Summer Baseball @ Cheltenham


Cheltenham Rustlers compete in the state-wide summer season run by Baseball Victoria from October through to March. This is also called the Summer League.

Summer competition involves playing teams from a wide range of locations (from Upwey to Geelong) and can therefore involve a bit of travel.


The club runs teams in juniors (teeball, under 12, under 14, under 16 and under 18) and seniors at various levels, starting with elite-level 1sts through to more social 4th and 5th grade teams, Masters (old blokes) and a number of All-Korean teams(3 in 2013-14).

The club runs junior teams in both Sunday competition and Friday Night competition in summer.

Junior Sunday baseball is played among a wide range of club teams in Major and Minor League levels and is considered a representative form of the game.

Sunday games start at 8.45am.

Friday Night baseball is largely a domestic run competition (ie. within Cheltenham BC and some neighbouring clubs) run at under 12 and 14 levels only, and is a more relaxed competition with the emphasis on fun and participation. These games are often played at Cheltenham on a Friday evening at around 6.30pm.

The main club training night is Thursday.

The club also runs a Saturday morning teeball (under 10s modified baseball) competition; a domestic competition run between Chelt club sides.
