Monash University Baseball Club (aka MUBC aka “the Farmers”) operates as a sporting club under the auspices of TeamMONASH, and is the only University baseball club in Australia to play both winter and summer seasons.
We play on Saturdays or Sundays during the winter season. Mens Senior teams play either day (usually Saturday during Winter season, and Sundays during Summer season), and Womens usually play Sundays during Winter season.
We welcome not only students and staff at Monash, but also graduates and alumni to play ball with us. We accept players of all skill levels (from beginners/rookies to Claxton Shield and minor league players). In particular we strongly encourage players who’ve never played baseball before to join us and learn about the great game of baseball.
Apart from Rookie Day (where we encourage rookies to learn the game), we have an extensive social program with regular BBQs, trivia nights, burger nights and big social events. We also actively encourage students to participate in the annual State and National University Games (also known as IV) as part of the University baseball team. Other Monash students who play with other baseball clubs in Victoria are more than welcome to play with us at these tournaments. We were proud to win IV in 2011 and continue to be one of the best performing IV teams.
We celebrated its 50th year in 2013 with a flag, and has a proud history in both Victorian summer and winter competitions (including 6 consecutive A Grade flags in the early 80s). Have a look at our club origins and history to get a better feel.
If you have any questions, comments or would like to join us for the season please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!
