“With no baseball gloves or bats required, it’s a simple version of the sport that can be played anywhere and anytime,” said NBN News reporter Georgia Stefe.

A free Baseball5 clinic was held at Albert Park complex in the Northern Rivers, the most north-easterly region of the Australian state of New South Wales. The clinic focused on the basics of the WBSC’s street discipline and was supported by Baseball New South Wales.

“With no baseball gloves or bats required, it’s a simple version of the sport that can be played anywhere and anytime,” said NBN News reporter Georgia STEFE. “It’s a sport for everyone, with the rules stating that in mixed games at least two athletes of each gender must be on field at all times.”

“I played a lot of 4 esquinas / Baseball5 during my whole childhood and adolescent life,” said Adrian Medina SCULL, head of Baseball5 New South Wales who developed the clinic. “Right now my goal is to get players from metropolitan and regional New South Wales game-ready for the first State Championship in March 2021 and take a few teams to represent New South Wales at the National Championship.”

On 25 October, Baseball New South Wales organised a Baseball5 friendly game between two teams formed by Cubans and Venezuelans living in Sydney.
