San Diego PONY teams received the opportunity to enjoy the San Diego Padres' first Youth Baseball Challenge at Petco Park this past Saturday. The early morning event was a fun-filled, competitive Wiffle Ball Tournament as part of Major League Baseball's Youth Baseball Challenge during the World Baseball Classic.
 
The tournament was for youth baseball players between the ages of 9 and 12 years old with the following teams participating:
 
PONY Baseball (Eastlake PONY and San Diego Competitive PONY combined)
Boy's and Girl's Club of San Diego
Boy's and Girl's Club of Tijuana, MX
Military Families Team (Combination of boys and girls from the San Diego area)
 
PONY Baseball and the Military Family team faced off in the Championship game with the Military Family team defeating the young squad of PONY players 5-2.
 
Fun was had by all of the boys and girls and family members. Additionally, all family members received tickets to the WBC game between Puerto Rico and Venezuela on Saturday afternoon.
 
A special thank you goes out to Connor Novak, Manager of Community Outreach, Play Ball (San Diego Padres) and the entire staff of Padre personnel for hosting this great event.
