Club Coach

Heathmont Baseball Club is very pleased to announce that highly regarded Penguin stalwart Mitch Ayres has been appointed Club Coach for the 2021 season. Before Mitch was hitting bombs for us and running our defence, he had already racked up an impressive career;

  • Victorian Junior representative
  • Member of the VIS
  • Australian U17 representative
  • Played professionally with the Los Angeles Dodgers organisation, Draci Brno in the Czech Professional League, and the Melbourne Aces
  • Coached Junior Victorian State teams, VIS & Victorian Academy teams
  • Club Coach of Upwey FTG Baseball Club and Knox Baseball Club

We are very excited to see the 2021 season unfold and can’t wait to see the teams get to work under Mitch’s leadership.

Facility Upgrades

We are pleased and excited to announce that our club has been given a huge lighting upgrade by the Maroondah City Council, that has massively improved night and low-light visibility for training and special junior game purposes, and a redesigned 3rd base dugout is on its way.
