Casula Lakers Baseball Club began over 18 years ago. It was a breakaway club from what is now known as the Chipping Norton Baseball Club with the soul purpose of expanding the sport by covering more areas hoping to attract a greater number of players and giving players a greater opportunity for a better competition. The club originally had no home ground until a couple of years later when Liverpool Council gave us Jardine Park in Casula. It was then transformed into a football field, leaving no home for Lakers. Council then gave us Daruk Park and that has been home since. Last season saw about 80 juniors and about 40 seniors registered at the club. Over the years many players have represented not only at association level, but at state level as well.
Value to the Community
The dedication from the volunteers that help run the club and coach the kids brings a sense of family to the community. Most of the players reside in the local area, coming from all walks of life, are brought together by their love of baseball. Our coaches not only teach our players, aged 5-16 years, the fundamentals of baseball, but good sportsmanship, mate ship and respect. It is a club that is proud to be a part of the local community to encourage and promote baseball.
Why the funds are needed
We are seeking to provide training shirts for all of our players. Last year was the first time this was introduced to the club and it brought a great sense of team spirit to the kids. As we are only a small club, the cost of the shirts took a big bite out of our budget, but it was great to see all the players look like a team at training sessions and we'd like to be able to supply them with shirts again next season. Costs are as follows- 80 x training shirts @ $18 each-$1440.
