The Adelaide Bite are a professional baseball team who plays in the Australian Baseball League and is one of the six founding teams of the league. Their home ballpark is Coopers Stadium at Norwood Oval which is based in the city of Adelaide, South Australia. The team name originates from the nearby hydrographic landmark, the Great Australian Bight as well as the Great White Shark which inhabits the southern coast of South Australia.[1]

As of the launch, Pat Kelly was announced as the GM.[2]

It was announced on 16 September 2010 that South Australian power company ETSA Utilities would be the major sponsor of the Adelaide Bite and that the team would be known as the Adelaide ETSA Bite.[3]
