Play Summer Baseball

The Mornington Pirates Baseball Club had our innaugural summer season in the VSBL in 2020/21. Prior to that we were a Winter-only club (except for Masters).

In the first two seasons we entered two senior teams (in Division 4). Our Junior group grew from 1.5 teams in the first year to 2.5 teams in the second! We aim to continue building on that from here on in.

The season runs from October to March each year. If you are interested in playing, please keep up to date with everything on our Facebook page or contact our club President, Russell Johnton:
