martens under great pressure and did great job .Catcher Jarrad Pearce hardly let a ball past him all day. Great Job!! Poor Brodey Blanks missed out on a run when he injured his hand in warm up. Jack Goldsworth 2 great outs at 3rd, John Hood Had an unlucky day at the bat, Josh Masters, Mitch Kosiol, Kane Mattson, Sean Lamond and Josh Clifford all played well.... We were 10 - 7 up for the 4th 5th 6th innings. Coming in to the 7th at 12- 7 we thought we had it won. never mind we have really shaken them up........ Great Hits by Josh, Simon, Jarrad, Sean, Josh C, Josh M.....On to next week's showdown against Peter Hall's team..

Under 12 Division 1 Sturt
Under 12 (1) Sturt Having gone undefeated throughout the regular season is often a worry as you often need the bitter taste of defeat in your mouth to heighten the sweet taste of victory. Last week in our first final against West Torrens we were served up all the sourness we could handle. Thirteen fielding errors and a bunch of mental ones not recorded certainly dealt us with the kick in the pants we needed.
We have a great little side with each and every player capable of individual brilliance however we were shown on the weekend the importance of turning up to play rather than just turning up. We lost 18-3 but I think we will gain greatly from the experience. Jess Lemon was a highlight in the way he was able to make adjustments and focus on the next play. He made an uncharacteristic error in the firstinning but went on to produce three tremendous plays including a fantastic catch and a sharply turned double play. He went 2 for 3 with the bat and had a day out.
Mat Macbeth hit a solid shot late in the game to left field and Jordan Wayne helped slow the tide with a good performance when he came into pitch but overall it was a day not to dwell on. The players now need to look forward to our next game and play to the high standard they have produced throughout the season.

Under 12 Division 1 Saints
Wow , What a year! Unfortunately the boys lost 11 – 10 in a very tight final against Kensington yesterday but they certainly did themselves and the Sturt Baseball club proud !
After being down 7 to nil after the first innings the boys came back hard and were unlucky not to win after leading 10 to 8 with 2 innings to play. They seem to live by the moto of being “down but not out”! The great thing about this group of kids is the endeavor they have shown and their willingness to listen and learn all year.
This was really highlighted by the closeness of yesterday’s game after Kensington “blew us away” earlier in the year. There is absolutely no doubt that this team is the most improved in the league and all the boys should be proud of themselves.
I would like to particularly mention both Sam Osmond and Alex Smith who didn’t get any game time yesterday but gave great support to their teammates from the sidelines! That showed incredible character boys and I am sure your families were as proud of you as I was!

Winter Baseball
Traditionally baseball is a summer sport. However there are a number of people who love baseball and want to play it all year round! To that end there is a SA Winterball Association which arranges a competition, commencing in May through to the Grand Final in the last week in August.

The objective of Sturt participating in this competition is to provide an opportunity for Sturt players to develop through the winter in an atmosphere less intense than the summer season. Due to the more relaxed atmosphere, players from Under 14 upwards can play!

In 2004 Sturt won the Premiership of the Winterball Association Flinders League defeating Glenelg 6-1

Following our success in the Winter of 2004, Sturt Baseball Club placed two teams into the 2005 Winter competition, one under the Coach Tony Catt and the other team under Coach Chris Small.

Tony Catt's Sturt Team again won the Premiership in 2005 defeating Glenelg 6-4

We are now seeking expressions of interest of all people who would like to play this winter. We have an optional training session once a week at the Seaton High School Batting Tunnels and last season the cost to play was $50 for the season. If you know someone who is keen to play baseball but needs to learn the game, this is the ideal environment. We have had a number of players that have not played the game before.

Please contact Tony Catt or 0412244327 to register your interest.

Division 1
In an outstanding game of baseball played in the correct spirit by both teams we came up short in a 5-3 loss against league heavyweights Goodwood. After some major repairs to the ground caused by Friday nights rains we finally got underway about 30 minutes late. Daniel Turner pitched for us and did an outstanding job throwing the whole game and keeping us in it with the help of some tight defence. Daniel has really stepped up recently and taken on a large part of our pitching rotation lately. I would prefer to use him only for 2-3 innings at a time but he is shouldering a great load and coping with the work very well. Defensively apart from a couple of minor hiccups we were outstanding. I am really pleased to see some of the processes we put in place early in the season coming to fruition. The players are now not afraid to dive for catches, they are backing up on every play not just when they remember, I have tried to instill in the players that they will never get in trouble if they go for their catches, the times they will get in trouble is when they hold back and let balls fall in and try to protect their averages. Tim Brewer had a great game in right field taking a couple of fine diving catches. Offensively the hits came from Jared Holland, Paul Holmes and Angus Roeger with 2 each and singles from Tom Brice and Jimmy Passmore. Jared has had a really solid 2nd half of the year, Paul has been really consistent all year and if I had my way Angus would win rookie of the year this year. Tom Brice finished out the year at shortstop, something I hadn’t seen done in over 20 years of A grade baseball, But I made a deal with him if he hit a home run on Saturday night I would play him there and of course first pitch he saw he put out. He had the biggest smile I’ve ever seen rounding 2nd base and when he went to shortstop the first 2 plays both went to him.

Division 3
Played another excellent game only to be rolled in the late innings! After leading 4-2 for much of the match, the Saints lost to Goodwood 7-4. Matt Whitford pithced very well and was well supported in the field.

Division 4
Into the 9th inning it looked as though we had the minor premiership sewn up as we were winning 2-0 against Goodwood. In what was a real good pitchers duel Goodwood scored 2 runs in the 9th to level the score 2-2. In our half of the 9th we had 2 leadoff hits by Mark Colmer and Norm Sluga giving us men on 2nd and 3rd with no outs and to the top of our batting order. It's fair to say in situations like this we'd consider the game over with a win for Sturt, given the strength of the hitters. However, their pitcher knuckled down even more and retired the next 3 batters without conceding a run to keep the game at a 2-2 draw.

Stars for us included Barry Lunnon for an outstanding 9 inning game and Norm Sluga for his 3 hits when, as a team, we had few more than that. Norm also earned us the draw with a head first slide into home on a passed ball. No one else in the league would have scored on that play but Norm, with his hustle and determination, just got home. So, we appear to have finished 2nd on the ladder meaning we play Woodville at Woodville on Saturday. When we win that game it's into the GF! See ya at Woodville!!

Division 5
Even with a badly sprained thumb on his pitching hand, and some words of wisdom from Trev Colmer (go all out it’s the last game), Trev Hendry managed to pitch through the 1st 3 inns and pick up 3 walks for the game. Plus with some great defence and batting saw us pick up 11 runs in the 1st . H&G were consistent in their scoring and slowly got back to tie it up then go ahead by 1 run, meanwhile our scoring was shut down for 4 inns. Until the last with 3 hits and 2 walks we scored the 2 runs needed to come back and win 13 – 12.

Hits- 3 to C. Small, 2 to J. Conner, T. Colmer, and G. Young, and 1 to B. Colyer, and R. Trembath.

Division 6
Firstly i must thank the Sturt baseball club for allowing me to be able to coach a great bunch of guys this year. We were in the hunt all year to make the playoffs, but we just didnt get over the line. But we had fun and we became a very good team. Lately we have had everything in our games and last week was no exception, we played a team who whinged and whined all day long even though they were winning. Guys running down the line towards 1st base with bat in had and running way out of line and hitting the first baseman with the bat and still safe, hey dont figure that one out, its not worth it.

Dave was on the mound all day and did a fantastic job, {and to other senior coaches i have his 5 year contract in my office locked up} so dont bother. We had no runs and time was running out so jaye got a great single down the 3rd base line with 2 outs and there was no way we were going to have a goose egg on the scoreboard at the end of this game so, one must steal bases to get home, stole 2nd easy stole 3rd easy and the whingers got a little up tight for they wanted to shut us out. Tom came up and got jaye home and the goose egg was removed for the day and dave {senior coaches look above again} came up the next inning and did the same. so we finished up with 2 runs!

Again, A BIG thank you to the STURT BASEBALL CLUB FOR ALLOWING ME THIS GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO COACH THIS BUNCH OF GUYS, AND YES I KNOW WE WILL DO MUCH MUCH BETTER NEXT SEASON!!!!!!

ALSO THOSE WHO WOULD BE INTERESTED IN WINTERBALL DIV 6 STURT BASEBALL TEAM PLEASE CONTACT ME AT THE FIRST INSTANCE @0408890019 ALL DIV 6 BOYS DONT FORGET JAYES PLACE MARCH 12TH, 9 FOURTH AVE. BRIDGEWATER 3:00 PM YOU MUST HAVE A GOOD EXCUSE NOT TO COME!

GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE BOYS WHO WILL BE PLAYING WINTER BALL FOR THE BULLS OR THE STURT BASEBALL CLUB ON THEIR WINTER CAMPAIGNS. ALWAYS REMEMBER BASEBALL IS ALWAYS THE WINNER!

Under 18
The U18's played West Torrens away on Sunday, knowing a win will secure top position for the minor round. Jake started on the mound and ended up pitching the whole 9 innings (other than the last batter) and did a superb job, ably supported by all in the field. The game was a very tight one and despite the great job the defence was doing, and the batters getting lots of bat on ball, we just couldn't hit to the gaps. A huge hit to left field in the fourth digs, with two runners on, saw West Torrens score a run, but it would have been two were it not for a great relay from Angus through Jared, and solid work from Tim, to get the out at home plate. At the top of the eighth the persistent batting paid off and we scored two runs, to lead 2-1. Whilst the players and coaches were cool under the pressure the spectators were a bit toey! Having broken the shackles the guys went wild with the bat in the last digs and score another 7 runs to win the game 9-1! Top job Jake and the team takes some good form into the finals.

Under 16 Sturt
Under 16 Sturt We defeated Glenelg 8-6 in another tight match. Everyone played very well and they have clearly demonstrated since Christmas how much improvement has been achieved.

I am very proud of this team and look forward to watching them grow into future A grade players at the Sturt Baseball Club. A particular special mention to Hugh Wirth who caught both Under 16 games on the weekend….well done!

Thanks to all the parents for there support during the year – I have had a great time.

Under 16 Saints
Saints U/16 team were at home to East Torrens in their last chance to make the finals. With a strong opening from Alastair and a shutout close from Toby as well as some strong fielding and batting Saints produced one of their strongest performances yet, finishing the game 12 to 4 up. Alas it was not enough and results elsewhere meant we missed out on that finals berth. Thanks for the season guys. It has been an honour and a pleasure to coach such a fine group of young men. Thanks to all of the parents too, who helped so much with all of the jobs that needed to be done.

Under 14 Sturt Blue
Drew with Glenelg 7all

Under 14 Saints Blue
We played our last game at home for the season and unfortunately we went down 10-3 to East Torrens. We started of with a bang 3 up 3 down and the boys were looking good but East Torrens got a few lucky calls and we fell behind. Brett Mulryan started on the mound and was then relieved by Jayke Wayne and Ben Young. The boys played well for the last game and should be proud the way they finished of the season. Well done to all. I would like to thank all the parents for the support through out the season and to My assistant Coach Glenn Young and Manager Pat Hollis where would Coaches be with out them THANKYOU. Hopefully we will see all the players back next year.

Under 14 Sturt Teal
Defeated Henley and Grange 11-10

Under 14 Saints Teal
Under 14 (2) Saints Teal v Dodgers 10 - 0 loss The boys having been working hard for 3 to 4 weeks knowing that to win a final this is the team to beat.The score is not indicative of the game. We held them of for 4 innings at 1-0 then they scored a grand slam. Jarrad Pearce played a solid game in catcher and Josh Grantham pitched well, however we could not get a hit to save ourselves. Other outstanding performances came from Jack Goldsworthy. We look forward to playing them again this week at Golden Grove. I am sure the boys will have solid hitting practice this week at training.

Under 12 Division 1 Sturt
Defeated Golden Grove comfortably 22-3. In the lead up to finals, the team used 6 pitchers who performed very well. Onto the finals!

Under 12 Division 1 Saints
Saints Defeated Northern Districts 7-4
The boys had a very ordinary day and got away with a win. Highlight of the day was Joel Grantham Home Run over the left field fence. Lets turn it around this week boys as it finals time.

Under 12 Division 2 Sturt
A 10-9 loss to the top team was an excellent effort by the boys. Considering we were 9-5 up going into the last we really had a shot at beating them. All pitchers were brilliant throughout the day but more importantly the whole team batted well and fielded well. I am not disppointed by the loss considering who we played and was extremely encoutaged by the team effort and dedication.

Under 12 Division 2 Saints
22/2 Defeated Sturt 16-5 After a slow start our bats did the talking Matt Franke caught a great game, Fraser and Ryan pitched well Tyler and Josh hit strongly and Alex got his first hit for the year (the smile was well worth it) The rest of the guys did the job to take the Franke - Colmer trophy

26/2 Lost to Woodville 14 -16
A sorry way to finish a successful year With our pitchers struggling to throw strikes we really needed to hit We didnt get a lot to swing at although Tyler and Riley hit well Ryan Kazmer at the back of the plate caught well We fell down a little in the field at crucial times and just cruised to an end to the season
See you all April 2 for the presentation day where we will all celebrate a successful year ! Everyone contributed in some way on the day and they sure should be pleased with themselves after a soul searching week

I would like to reiterate that your committee is working very hard to make sure our clubs teams are placed in the best position for the finals draw.

Make sure you get to all the Sturt teams and support your club during the finals series.

Division 1
What a disappointing result. In an eleven innings game we ended up losing 9-7. The disappointing part is not in the loss but the fact we were 6-0 up after 5 innings. Good teams do not let leads go like that. Paul Mildren started the game for us and totally dominated the Woodville hitters, he pitched until the 5th innings when he reached his pitch count and was then relieved by Daniel Turner, Daniel did a fine job for us but as a team we could not control the Woodville bats that came to life. The lead was slowly pegged back until the end of the 9th when it ended up 6 all. The game when into the extra innings and Woodville came up trumps when required. Unfortunately for us after the 5th innings our bats went dead and their bats came alive. We have to learn to keep grinding out runs, when you get to 6-0 you then need to push harder to make it 7-0 until eventually you bat the other team out of the game. Some of our players had exceptional games with the bat including Daniel Turner with 3 hits and Jared Holland, Paul Holmes and Tom Brice with 2 each. We keep battling away, I don’t think we are getting the results for our efforts but good teams always find a way to win.

Division 3
Div 3 faced an experienced Goodwood outfit but lost 12-4. Peter Turner pitched well and Andrew Mattner hit his first home run for the season (on one leg!).

Division 4
Sturts Div 4 are now top of the table with 1 game left! We beat Henley & Grange on Saturday to be top. This was far from an easy game, however, as we were down 1-0 with 1 out in the 7th inning. It was all Sturt from there with us eventually winning the 9 inning game, 10-2. Stars for Sturt were Scott Crutchley and Jamie Knuckey. Scott pitched, hit, and fielded like a superstar and carried us all on his back, for most of the game. Thank goodness we eventually pitched in to help!! As for Jamie, he hit some screamers right at the H&G fielders but it was his presence at short stop that helped us so much. Jamie is a reluctant leader in many ways but certainly has a great, and positive, influence on our team.

Our last regular season game is at Sturt on Saturday at 3:30. It's a game we really want to win as it's against Goodwood, the team that gave us our first loss for the year when we last met. If we win this game we finish as minor premiers with at least 2 home finals.

Division 5
After a stressful start with only 6 players fronting up and no umpire, thanks to a few very short notice phone calls to Jeff Nicholas and Shaun Mullens and the help from Dave Waltham and Brad Mc Inness from Div 6 we were able to take on 2nd place East Torrens. With a great pitching effort from Trev Colmer who threw 7 of the 8 inns played, and only gave up 3 hits for the game. As Trev did his job on the mound to stop them scoring, the rest of the team did their job with some great defence and batting, in the end winning 9 – 1 .

Hits, C. Small, 3, B. Colyer, S. Mullens, D. Waltham, B. MacBeth, 2, R. Taylor, 1,

Division 6
Div6 had its last home game at sturt on saturday and what a fun game of base ball it was. We had Tom Pledge on the mound for the whole game and what an effort. We played Playford and they are by no means a walk over, they held us for the first innings but in the 2nd the boys produced 16 runs it was good to see the boys get hits, and Big Bad Burner (mark burns that is } went 3 for 3 for the day. Adam Martin made all 3 outs in 1 inning i mean he got out three times in one inning but that is div 6 some times. Well we might play our last game at Adelaide on saturday at 12:30. We will take it to these guys and finish the regular season with a win.

Masters
A baseball god was present at Adelaide on monday night and he was on the side lines with the big cheering crew for Sturt Masters for once. This has not happened this season. The boys were hitting everything thrown to them and fielding everything. Peter Tredrea pitched well and Ritchie Carter was great as catcher. The boys had fun and it was great to get rid of that big goose egg in the standings. We have 1 game left and thats it for the year and we play the Brewers on Monday.

Under 18
U18's fronted against Woodville on Sunday and went into the game with some disruption, with injured and unavailable players, as well as players doubling up for A grade in the following game. It was a truly unique game! Jared caught for the first time in his life and did a good job, although he let one through to the umpire which was then compounded with the umpire being hit by a foul ball - result out of the game and off to hospital for the umpire - he's ok though! Jake started on the mound and Shane finished off the game - both pitched well. Shane, following on from his debut slide last week slid into base on no less than three occasions (the complete baseballer now?). The boys did ok with the bat and came out winners 7-4. They are building some momentum for the finals - this week against West Torrens is a must win game to finish on top for the minor round and to keep that momentum going. Under 16 Sturt The boys lost another heartbreaker to Kensington after looking the better side all day. We lost 4-3. This now means we must beat Glenelg in the last game to ensure we play finals baseball.

Under 16 Saints
Thursday 16/2/06 Saints met at Rowlands road to do battle with the Eagles. In spite of being a player down and incurring an automatic out, Saints stayed in touch until the bottom of the last dig. Michael Robinson pitched well to keep us competitive throughout. We went down but the spirit was willing! Perhaps it was just too dark when the game was finishing up!

Sunday 19/2/06

At home to top placed Senators, Saints very nearly pulled off a great win. Needing to score five runs in the bottom of the last, they managed four and made the draw. If a couple of things had gone our way the result may have been a win. All players contributed. Toby pitched well and Matt M did a very good job of closing. Tom Kenny made a welcome guest appearance. Some great outfield catches and some strong batting made us look really good. Elliott made a couple of dramatic plays from third. If we could produce our best baseball all of the time we would be unbeatable!

Under 14 Sturt Blue
BYE

Under 14 Saints Blue
Defeated Southern Districts 12-8

Under 14 Sturt Teal
Under 14 (2) Sturt Teal Thankfully we achieved 7 runs in the first innings to put us 3 ahead of Glenelg. Midway through the game we lost direction and focus. Too many errors and poor base running nearly lost the game for us. Finals are approaching and these games are long and tough. To be competitive we will all have to be smart and alert for all of the game. Final score : Sturt 9, Glenelg 8 – I hope??

Hamish Straatman threw well and was well supported by an up an comer by the name of Lunnon, Zac who is all of 7 years old. Scott Wyatt starred with the bat collecting a couple of nice hits. Wedesday 22 Feb

A bitter pill to swallow losing to the other Club team the Saints. However, we had our opportunities but let it slip by. Whilst our pitchers all started well they struggled to maintain the momentum. Henry Saundry hit the ball well all night and showed good hussle in the field.

Under 12 Division 2 Saints
We beat the top undefeated team in Sth Dists 14-10 ! Well what a team effort, you couldn’t ask for anything more After being down 7 nil the boys covered themselves in glory for a hurculean effort Fraser Durham and Tim Kimber battled well on the mound with Matt Franke hanging tough behind the plate Ryan Kazmer played well in the infield and Tom Renfrey made a good catch at centre Our batting was the key with hits to Durham (3), Alexandrou (2) and singles to Kazmer, Franke, M Kimber, Hutchins, Tindall For the other guys a much better disciplined batting effort with 8 walks for the day as well Everyone contributed in some way on the day and they sure should be pleased with themselves after a soul searching week
