The tournament will be held in October 2014 at Ipswich, Queensland, Australia. It will be called theswitchMONEYBALL tournament- Open Men's and Over 40's Masters Men's.

 $1000 to home run contest winner thanks to Plus Fitness 24/7 Windsor.


At theswitchMONEYBALL we want to work out who the real hitters are. And we are prepared to put our money where our mouth is.

How does $1000 cold hard cash sound for the winner of the home run contest????

That’s right. At theswitchMONEYBALL we are offering $1000 cash to the winner of the inaugural home run contest. One hitter (and pitcher) from each team will be nominated at the team’s discretion. Both Open Men’s and Master’s combined. One hitter taking home one thousand dollars!

We aim to break a few records in hosting this milestone event and this is another example of exactly just how we are going to do that. Never before has a $1000 individual prize purse been on offer in Australia, so this is your chance to prove you are truly the home run king!

All this has been made possible by our first major sponsor Plus Fitness 24/7 Windsor. Plus Fitness 24/7 is a brand new fully equipped gym conveniently located just off Lutwyche Rd at Windsor, Brisbane. Plus Fitness Gyms have gained a reputation as Australia’s friendliest fitness centres. Looking to get in shape? Want more power before the home run contest? Visit .
