A spokesperson said the games were not just about sports, but also an opportunity to have a reunion with old friends.
‘Like many of the teams that compete in the Masters Games, Norths 90s is made up of old mates and baseball legends that now reside throughout NSW and Queensland,’ the spokesperson said.
‘The team first came to fame when they took home the 1992 and 1993 Far North Coast Baseball grand finals for Norths.
‘Since then, many members have left the region, but every two years the team reunites for the Masters Games and a chance to relive the glory days.
This year will mark the sixth Masters Games for Norths 90s.
Founding Norths member Dave Parson said former members were spread from Townsville to Sydney ‘so it’s great to have this opportunity to get everyone in the same place at the same time’.
Other sports included in the games are cricket, swimming, lawn bowls, dressage, soccer, golf, hockey, netball, running, oztag, rugby 7s and softball, and there are fitness challenges and a mini-olympics.
