Sunday 4th June 2017 "In the beginning of British Baseball, God created the Trojans, and all was good. Over the years and many championships later, God decided the Trojans needed to grow, so a second Trojan team was created and all was good. Then there was confusion, as there was only one team, yet in different ballparks at the same time, so the name Twojans was born. This in turn confused the Twojans, not knowing what to call their team mates and their style of play. Seeing their style of play and behaviour on the field, the Twojans started saying Onejan behaviour, and the name was born. The rest was history: No matter how many teams grew in the Trojan Baseball club, were to be only Trojans....Onejans, Twojans and all" - The Book of Trojans (Genesis 1.1)

The original team was formed in 1946 by ex-servicemen returning from the second world war. During the early years the team were on a very steep learning curve as the standard of baseball in the UK was extremely high. During the mid 70's and early 80's the Trojans won the British Championship 3 times and won their own division for nine consecutive years, at the time a British record. Winning ways returned to the Trojans in 2011 & 2012, becoming AAA National champions after losing out in the semi-final in 2010. In 2013 the Trojans once again made it to the AAA national Finals but were beaten by the London Metros. The current Liverpool Trojans are setting their own high standards and are keen to follow their predecessor's winning ways.
