Essex Blades Baseball & Softball

ABOUT OUR TEAM

Our baseball team competes at BUCS, South East Division. The baseball team is the more established and competitive of the teams. Players across the league come from all skill levels and often have more experience which may make it more difficult for newer players. However, we have helped new players join and learn the game and will continue to do so.

The team will play 5 games across the year, with finals being at the end of March.

Our aim for the year 2023/2024 is to continue winning the league and improve at the national cup.

Although the club has the equipments, it is recommended that you have, a fielding glove that fits the size of your hand, Baseball pants, and footwear for playing on grass/turf pitches at the bare minimum. If you wish to further improve your abilities, consider purchasing a baseball bat. We strongly advise you to invest in thermals; we will be training and playing outside and it gets very cold during Winter.
