Blue Sox Stadium – Sydney Blue Sox

Blue Sox Stadium – Sydney Blue Sox

The Sydney Blue Sox were formed when the Australian Baseball League was relaunched in a partnership with Major League Baseball in 2010/11. MLB has since redirected its funding into other areas of player development, forcing the ABL to re-assess their approach to professional baseball. After several years of decline, the league has adopted a private ownership model, which in Sydney’s case has reinvigorated the Blue Sox fan experience and brought the fans back in droves.

Bennett Field – Adelaide Bite

The Adelaide Bite were formed as a part of the relaunched Australian Baseball League in 2010. Like the other founding clubs (Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney), the Bite were centrally owned until the 2018/19 season when a private ownership model was adopted across the league. In somewhat of a coup for baseball in South Australia, the Bite were bought by the Adelaide Crows AFL club.

The third annual Stadium Journey convention was held this week in New Orleans. What else do you do when in one of the biggest party cities in the world? Why, you record a podcast, of course. Special guests crash the party and a great conversation is had about the future of Stadium Journey, what North American sports look like to an Austrailian, how stadiums Down Under compare, and what to look for in terms of stadiums when you visit the Big Easy.
