Hello Dodgers Nation,
I am terribly saddened to be writing today to inform everyone that the Dandenong Baseball Association, along with Baseball Victoria, have announced the winter season will not proceed and is cancelled from 6 July. The DBA has taken a hard look at the current situation and decided that the risk to our players and members is far too great.
Clubs can continue training, albeit discouraged, and some of our members may do so. As a club, we are not likely to organize training. We will allow access to the facilities for training should any coaches decide they want to train their team.
Stay in touch, stay safe and come play next season!
Our women commenced training two weeks ago. This Saturday, June 27, our men will be training from 1pm with our women taking to the field at 2pm. We strongly encourage every player to come down and join us for a throw. While you’re at it, you can have a look at the progress on the ground works that the council is providing for our home ground.
There are plenty of guidelines and safeguards in place to protect participating players. Sanitizer will be provided by the club but please make sure you bring your own equipment and drink bottles, the canteen will not be open at this stage. If you intend to come to the club, please head over to the BV site and register for the return to activity. This is a free registration and it must be done so that we can report attendance and conduct contact tracing.
Hello Dodgers World,
As some of you would be aware, Baseball Victoria have given the green light to return to training from Monday 25 May. Training will have a different look to it as we continue to fight the virus. Currently, we are awaiting the council’s approval to access the pavilion again. We will continue to keep you all updated on the training and pending season. In the meantime, please head over to the BV site and register for the return to training. This is a free registration but will be required before you are allowed to train. Also please contact our secretary Jordan Russell via the links email or phone to let him know you are playing or for more information.

See you on the diamond soon!
At this stage, most of you would be aware that the April 7 date has been moved to April 14th. The DBA is considering what the season will look like whilst taking in the government mandates and input from BV.
We, The Berwick Dodgers Committee, are looking to work with the DBA to develop contingency plans for a shortened season, should that become the case. Just like all of you, we cannot wait to take the field.
The DBA will be meeting with BV and the rest of the winter associations on Tuesday and will provide us with further details as soon as they have them. We will continue to do the same for our Dodgers family.
