At UMBC, our vision for how the game of baseball should be played goes beyond the result of a single game. We believe the game should be approached with sportsmanship, character and commitment from our players and coaches. We are a proud, inclusive club who encourage players of all ages, genders and abilities to play the game of baseball in the spirit of teamwork, respect and fairness.

UMBC plays in the Melbourne Winter Baseball League. This league is predominately the men’s senior competition, but women are welcome and encouraged to participate. The Winter League season runs for 20 weeks from late April through to September on a Saturday afternoon.

UMBC field 8 senior teams, making us the largest seniors club in Melbourne Winter Baseball League.
