Australian Baseball Championship

Australia will play their baseball championship this weekend. The Melbourne Aces will play the Adelaide Giants (ex-Bites) in a best two out of three format. The Brisbane Bandits had won the championship the last four years, but this year did not even get to the semi-finals.

The Aces beat the New Zealand team, the Auckland Tuatara to get into the finals. The Giants downed the Canberra Cavalry. The league reported a 21 percent increase in attendance with the Brisbane Bandits leading the attendance at 1,507 spectators per game.

Delmon Young of the Melbourne Aces leads the ABL in homeruns with 13 and RBIs 42. This is his second season in the ABL. He also played in 2017 for the Aces.
