Pony Baseball Spring 2023 Age Eligibility

During the 2022 PONY International Board of Directors meeting, a decision was reached to change the date for determining player eligibility from August 31 to April 30. The rule change will take effect immediately. This decision was reached after careful consideration of input from leagues, parents, coaches and other sources important in the decision-making process.

There will be no loss of eligibility for any participants in the 2023 season, essentially the PONY program will be four (4) months older starting in 2023.  Players born in the months of May, June, July, and August will have a choice of whether to stay in their respective age groups or move up into an older age group with their former teammates.

Division Age Rule

All players will be mandated to play at their player age level and all exceptions will be required to be approved by the board of directors of Olive Pony baseball.

UPCOMING RULE CHANGES:

BAT RULE

As will be stated in Section 8 “Equipment,” in conjunction with USA Baseball and its other participating National Member Organizations, PONY Baseball has adopted the new USA Baseball Bat Standard (USABat).

Effective January 1, 2018, with the exception of the -3 bat (BBCOR certified), all other 2-1/4” and 2-5/8” minus factor bats (-5, -7, -9, etc.) must be certified with the USABat licensing stamp on the bat in order to be used for league and tournament play. 2-1/4” and 2-5/8” minus factor bats (-5, -7, -9, etc.) used in 2017 will be illegal to use in 2018.

2-¾” barrel bats are prohibited in all divisions of PONY Baseball. Colt 16U and Palomino 18U players are only allowed to use 2-⅝” -3 BBCOR certified bats. Thorobred 23U players must use wooden bats only as specified by Major League Baseball.

If using a tee ball bat manufactured prior to 2018, these bat must carry the USA Baseball mark accompanied by the following text: “Only For Use With Approved Tee Ball Bat.” If you already have a tee ball bat you would like to continue using, all you have to do is purchase a USA Bat sticker directly from USABB and place it on your bat.
