Club History and Information

Queensland Baseball Sports Club, playing in the GBL and the GCBA competitions. We are a family orientated and run club. We host teams from Tee Ball (Under 8’s) through to both Males and Females Masters teams, representing the GCBA and GBL regions. Beenleigh Hawks have a very strong history as an Australian Baseball Club.

Beenleigh Hawks was established in 1982/83 to provide another sport option for the younger players of the Beenleigh Junior Rugby League Club with the intention of keeping the rugby players active and together during the off-season.

Tom Costigan, John Mulligan and Bob Sinden were key movers in establishing the club alongside other community-minded members of the region.

In 1997, Beenleigh and Districts Baseball Club applied and was successful in the entering the club in the Major Competition and to date remain in this competition.

On December 21, 2008, Beenleigh B-Grade won the Commissioners Cup. And over a number of years, we have won multiple GBL awards. We believe that our past awards don’t define our future potential and we’re always looking for the next best players to join our teams! You don’t have to be a game veteran, and you’re not expected to be!

A Hawks History

We’re actively looking to compile a thorough and detailed history of the Beenleigh Hawks Baseball Club and we’d love your assistance.
I want to compile the most extensive history possible – so if you’ve got ANYTHING you think is relevant, I want to hear it! (or see it! Videos, Photos, etc. are all welcome as well)

Send any information through to: nick@beenleighhawks.com.au – as I’m the one in charge of the project

The Future

Beenleigh Hawks as a club has an extremely exciting future ahead of it!
We’re currently working with Logan City Council to formulate a facilities masterplan that involves us gaining new and refurbished amenities in the future.

We are currently working on single-lane bullpens, one on each side of the field to improve playing conditions and give pitchers a place to warm up and train. We are also excited to be purchasing a digital scoreboard which we hope to use during games.

If you’re a business and you’re looking to have your business forever memorialised as a key supporter in our new and upgraded facilities, please contact us with any relevant information! Our Sponsorships Page.
