Travis Baird

D .O.B:    
25 July 1986
Western Bulldogs
2005 NAB AFL Draft Pick No. 46
2005 AFL Debut

After showing promise with the AFLQ Suncoast Lions as a midfielder and key position player, Travis was elevated to Brisbane’s senior list for two games in late 2005. After deciding not to spend another year on the Brisbane Lions rookie list, Travis was rewarded for his courageous decision when the Bulldogs selected him with their second pick (46th overall) in the 2005 NAB AFL Draft.

Travis spent much of his first season with the Western Bulldogs playing VFL before earning a spot in the senior side in round 16. At 192 cm, Travis has shown lots of promise in front of goal in just his 3 games for the season.

In 2007, Travis will be looking to add to his senior games, continuing his development as a key position player.
