BE A STAR THIS SUMMER
Christmas Came Early For All Stars Baseball Club
Queensland Treasurer, Tim Nicholls, visited Bannister Park at Hendra on Wednesday morning to officially announce that Baseball Queensland with the support of All Stars Baseball Club has been successful in securing a grant of $436,000 through the Get Playing Plus Program. The funds will be used to upgrade the park to establish a state training facility, benefitting the whole baseball community. This is one of 24 projects funded across the state. It is hoped that Brisbane City Council will also contribute to the project. The All Stars Baseball Club will continue to operate from the site, partnering with BQ in assisting with the maintenance of the facility.
Mr Nicholls said, "These improvement works will mean Bannister Park can be used for both club and state baseball programs, including coach and umpire accreditation and a Women and Girls development program."
Baseball Queensland CEO, Col Dick added, "This project will improve lighting so we can practise at night, see fencing installed on two diamonds, grandstands and shade structures built for all diamonds, as well as construction of a bull-pen, covered batting cage, two storage sheds, an amenities block and upgrades to the current clubhouse to enable the venue to be a state level playing and administrative centre."
The park's central Brisbane location, close to the airport and Gateway transport hub, extra diamonds and the resident club's demonstration of good governance and the capacity to partner with BQ prompted the development of this project.
Volunteer Rewards and Fees
All Stars is continuing with the volunteer rewards program. Every person who takes on a role within the club, receives recognition and reward for their contribution. For the most part, this will be in the form of a reduction in playing fees. As such, every individual has the ability to choose what their playing fees will be.
