The full rules of baseball apply, with games played on a full size field. Broken into two groups, Division 1 and Division 2, with no rule or match day differences between the divisions. Games are run by the GBL (in accordance with Baseball Queensland) with clubs from the Brisbane area and Gold Coast. Team Sizes are 9 on the field with bench players teams up to around 11 or 12.

Age (2018/2019 Season):

Baseball uses a “baseball age” matrix to determine which age group applies. Players who have a baseball age of  15 or 16 will play Senior League (the matrix makes this easy to determine).
