Alumni Day = Success

Generations of Cynics convened at sunny Petersham Oval for the inaugural Alumni Day on July 15th. Numerous war stories were told and beverages consumed; whilst the current Sydney Uni class won two-out-of-three and cemented 2nd and 3rd Grade playoff spots.


  • Many Past Players/Coaches/Members in attendance, representing decades: 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's; including two Cynics from our famous 1955 Melbourne inter-varsity team, Ted Yarad and Eric Stockdale.
  • Array of Sydney University Baseball uniforms/clothing from the ages, including: a duck-themed inter-varsity t-shirt pre-dating the 'Cynics' moniker; a battle-worn all-white 'SU' game jersey; and a navy Cynic's retro bomber jacket that was the envy of all the current players.
  • BA Chairman and Olympian, David Hynes, turning guest DJ and pumping 90's Electronica.
  • The next generation of Cynics running on the field and playing catch with their dads.

Special thanks to our sponsor The West Village Petersham for supplying the beverages, plus, Hartley Anderson and our Executive Committee for their organisation efforts.
