The Shoalhaven Mariners Baseball Association, also known as the Shoalhaven Mariners is a baseball club based in the northern Shoalhaven and is one of the smallest clubs in Australian baseball. They are the youngest club participating in the Illawarra Baseball League.
Despite being the youngest side in the league, the side has avoided being placed in the Minor League.
In previous seasons, the Mariners have fielded only two teams in the three team major league. This allowed the club to develop quickly and in the 2014 season, the Mariners fielded three teams in the Illawarra Senior Baseball League.
The Mariners originally played out of Fred Finch Park in Berkeley, Wollongong. However on 24 July 2014, the Mariners started playing at their long awaited home at the South Nowra Soccer Complex, which will be an exclusive baseball facility.
The Mariners are also developing their Junior Sides, with the new Junior Season starting with Come and Try Days in September 2014 for children ages between 4 and 14. For a number of years the Mariners Juniors have trained and played on Friday evenings with the season running from October to March.
The Mariners also fielded their first ever Junior side in the Illawarra Junior Baseball League in 2013/14, with their U12's Little League finishing a respectable 3rd in their debut season.
