THE Falcons Baseball Club will take to the field in 2014.
A new board has been elected despite fears that the Bendigo Baseball Association powerhouse will fold.
The club’s younger players have stepped up, taking on new roles.
New president Dale Lindrea said he was excited about the changes the club faces this year.
“We have had existing members put their hand up for new roles,” he said.
“I am extremely excited about this year, we have already came up with fundraising ideas for the club.”
Lindrea said the Falcons would also have a new vice-president in Jason Harriage.
He said some of the younger players involved with the club would have more of an influence, but the club would still rely on the support from club stalwarts.
Lindrea, who has been involved with the club since he was 10, said it would have been devastating if the Falcons didn’t have a team this season.
“It would have been dyer for the association if another team had pulled out of the competition,” he said.
“The Falcons Baseball Club is a family club and everyone involved would have been distraught.”
Last season the club celebrated its 50th anniversary and won its 14th straight A-grade premiership.
Lindrea said the team is gunning for its 15th successive title when their season begins in April.
"This season we hope to have three senior sides, under-12, under-14 and junior T-ball teams," he said.
"There are some concerns about an under-16 team."
