ABERDEEN BASEBALL CLUB
The Aberdeen Baseball Club was founded in 2013 when 8 players joined together to form the Granite City Oilers. The club competes in the Scottish National Baseball League and is the premier club in the north-east of Scotland. The Granite City Oilers were the founding team for the Aberdeen Baseball Club, but was joined by a second team, the Aberdeen Express, the Aberdeen Coos youth program, established in 2018, and the Aberdeen Thistle Women’s Baseball Team, established in 2020. Among their ranks are players from all over the north-east as the sport continues to spread throughout Scotland and the UK. The Oilers and the Express compete against six teams in the Scottish National League: three teams from Edinburgh; the Cannons, the Diamond Devils, and the Giants, two from Glasgow; the Comets and Galaxy, and one team from Dundee, the Tayport Breakers. The bar has been set high for our club by setting the goals for one of the two teams to win the league and the Caledonia Cup while maintaining a top-tier permanent baseball field in the north-east of Scotland.
In 2018, the club constructed the first permanent baseball field in the North, the northern most baseball diamond. The club also participated in several community outreach programmes such as clean-up days and the local Celebrate Aberdeen parade. These are vital to future development and growth of the sport of baseball in Scotland, and establishing a lasting legacy for generations to come.
The future is bright for the Aberdeen Baseball Club and we hope you will join us on the journey!
