Although the first formal report noting the playing of Baseball and detailing the fortunes of the two teams formed that year appeared in Pegasus in 1963, a photograph from the A L Rentoul Album depicts a much earlier flirtation with the sport in 1922.

In 1974, 20 boys played baseball, winning the Geelong Baseball Associations’ Under16 Premiership that year. In 1981 and 1982 baseball was also played as a girls’ sport. Baseball ceased to be listed in Pegasus as a sport after 1982.
