Newport Baseball Club was established in 1928 and is a Division 1 club rich in history of great players, characters and impressive results achieved over many years, as well as many individual player achievements at all age groups in various representative sides.
Newport places a strong emphasis on all levels and age groups and focuses heavily on being a family oriented club with a strong Code of Conduct focused on fair, respectful and enjoyable participation by all. The RAMS have always enjoyed a strong Junior program which is the foundation of any great club, many current senior players started at Newport as Junior RAMS.
The past few seasons have been a time for continued growth of our senior playing list as the club returns to Division 1 competition for the 2013/14 season. At a junior level the past season (2012/13) saw Newport field 10 junior sides from U12s to U18s with a total of 120+ junior players, our second year running the AUSSIE-TBALL program for kids from 5-9 year old was again a great success with many budding champions taking the field. It was great to be around the club and see so many boys and girls of all ages having a great time playing the game of baseball. The focus for the future is to further promote the game of baseball throughout the area with the aim of of sustaining our junior numbers over the next 5 years.
During the 2013 Winter The RAMS fielded U12 and U14 sides in the Geelong Baseball Association. The Winter has also seen more upgrades around the RAM-DOME on all grounds, spectator areas. The club rooms have also had a coat of paint and some other renovations will also make things more comfortable for our members.
There are always many challenges ahead for the RAMS and after a change to the club committee also saw a new Club President elected the club the future continues to be bright at the RAM-DOME.
So whether you are a current member, previous member or potential new member come down to the RAM-DOME and take the field or just enjoy being part of our great club.
