1999-2000 BWA State League Premiers.

The South Perth Baseball Club was established in 1947 with Jim Dore as its first coach.

In the 2021/2022 Season we celebrated our 75th Anniversary as a club. There we a couple of events held during the season to recognize and celebrate this great achievement, all culminating with a fantastic piece of work, lead by Jody Adams and many past and present club members, that showcases our history from day one until now.
