The Claxton Shield is an annual event held by the Australian Baseball Federation and is competed for by South Australia, Western Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and Australian Provincial.
Throughout the 90's the Shield was awarded to the winner of the Australian Baseball League(89-99) and then later from 2000-2001 to the winner of the International Baseball League of Australia.
