Teams

 

 PONY Baseball is divided into 6 age groups that are as follows: 

 

Shetland

 

(AGES 5-6)... Teaching the basics, the Shetland division is the first baseball experience for most of its participants. Fundamentals and rules of the game are taught and players are encouraged to have fun. Bases are 50' and the ball is hit from a tee.

Practice will begin in April and teams will play an 8-10 game schedule ending in early June

 

 

Pinto

 

(AGES 7-8)... Expanding on the basics, Pinto continues to work with the young ones on fundamentals and rules of the game. Bases are 50' and the ball is pitched to players using a pitching machine or by the coach.

Practice will begin in March and teams will play a 12-15 game schedule ending in early June

 

Mustang

 (AGES 9-10)... The play is competitive and begins the players' training in the complete game of baseball. Includes most rules of play including pitching and catching, along with base stealing. Games are played on a 60' base path with a 44' pitching mound.

Practice will begin in March and teams will play about a 20 game schedule with an end of the season tournament in early June 

 

 
 
 
 
Bronco

(AGES 11-12)... Regulation baseball rules on a 70' base path field with a 48' pitching mound. The scaled fields of the Pony system allow the kids to develop skills without being overmatched by the field. All baseball rules apply to this league and the athletic skills of the young players really start to show.

Practice will begin in March and teams will play about a 25 game schedule with an end of the season tournament in early June

 

Pony

 

(AGES 13-14)... The original PONY program, providing play for youngsters on a field with a 54' mound and an 80' base path. The players are presented with increased exposure to the finer points of the game. MPB divides this level into Olympic (select) and Cascade (recreational) divisions. Both Cascade and Olympic teams play interleague schedules which will require some travel to neighboring leagues for games.

Practice will begin in winter and teams will play a 30-35 game schedule ending in mid-June
