    Parents - Our "7U" baseball clinics will occur on the following Sunday dates:

    10/1

    The two hour clinics will run from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM. Players should wear athletic clothing and bring a baseball glove. A helmet and/or bat is also recommended but not required.

    This is our third season conducting Fall Ball clinics for our 7U players and its the best time to introduce and teach your youngsters basic baseball fundamentals and playing scrimmage games. This is a great event series. Don't forget to refer a friend so your player has a buddy to share the fun with!

    Upcoming PONY National Rule Changes

    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. 

    Upcoming PONY National Rule Changes

    Change Birth Date cut-off to August 31 (from April 30)

    This rule change goes in effect January 1st of 2018.  However, DPYB will implement this change for the fall 2017 season, as fall baseball is designed to be a developmental season that prepares players for the level and rules they intend to play in the spring season.  That means, several players may skip a level within our league for one season.

    As PONY is such an influential body, many leagues have or will be following suit and adjusting their age cutoff as well. 

    Why:  This age cut off better aligns with the school cut-off ages. Simply said, players with summer birthdays will become the younger players on the team vs. the oldest ones.

    NOTE:

    Players born during the month and year in the age chart shown below are eligible to play in the division indicated
