Redbacks Baseball & Softball

Welcome to the Redbacks Baseball & Softball website.

The Redbacks are a Baseball & Softball club running adult and youth baseball teams and adult softball across Essex, East London and East Anglia, with players coming from Havering to Harwich and Saffron Walden to Southend.

We have adult baseball teams based in Chelmsford, Essex, and adult and youth teams based in Billericay, Essex, with two permanent backstops for junior and senior baseball and softball and equipment available for new players.

For the 2015 season the Redbacks are fielding two senior teams. They compete in the British Baseball Federation (BBF) Triple A (AAA) league, and the Single-A South league. The senior teams are for players aged 16 upwards.

In 2012, the AAA team were runners-up in the National Final, and in 2014, the AAA team again made the playoffs.

Our youth teams are for age groups cater for the following age groups completing in Little League. In 2013, the under 14 team were runners-up in the national championship.

  • Under 10 years (Minors), known as the “Little Redbacks”
  • 10-12 years (Majors)
  • 12-15 years (Juniors)
  • Our youth teams also compete in the BBF South Youth leagues with ages up to 16 years.

    We also support softball in both Chelmsford and Billericay during the summer months of June and July, including helping run Workplace Challenge events in 2014 with Active Essex.

    The Redbacks warmly welcome players of all ages and abilities whether starting to play baseball or softball for the first time or highly experienced, and we are actively seeking new players for our senior and youth baseball teams. We also run schools and outreach sessions, so if you’re interested in bringing baseball or softball to your school, College or youth group, get in touch and we can arrange tailored training sessions or help coordinate coaching qualifications.

    The Redbacks also have a fantastic volunteering programme and in recent years members have won national accolades for coaching and for supporting the growth and publicity of the sports.
