Baseball Merchandise and Fan Gear
Australia is pretty big on sports. From the various football codes – rugby league, rugby union, AFL and soccer – to other sports, such as tennis, cricket, motorsport and horse racing, Australians just love playing and watching sport. With the proliferation and popularity of these sports, it does mean some get pushed into the background. While baseball is huge over in the United States, it has never gained the same traction in Australia. However, baseball does have a long history over here.
It is said baseball was brought over to Australia during the gold rush of the 1850s, when American gold miners introduced the sport to locals by playing baseball on their rest days. While cricket has certainly dominated in Australia since then, baseball has held a presence throughout the decades. Today, there is the Australian Baseball League. Jointly funded by the Australian Baseball Federation, Major League Baseball and the Australian Federal Government, the ABL has six professional baseballs teams that compete each year from November to February: the Sydney Blue Sox, Melbourne Aces, Perth Heat, Adelaide Bite, Brisbane Bandits and Canberra Calvary. So, are you ready to take on a new sport? Want to follow your local team? Time to get your hands on some merchandise and head on down to a game.
