2009 Claxton Shield Launch
The 2009 Claxton Shield was officially launched in Sydney on 23 October, in conjunction with Major League Baseball and the American Australian Association's World Series Watch Party.
Celebrating a 75 year milestone in 2009, Australia's oldest and most prestigious baseball competition will herald an unprecedented format that many see as a vital step towards a revamped national competition.
To celebrate the 75th, or 'Diamond' Anniversary of the Claxton Shield, the Australian Baseball Federation will select and announce a Claxton Shield 'Diamond Anniversary All-Star Team'.
The ABF views this as a unique opportunity to celebrate the game by formally recognising the achievements of some of the game’s greatest stars - and would like to thank Bill Edmonds, Peter Power, Col Emmerick and Lionel Harris for attending the launch party....specifically Col and Bill, who donned the New South Wales Patriots heritage uniforms for some photo opportunities.
