Baseball Victoria’s 2022 U16 State Winter Championship will take place in Latrobe Valley over the weekend of 23-24 July with seven teams from across the state taking part in the action-packed tournament.

Morwell Cougars and Traralgon Redsox Baseball Club of Latrobe Valley Baseball Association (LVBA) will host the tournament, featuring 18 games over two days.

“LVBA as a whole and the hosting clubs Morwell and Traralgon are very excited about the opportunity to host this year’s U16 State Winter Champs,” LVBA President Nicole White said.

“We are enthusiastic about seeing representatives from all over the state playing baseball. COVID has meant that we missed out on the opportunity to host this in 2021 and we are thrilled to be able to return to hosting. We would love to see people from all walks of life popping down to enjoy some premier junior baseball.”

The community is grateful to see this winter tradition return to Latrobe Valley for more baseball fun.

“We look forward to welcoming players, officials, and supporters to Latrobe City for the championship event, which will be a fantastic weekend of baseball,” Mayor of Latrobe City Cr Kellie O’Callaghan said. “This is the third time this event has been hosted in our City and we’re pleased to see it return, helping to support our local economy and grow participation in the sport.”

The U16 State Winter Championship is the final tournament of the season, marking the first time in three years all five age groups were able to get on the field.

“We’ve enjoyed four fantastic winter tournaments so far and we look forward to finishing the tournament season on a high note with the U16 event in Latrobe Valley,” Baseball Victoria CEO Chet Gray said. “We wish everyone the best of luck and hope all players have an awesome time out on the field.”
