Welcome to the Tribe.
The Indians Baseball Club was founded in 1982, and has been a permanent fixture in the Queensland Baseball Community ever since.
On the 29th. July 1982, the Southside Indians Baseball Club held their first "sign-on" day at Dittmer Park, Mt Gravatt, and baseball history was made in Queensland. On that day the Indians signed on players from under 9 Tee-ball through to Major League B grade and immediately became the largest junior club in the state. To prove that might is right they have consistently had junior teams taking out Premierships in all the junior division, from that first year.
In 1983 the home field for the Indians changed from Dittmer Park to South's United Soccer field at Wakerley Park Runcorn. In this year the Pee Wee league came into existence with Indians having a league of six teams from which a representative team was chosen. This team under the coaching skill of Mr Merv Foxover, went on to win the Zone and Brisbane finals but was defeated by Ipswich in the State Championships. .
In 1984 the Indians successfully negotiated with South's United and the City Council for the lease of 5 acres of ground at the eastern end of Wakerley Park and the building of our own home ground began. From July 1984 to October 1984 Club members gave time and efforts to convert what had been a former dump into a playing field. On October the 6th, the then Commissioner of Baseball in Queensland, Mr. Kel Macbeth, threw the first pitch to start an Under 15 fixture game, the first on our home ground. Work has continued on the grounds from that date and in time it is hoped that Indians field will be the best baseball facility in Brisbane, if not the state.
Indians Baseball Club has gone from strength to strength over it's 40 years history and we have had the pleasure of having so many players and families join our tribe. We hope to welcome you and yours at the home of the Indians, Wakerley Park.
