SEP TRIMBOLI

900 SENIOR GAMES

5TH MARCH 2011

The Adelaide Baseball Club would like to recognise the achievement of Sep Trimboli playing 900 senior games, all of which have been played for our club - the Adelaide 'Angels'.

Sep first started playing at the Adelaide Angels Baseball Club in 1969 in U12's and in his second year he won his first of many Junior Best and fairest awards. His first premiership came when he played in the U17 team at Norwood oval where his skill with the bat resulted in him hitting two home runs.

At the age of 18 Sep played his first Div.1 game and won the Rookie of the year.  Along the way he also won the Best Batter award 4 times and also a Best and Fairest in 1999/00.   In 97/98 Sep took on the leadership role as Head coach of the Div. 1 team.   After 25 years of Div 1 Sep finally tasted success winning the 2002 Premiership at the age of 43.

Sep served on the Adelaide Baseball Club's management committee for 12 years - 5 of which he served as President guiding the Club through some challenging years. He is a life member of the Club and is still active in the Sponsorship side of the committee.

42 years of unbroken service at one club is a huge achievement and I am sure that Sep will be the first to agree that this achievement could not have been possible without the tremendous support of his wife Jenny, and two daughters.  

Sep continues to play the game that he loves and is a key player in the Adelaide 'Angels' Div 7 team which play a home final this week-end (Sat 5 March) at Weigal oval.  I hope that all those who have been a part of Sep's baseball career will join us to celebrate Sep's momentous achievement of playing 900 games.    Congratulations Sep - let's hope we can bring home a premiership in 2011 for the Div 7's.

Congratulations
to

Norman "Chalky" White

2011

Inductee to the Baseball Australia Hall of Fame

Norm "Chalky" White joins elite company as a 2011 Inductee to the Baseball Australia Hall of Fame.

Norm, inducted for the era 1947-1967, will be joined by Cecil Lamert (era 1919 - 1946), Jack Lambert (era 1919 - 1946) and Graham Cassel (era 1989 - 1999) in the class of 2011.

One of the State's outstanding baseballers of the post-war era, Norm White rendered yeoman service to his Adelaide Winter and North Adelaide Night Baseball Club's and the State.

Irrespective of the game situation, he never gave up. Chalky was a student of the sport and believed no situation was impossible until the last batter was dismissed.

Norm first played senior baseball with Goodwood Baseball Club in 1944. In 1946 Norm transferred to Adelaide, where he stayed until he retired from winter baseball in 1956.

Norm also played night baseball with North Adelaide from 1952/53 until he retired from all senior baseball at the end of the 1959/60 season.

Between his first "A" Grade baseball game in 1944 until his retirement in 1959/60 Norm reached the highest possible levels as a South Australian and Australian player.

Norm first became involved in junior coaching with Goodwood in 1944 as a19 year old.

Norm transferred to Adelaide in 1946. With increased confidence and a keen desire to spread baseball further, realizing that junior players would be the life blood of the Adelaide Baseball Club, Norm introduced baseball to the Sturt Street, Gilles Street and Flinders Street Primary Schools.

During the 50's and 60's Norm continued to spread baseball to Plympton Primary and St Leonards Primary - as well as assisting baseball clinics in the Adelaide areas of Black Forest, Colonel Light Gardens, Enfield, Nailsworth, Prospect, Port Adelaide and Woodville.

After Norm retired from "A" Grade competition with the Adelaide Baseball Club at the end of the 1956 winter season, Norm continued his association with the Adelaide Club as its junior coordinator for many years.

At the end of the 1953 Claxton Shield Series in Queensland, Norm was approached and offered a contract to play with the Boston Redsox.

The deal was that Norm would move to America for six months without his family. As Norm was married with two young children and had just purchased a home (with a mortgage), he decided to reluctantly decline the contract.

One of Norm's most memorable moments was while representing Australia at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics; playing in front of 100,000 spectators at the MCG he hit a home run.

Norm is regarded as South Australia's finest Baseballer during the period 1947-1967
