8 & Under

PONY Baseball Pinto 8 and Under Division division will utilize a Wheeled Pitching Machine for all games. All ages are calculated based on the PONY Baseball age chart.


10 & Under

Beginning with MUSTANG 10U™ LEAGUE Baseball, the players are playing real baseball in accordance with The Rules of Major League Baseball as well as specific PONY rules that are in place to supersede the MLB rules where appropriate such as pitching, substitution, re-entry, etc. 


12 & Under

BRONCO 12U™ LEAGUE is a continuation of the philosophy to fit the diamond to the physical potential of the players. The bases and pitching distances are scaled up slightly from MUSTANG 10U™ LEAGUE. The transition diamond used in BRONCO 12U™ LEAGUE, permits infielders and outfielders to select their defensive positions in relation to the anticipated speed of the ball when they field it.


14 & Under

PONY 14U™ LEAGUE is the transition league that takes players from the "kid" leagues to "young adult" status. It permits a player to play on a diamond tailored to his size and capability rather than being moved to one with twice the playing area in a single year. PONY 14U™ LEAGUE is specifically designed for the player in those very formative early-teen years. 


18 & Under
