Baseball

Yallourn Baseball Club - No 5 Oval on Eastern Road.
Coach in 1960s was Mr Barnes - who had two sons who were good players.
Can anyone else help with other names - maybe some photos?

Just remembered that Mark D'Alterio was also a player for the baseball club.

Rob & Ross Barnes were his two sons - Rob stills plays Masters baseball and lives in the Geelong area. (where the family was from originally I believe) I played baseball with the club in 1969 to 71. My older brother Greg also played - with Frank Rushton, Peter Scott (who later played with Churchill BC when Yallourn 'folded' due to closing of the town) and Rod Catchpole. Bill Lay was also involved as was his son Phillip (Phil) Lay.

The Under 16 team of 1969 that I can remember included Rob & Ross Barnes, myself, Trevor Williamson, Ray Williams and Alan Lucas. I can remember attending the Awards night at the Town Hall where the senior players put on a '
Players Revue' which was quite funny.
