Redbacks claim Minor Premiership in thrilling comeback

Congratulations to the Redbacks on claiming the MWML Summer League Minor Premiership.

The Redbacks team left their run late, scoring 11 runs in the last inning in their final game to take a 13-12 victory and clinch the top spot.

Good luck to all teams in the finals, commencing at Aquatic Reserve on Saturday, 24th February at 2pm.

Winter Baseball – Registrations Now Open!

The MWML Winter Baseball season will commence in April and individual player registrations are now open. Please use the following link to register and select ‘Minor League – Winter Competition 2018‘:

Please note a few key tips on the new SportsTG registration system rolled out by Baseball Australia:

  1. If you have previously set up a Baseball Australia user profile in the SportsTG platform (i.e. in summer or Masters) please ensure you click ‘Already have an account? Login’. DO NOT CREATE AN ADDITIONAL PROFILE AS YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY BNSW AND BA CAPITATION AGAIN. Please note that all refunds are now processed directly through Baseball Australia.
  2. If you are setting up a User ID for the first time, use a personal email address (e.g. Gmail/Hotmail) as this is your unique identifier. If you use a work one these are subject to change over time and can lead to the creation of multiple user IDs.
  3. Using Google Chrome is recommended as Internet Explorer/Edge has previously had issues with the system.

Preliminary competition details as follows:
Season dates: April through August
Venues Available: Mainly Aquatic Reserve, Rat Park, Abbott Road and Balgowlah Oval
Game times: Saturdays and Sundays (12pm and 2.30pm)
Game duration: 2.0hrs
Age restriction: 16+ for 1st grade, 15+ for 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade

Fees: $275 (if not previously registered in a summer competition) / $150 (approximately if registered in summer competition)

If you are a manager looking to enter a new team into the MWML competition, please contact John Farrant ( to receive further information and determine your game time and day preferences. 

Autumn Masters – Registrations Open!

The Tough Dog Autumn Masters Series will commence on Monday, 29th January and registrations are now open.

Please use the following link to register:

The competition retains the Spring Series format of four teams playing three rounds of games against each other, followed by a 1 v 2 Grand Final (approximately 10 weeks pending weather).

Fees will be $275 for players that haven’t previously registered for Summer League or Spring Masters, or $160 for players that have previously registered (the additional $115 is BA and BNSW capitation costs). If you plan on playing winter baseball, the capitation fees you pay in Masters ($115) will not be charged to your winter registration.

For any queries or if you are looking for a team, email John Farrant (

Minor League summer registrations now open

Registration for Manly Warringah Minor League will be adopting a new registration process which has been rolled out by Baseball NSW with support from Baseball Australia.  It will be mandatory for all players of all ages to register through their new online system called SportsTG.  It is a requirement by BA and BNSW that all players must register and pay before they can take the field.

To complete the registration you must complete the following steps

Step 1

Launch the registration form found on the following link – Minor League Registration Form 

 Step 2

Create an account by filling in the details or if you have an account already then go to “already have an account” and login

 Step 3

Complete the registration form for “Myself” or “Someone Else” like your son / daughter.  Complete the player details as requested.

 Step 4

Choose the competition that you would like to play for – ML Summer Comp or ML Masters Comp or both

 Player Fees

The total fees for Summer League are $265 and Masters $275.  If you are playing State League and have paid full fees with State League then you may choose the option of nil payment for Summer Comp.  BA and NSW registration only needs to be paid once annually so any future competition registrations will be reduced by this amount

Spring Masters



Winter is well and truly here and that can only mean one thing – Spring Masters is just around the corner!

This year there are a few things happening that are worthwhile explaining:

  1. We can only get Aquatic 1 on a Monday night before Christmas, so we have to limit the competition to four teams (instead of five).
  2. We will go back to running a ‘short season’ with 9 games (3 rounds of 3 games) followed by a Grand Final of 1 v 2.
  3. The season will run from September to November (with washout contingencies into December to ensure the full 9 games and GF get played).

In addition to the Spring Masters, we will also be looking to have an Autumn Masters (February through April) in a similar format. Registrations for that will be separate.

So, with that summary in mind, the four teams that have automatic rights for entry into the Spring Masters are Forest, Pittwater, Mosman and Ballers.  Please let your team manager know if you will be signing up for this seasons’ Spring Masters




Minor League baseball’s new website is an important part of the information cycle and its aim is to promote baseball within the community and give the players and friends information about the sport in Manly Warringah.

A decision was taken to allow Minor League to have their own website, that way, all of the relevant information pertaining to minor league would be able to be consolidated in one place for its members.

We hope you enjoy using this site and with time and member input, it will grow to be an informative database that our members can refer to for all of their information about baseball in the Manly Warringah area.
