Baseball Culture

Baseball is the same game wherever it is played around the world, yet it is local brands of baseball culture that make it unique internationally. Culture is the foundation of any civilisation and baseball games often present fans with unique game day experiences, which can include: war cries, team songs, club history, and local popular music. The Australian Baseball League has completed its second season of its new format, with the Perth Heat winning back to back ABL Championships. From season one fans of ABL club's across Australia quickly developed their own war cries, but what is missing is team songs. It would be fantastic if the ABL started a competition to encourage fans to write lyrics for team songs, and fans could vote for their favourites. ABL culture continues to grow with each season that passes, and this is an attribute of the game that helps give baseball in Australia its own brand.
