Welcome to The University Of Sheffield Baseball Club
Welcome to The University Of Sheffield Baseball Club. The Hornets are a mixed-gender baseball team for all abilities, currently competing in the National University Baseball League
Here at the Hornets we equally value being as inclusive and friendly a club as possible with being as competitive a baseball club as possible, and competing on a high level nationally. We're a relatively new UoS club but we've quickly grown in membership and in turn our performances have been improving year on year. Absolutely everyone is welcome, as long as you attend training sessions you're guaranteed to get playing time with us regardless of ability, even if you've never picked up a baseball before in your entire life! We also try to be as international a club as possible; due to the international appeal of the sport we have players from all corners of the globe and it's a great chance for UK/EU and international students that might not otherwise meet each other to get to know each other!
We train weekly, play games every 1-2 weeks, have regular socials (both non alcoholic such as watching baseball games as well as bar crawls/club nights) and have a few weekends away throughout the year for tournaments which is always great fun.
University is a great time to join a sports team, between all our training sessions, socials, nights out, games and tournaments, you're sure to make new friends and have an awesome experience. We hope you'll decide to come down to training and join us!
We have a stand at the sports freshers fair on Friday the 27th of September where you can speak to committee members and sign up
We're competing in the North division of the National University Baseball League this season for the first time and our aim this year is to win our division. We're also hoping to improve on our previous year finishing joint 2nd in our group at the University Baseball Championships at the biggest baseball complex in the UK in London. Finally we will play our first official varsity game against Hallam this year and we hope to win a point for the university.
Currently we are scheduled to train Sundays from 5-6pm and we are looking to train additionally for another session each week, follow us on Facebook for more updates!
