History

Baseball found its way to South Africa just before the First World War. Baseball started in 1889 on the Goldfields of the Witwatersrand (Gauteng). American gold miners who worked on the Crown Mines and City Deep shafts were responsible for starting the game in South Africa and the Giants Baseball Club originated out of the Crown Mines team. The Transvaal Baseball Association was formed in 1905 with Wanderers being one of the first clubs.
