Baseball Bat Requirements Reminder

Baseball Bat Requirements Reminder:

In conjunction with USA Baseball and its other participating national member organizations, PONY Baseball adopted the USA Baseball bat standard (USABat) on January 1, 2018.  Except for -3 (BBCOR certified), all other 2 1/4" and 2 5/8" barrel bats with a minus factor of (-5, -7, -9, etc.), must be USABat certified with the USABat licensing stamp on the bat in order to be used for league and tournament play.

There are also a small number of bats that have been decertified despite having the BBCOR or USABat stamp on them. This includes the popular Easton Ghost X 30/20 YBB18GX10 and LL18GHX 30/20 2 5/8” bats, but please check Pony Baseball's most up-to-date list.

Shetland Division players can continue to use bats purchased prior to this change as long as they are approved T-Ball bats.

What Division would I play in?
PONY BASEBALL AGE DETERMINATION DATE is AUGUST 31st.  Pony league age key can be found here.
 
Maltby Pony Baseball is divided into 5 age groups (Sept 1st birthday cutoff) that are as follows: 


Note:  If you think that your child is ready to play up a division please register for the division that they fall into and contact the Division Director of the division you would like to have your child play in.  The Director will follow up with you and discuss scheduling a tryout.

 

Shetland: (AGES 4, 5, & 6 (before Sept 1))... 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 coach-pitch or a tee. Practice will begin in March and teams will play an 8-10 game schedule ending in early June.

 

Pinto: (AGES 7-8 (before Sept 1))... Expanding on the basics, Pinto continues to work with the young ones on fundamentals and rules of the game. Games are played on 60' base paths and 40' pitching mound.  We play approximately the first half of the season as coach-pitch and then transition to player-pitch for the last half of the season. Practice will begin in early March and teams will play a 12-15 game schedule ending in mid June.  Limited local inter-league play.  All-star season for 8U continues through July.

 

Mustang:  (AGES 9-10 (before Sept 1))... 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 and dropped strike three rule.  Games are played on a 60' base paths with a 46' pitching mound.  Practice will begin in early March and teams will play about a 20 game schedule with an end of the season tournament in early June.  Limited local inter-league play.  All-star season for 9U/10U continues through July.

 

Bronco:  (AGES 11-12 (before Sept 1))... Regulation baseball rules on a 70' base paths field with a 50' pitching mound. The scaled fields of the Pony system allow the kids to develop skills without being over-matched 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 early March and teams will play about a 25 game schedule with an end of the season tournament in early June.  Limited local inter-league play.  All-star season for 11U/12U continues through July.

 

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.

Olympic division teams join the league as already assembled TEAMS.

Cascade division teams are selected just like our lower division teams (Bronco, Mustang, and Pinto); players register/sign-up as individuals via the registration link on this website, attend tryouts, and are assigned by the coaches to team(s).  Fees are paid at the time of registration to Maltby Pony Baseball via the website. 

Both Cascade and Olympic teams play inter-league 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.
