Belfast North Stars

The Belfast Northstars are the only Northern Ireland representatives in the Baseball Ireland adult league.
An amateur club, the Northstars play their home games at Henry Jones Field in Castlereagh, East Belfast.

The Belfast Northstars were formed in September 1996 when 10 players split away from the former Belfast Blue Sox. The Blue Sox had been affiliated with baseball in Britain, but traveling to games and hosting visiting teams became problematic.

Gerry Long, from Los Angeles, was installed as the club's first coach and along with a core of players set about establishing the Northstars as a team and baseball as a sport in Northern Ireland. The new team quickly became affiliated to Baseball Ireland.
