Message from the President

Baseball!  A game played and loved by millions of Americans!

It is a little known fact that an estimated 60 million people play baseball worldwide, with Japan being currently ranked No.1 in World Baseball. Dozens of countries around the world play the "All American Pastime" and are excelling at the sport.

Here in New Zealand, one of the world's last major sporting countries to realise its passion for baseball, interest is rapidly swelling. Player numbers have grown from approximately 600, five years ago, to be in excess of 6,000 throughout New Zealand in 2015. Christchurch is no exception!

The Canterbury Baseball club was founded in 2004, with a baseball diamond constructed at Avonhead Park. It was the formation of the Eastside Cardinals in 2012, soon to be followed by the Southern Astros, in 2013, that prompted the Canterbury Baseball Association to be established the same year (2013). Since then, we have seen steady growth, especially within our junior ranks. Four Premier Grade men's teams and eight junior teams vie for diamond time and victory, at Avonhead Park each Sunday.

We are striving to continue to develop the great game of baseball here in Canterbury. With plans to develop more diamonds throughout the city to be able to cater for the growth we know is on the way. With Men's Baseball and Women's Softball on the verge of being admitted back into the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, we expect a renewed interest in diamond sports throughout the land.

I look forward to fostering and encouraging the growth of the sport in Christchurch. With the help of Baseball New Zealand and many dedicated local volunteers, we will develop Christchurch into one of the leading development centres in New Zealand. The redevelopment of the city after the 2010/11 earthquakes offers us the ideal opportunity to expand baseball throughout the city and surrounding regions.

Come and join me for the ride!

Brian Hemera
President
