Good Afternoon Everyone, and to those I haven't caught up with, compliments of the season and my best wishes for 2015.
Attached are the fees approved by the Baseball Victoria Board for both Summer and Winter Registrations across the 2014-15 period.
Key items to note are as follows:
· I have left both the Baseball Australia fee type in the first column so that you know how this relates to the fee type set by Baseball Victoria.
· The 4.4% IMG STG charge is embedded in the fees and goes directly to IMG. Note: BA and BV do not collect any of this fee.
· Registration Fees are to be paid by the individual member through the front end of the system by debit or credit card. This was introduced for the VSBL summer clubs prior to this current season.
Baseball Australia have employed Miranda Frisken in the IMG online systems support role, and she has done an incredibly good job in working with BV and the Clubs to solve any problems, and to assist administrators with various levels of training. From an internal perspective, we have David Zucchet and Les Flower with a very good understanding of various elements of the IMG system, and they will be available to assist with enquiries as well.
We expect further enhancements to the IMG system via the Baseball Australia Summit in Sydney in February, and we will have at least two staff members present at the IMG training session.
We look forward to working with you in 2015, and please feel free to forward any questions in relation to the fees, and or the process to myself.

Launched at the end of October, Australian Baseball Alumni has been established with the purposes of promoting baseball while providing a means for ongoing connection - and reconnection - between anyone who has had an involvement in the sport, at any level and in any capacity.
Creation of the Alumni group has been driven largely by former Geelong resident and 1984 Helms Award winner Brett Ward, who is a long-time scout for Baltimore Orioles.
Alumni membership is open to everyone – current or former players, coaches, umpires, scorers, administrators, sponsors and supporters.
The Australian Schools Team is currently in United States, where the squad will play 23 games of baseball in a hectic three week schedule.
The tour will take the squad across four states (Oregon, Washington State, California and Arizona).
Werribee pitcher Wes de Jong is one of five Victorian players on the squad, which is coached by Essendon Senior Manager Peter Giles.
Tour Manager Neil Barrowcliff will be seeking to keep family and supporters informed of squad progress that will be followed on the Aussie Baseball Forum and through the Baseball Australia website.
A sub-committee of the GBA Board met on 4 September with representatives of the Guild Baseball Club. This meeting was to consider if a breach of Playing Condition 26.02 occurred during the A Reserve Grand Final. The sub-committee after careful consideration found that a breach of the rule had taken place. While it was acknowledged that the breach was a mistake and that no advantage was intended, nevertheless a breach had occurred. As a result the Guild side has now had a 9-0 loss recorded against its name. However, the sub-committee determined that a win to the Mounties Baseball Club would not be appropriate and that there will be a no result listed in the historical records of the GBA.

Seriously challenged by a combative Bellarine Bears, Guild again produced the offensive goods when it mattered most – in so doing landing its fourth A Grade pennant on the trot with a 6-2 win in beautiful conditions at Geelong Baseball Centre this afternoon.
The win capped another big year for Guild - which qualified all eight club teams for the playoffs - while Colac continued its run of success in the lower grades with an imperious 16-1 shellacking of Saints in B Grade and a hard-fought 10-7 result over Lara Wildcats in B Reserve.
Chasing their fourth A Grade premiership on the trot, Guild Lions will lock horns with a resurgent and in-form Bellarine Bears in what shapes as a massive day of senior Grand Finals at Geelong Baseball Centre on Saturday 30 August....
Congratulations to the premier teams in GBA junior competition for 2014.
