Britain’s oldest existing baseball club, the Liverpool Trojans, marked their 70th anniversary as the club’s first and second teams met for the very first time.
The original team was formed in 1946 by ex-servicemen returning from the second world war. During the early years the team were on a very steep learning curve as the standard of baseball in the UK was extremely high. During the mid 70's and early 80's the Trojans won the British Championship 3 times and won their own division for nine consecutive years, at the time a British record. Winning ways returned to the Trojans in 2011 & 2012, becoming AAA National champions after losing out in the semi-final in 2010. In 2013 the Trojans once again made it to the AAA national Finals but were beaten by the London Metros. The current Liverpool Trojans are setting their own high standards and are keen to follow their predecessor's winning ways.
