Awarded at last night’s AGM, the UMBC committee is proud to announce James Dann’s installation as a Life Member of the University of Melbourne Baseball Club!

James joined the club in 2009 and has played consistently since then. James has played predominantly in the Third IX and managed the team in multiple seasons. He won the club’s Roy Gross Memorial Award for Most Improved Player in 2009. He’s represented the club at Winter State Carnivals in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

James has also played a leadership role in growing and fostering the club’s connection to Uni Games, as a player (2009, 2010 – bronze medal, 2011, 2019), coach (2012 – gold medal, 2013 – gold medal, 2014 – bronze medal, 2015), and manager (2019).

Annual General Meeting 2021

Our AGM took place last night (in person!) at the Clyde, and we bid farewell to departing members and welcome new members to the fold. We also congratulated James Dann on his installation as a new Life Member to the University of Melbourne Baseball Club!

Tom Andronas stepped down as President after 5 years in the role, Irfan Fadhiel stepped down as Secretary after 2 years and Benji White stepped down as Treasurer after 5 years. We are incredibly grateful for the service and commitment of each of these club leaders over the past few years. The club is in a strong position coming into the 2022 Winter season, and we hope to build on the sustainable foundation these leaders have laid down.

We are excited to announce our Executive Committee for 2022:

  • President: Megan Kelly
  • Vice President: Nick Sherlock
  • Secretary: Jordan Sinnamon
  • Treasurer: Kyle Harper

We also welcome new committee student members Anisha Bunsee and Dylan Kitney, and our returning committee members Jack Chang, Taylor Field and Kevin Hendler. We farewell Jenny Liu as a committee member, but we’ll be sure to see her volunteering around the club next year!

The committee is looking forward to 2022 and we’re optimistic that we can get through the season without too many pandemic-related hiccups and some more in-person social events (as much as we love online trivia!)
