Hunter Eagles

From BR Bullpen

The Hunter Eagles played four years in the Australian Baseball League. They were never successful, with a 52-169 composite record and a ERA of 7.84 (under 8.00 only once). They joined the ABL in the 1994-1995 season and went 17-47, good for last place; one bright spot was that Geoff Blum won the league's Gold Glove Award. In their second year of play, the Eagles did their worst, 7-39. Their performance enabled 6 of the other 7 teams to finish at .500 or better. They actually moved out of last in 1996-1997 with a 18-40 record, one game ahead of the Melbourne Reds. They wrapped up in the 1997-1998 Australian Baseball League, finishing 10-43, though Rodney Van Buizen won Rookie of the Year honors. They never had a first-team All-Star.
