History

The Canterbury Bankstown District Baseball Club Ltd was formed in 1946 and competed in the first district baseball competition in the Major League competition conducted by Baseball NSW. The club incorporated in August 1991.

An early president was Roland (Pop) Pearce who was succeeded by his son Albert Pearce and between them they held the position for over 30 years.

The position was then held by Col Martin who was treasurer for 19 years before being elected president in 1981. He held this position until his retirement in 1989. John Kalaf, who served on the committee for a number of years, then became president.

In the early years the club had little success and it was not until 1968 that the Little League team coached by Barry Holland won the state championship. Since then the club has had a number of successes including 9 first grade premierships.

Peter Worboys joined the coaching ranks in 1980 and is now the club’s coaching co-ordinator with former club and representative player Ben D'Antonio taking on the responsibility as head coach. We welcome Trent D'Antonio, a current player with the Vikings and Sydney Blues as well as an Australian representative, and Scott Podmore, also a Vikings player, to the coaching ranks.  They will join our current coaches Gary White , Andrew Cooke, Dave White, Robert Cook and Fady Karam in guiding the club for the 2018/2019 season.
