The Fitzroy Baseball Club, known as the Fitzroy Lions, is a baseball club founded in 1889 to represent the inner Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy, Victoria. The club was a founding member of the Victorian Baseball League, Victoria's first organised baseball competition.
Fitzroy has won 16 Division 1 championships and currently has seven senior teams competing in the Baseball Victoria Summer League, as well as junior sides representing the club at every age level.
Several notable cricketers played for Fitzroy early in the club's history including cricketer Bill Ponsford who played for Fitzroy from 1913 to 1934 and the Harvey brothers (Neil, Merv, Mick, Ray, Harold and Brian) who played from the 1930s to the 1960s
