My name is Eric Balnar. Welcome to my portfolio.

I am currently the Manager of Media, Broadcast and Content for Baseball in Australia.

 

I am a play-by-play voice and writer for Baseball, Softball and Ice Hockey.

Born and raised in Canada, I moved to Australia in 2014. I'm now an Australian citizen. I have a decade of game-calling experience.

I've broadcast games for audiences all around the world on Fox Sports, NBC Regional Sports, AT&T SportsNet, Kayo, SBS, NITV, Channell 44, Channel 31, ondemand.baseball.com.au and other digital platforms. I've also called international baseball for the English feed at the 2023 Asian Professional Baseball Championships.

I've also broadcast national hockey for Adelaide Adrenaline and the Australian Ice Hockey League and the Adelaide Avalanche of the PHL.

I'm a sports storyteller, media manager, writer and communicator. From February 2023, I covered Team Australia at the World Baseball Classic working as the digital content and media lead. I cover the Adelaide Giants in the Australian Baseball League and the competition as a whole.

Outside of the broadcast booth, I live an active lifestyle filled
with camping trips, hikes around the world, surfing, golf and salsa dancing.

If you check out the Baseball.com.au website + socials, Team Australia social media accounts and the Australian Baseball League, I'm the guy who runs them.

I look forward to meeting you!
