Forest Baseball Club fields a number of teams in the Manly-Warringah Winter Baseball League.
There are generally four or five grades in the Winter League, ranging from experienced and highly competitive baseball in 1st grade, through to a very social level of baseball in 4th (or 5th) grade. Forest will field teams in every grade.
The graded competition is structured to offer participants of all levels of ability (beginners to representative level players) an opportunity to experience playing baseball at home on the Northern Beaches with limited travel. Most games are played at Aquatic Reserve Baseball Park in Frenchs Forest, Rat Park in Warriewood or Abbott Road in Curl Curl, with some played at Balgowlah Oval in Balgowlah.
Games are 2 hour timed games played at 12 noon and 2.30pm on Saturday or Sunday afternoons (Note: 1st and 2nd grade teams play at 12.30pm and 2.45pm).
Key 2021 season information includes:
- Season dates: April to August (finals usually held through August).
- Fees: $240 for players that played summer or $355 for those that didn’t play summer. This includes a $70 allowance for umpiring fees. Active Kids Vouchers can be used for U18s.
- Grading: Forest will field at least one team in every grade available.
- 5th grade: We encourage new players and parents of juniors to sign up and request 5th grade. We also encourage our juniors coming through to seniors and cricketers wanting to try the game to contact us to find a grade to suit your ability.
