The Byfleet Hawks are a professional baseball team located in Byfleet, Ianoia. They are the western-most team of the founding members and officially the tenth – and last – team accepted entry to the I-League. The team was formed in 1896 by Crispin Busby who regularly travelled to Koana Islands for his business in the fishing industry.
Byfleet’s nickname, the Hawks, is in homage to BK Humoor 1893, whom Busby used to attend games when they participated in the Humoor Baseball Ligan.
The team plays out of Stony Gait, a small 27,000-seater that has an oddity in left field. A giant Australian gum tree overhangs the left field fence that is only 60cm tall to accommodate the trees branches.
