East Hills Baseball Club History

East Hills Baseball Club was formally established in 1965 and was the first baseball club in the Bankstown District and originally known as East Hills Little League of Baseball.  Our founding members were Norm Perry and Don Sohier (dec) and for many years EHBC played at Marco Reserve before moving to Kelso Park North in 1995. Prior to training at Marco Avenue fields, EHBC used the ground that is now Killara Football fields and sometimes used the area now known as Norm Perry's Field of Dreams in Bransgrove Road.East Hills currently play at Kelso Baseball Complex fantastic facility which has 3 fully enclosed diamonds, batting tunnel, clubhouse and parking.
