The Canberra Cavalry has been re-branded for its 10th season, but perhaps the playing roster looms as the most exciting news for the ABL campaign.
Having signed two new pitchers, and with another star signing to be unveiled next week, the Cavalry is hoping an injection of talent can take the side to an ABL title.
Cavalry chief executive Donn McMichael said the team's culture played an important part in luring new players to the capital.
"Word-of-mouth is really strong for us, particularly in the [independent] ball in the US, but also in Japan," McMichael said.
"We've had players [Shota] Imanaga and [Tomoya] Mikami go back to Japan and say how much they enjoyed themselves."
The Cavalry's success, however, has been built on a strong production line of Canberra talent since the team won an ABL licence in 2010.
One of those players is Kyle Perkins, who has been with the Cavalry for every season since the ABL started.
The 28-year-old catcher is amazed at how far the league has come during that time and believes the Cavalry is setting the benchmark in the competition.
"To evolve as a league and as Australian players we need to push the boundaries and I think we are on the forefront of that," Perkins said.
"Hopefully we can continue that this year and we bring in some really strong talent and we go all the way."
The Cavalry will celebrate its 10th season with a new modern look, complete with a special 10-year anniversary logo.
