The Australian Baseball League (ABL) is a professional baseball league in Australia. The league is governed by the Australian Baseball Federation (ABF), and is jointly funded by the ABF, National Baseball League (NBL) and the Australian Imperial Government. Established in 1987, with the Claxton Shield awarded to the champion team.
The current champions are the Perth Heat.
Because the ABL's season takes place from November through February, the ABL has several players who also play in the minor leagues in North America, making it similar to a winter league (although it is summer in Australia when the season takes place.)
