FAQ

  • What equipment do I need? 

Baseball attire, glove, water 

  • What if I cannot make it? 

Your child will be evaluated based on past tryouts and rated administratively 

  • Is there a makeup date set for Evals? 

No,  at this time this is the only date set 

  • How can I submit a Friend Request? 

Email your Commissioner / VP and submit the request. Please note we try hard to accommodate requests but cannot guarantee this is going to happen

  • When will I know the practice /game schedule? 

We try as hard as we can to get information to you as we get it. We need to get field allocations from the city which we don't get until after tryouts. Unfortunately we are unable to tell you now what day your child will have practices / games

  • Due to the new age chart, it is placing my child played in a lower division than what he played in the fall, can he play in his old age chart division?

PONY National is Changing Some Rules

Bat Changes 2018

BATS
In conjunction with USA Baseball and its other participating national member organizations, PONY Baseball has adopted the new USA Baseball bat standards (USABat).  Effective January 1, 2018, with the exception of -3 (BBCOR certified), all other minus factor bats (-5,-7,-9, etc..), must be YBBCOR certified with the USABat licensing stamp on the bat in order to be used for league and all-star play.  All bats without this stamp will be illegal and not be eligible to use during league play.  The new YBBCOR bats bearing the USABat licensing mark are expected to be offered in retail stores in September.

To find out more about the USABat standard click here.


Why:  Safety. USA Baseball's national member organizations believe that a wood-like performance standard will best provide for the long-term integrity of the game. These bats are made to mimic wood bats, lessening the "pop" factor and thus, reducing the potential injuries from hard hit balls, especially come-backers to pitchers. 

5/3/2018 - USA Baseball Decertification
The Easton Ghost X 30/20 YBB18GX10 and LL18GHX 30/20 2 5/8” has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard. This applies to the 30” (-10) length of the Ghost X YBB18GX10 and LL18GHX. All other certified lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X USABat remain approved for play.
