Our Senior Presentation Night was held on Saturday 10th April to celebrate the accomplishments of our senior squad over season 2020/21. With one premiership (GCBA Div 1) and a runner-up (GBL Div 2) it was an accomplished season for Surfers Baseball as we usher in a significant change across our senior playing ranks over the past year with 75% of the senior playing group under the age of 24. Some exciting times are ahead for Surfers Baseball!
During the night we were able to award long-serving Club President Tony McPhail with a prestigious award, officially unveiling the Tony McPhail Club House… it was meant to be awarded last year but COVID lockdowns prevented us from sharing this award.
On the night, we also acknowledged the long standing service of our GBL scorers Connie Stoyakovich and Bette Holland who have served our GBL teams for the past 19 years and we are certainly expecting to see them again as we celebrate our 20 year anniversary of participation in the Greater Brisbane League in season 2021/22.

- GBL Div 1 MVP: Ben Grant
- GBL Div 2 MVP: Brad Wise
