Spring 2018 Newsletter

Where has time gone! May is here and all of our leagues are finishing up their regular season and some are in their playoffs, preparing for All Stars.
Below is a quick review of the rule changes that are in effect for 2018.

RULE CHANGES

Bats - All tee ball bats with the USA stamp or sticker are legal for Shetland 4, 5 & 6 only.
Stickers are available for purchase if you currently have a tee ball bat that does not have the USA stamp. We have stickers available for $2.00 each so do not order any online.

All one-piece wood bats are legal.

2 1/4” and 2 5/8” bats are legal in all divisions as described below:
1. If a 2 5/8” is a minus 3, it must be BBCOR certified and stamped on the bat.
2. All other 2 5/8” bats (minus 5, minus 7, etc), and the 2 1⁄4” bats must be certified with the USABat licensing mark stamped on the bat.(The mark will be etched on the bat). Stickers are not acceptable.
3. All bats will be subject to testing at any time. All bats will be tested at the Zone and World Series level tournaments. In the North Region all bats will be tested at the Open Tournament and at the Region level tournaments for Pinto 7 and above. Testing will be doneprior to the start of the tournaments.

Pitching - Pitch Smart will be used. The full chart is available on the PONY website or in the PONY rule books.

ALL STARS
The Presidents meetings were held last week and most of the all star teams are registered. There are still some questionable teams. We are working with the leagues to get firm numbers by May 15.

Please keep in mind the following:
- Players can only participate in ONE PONY League during the season. If you have players that are signed up with more than one league, they are ineligible to participate in All-Stars with ANY team. This is an issue every year.
- All players need Proof of Residence (utility, cable, etc), Medical Waiver, COPY of Birth Certificate or proof of birth.
- Dates for binder reviews and managers’ meetings are being finalized and will be posted soon.
- Your teams can expect travel to and from the Los Angeles, Riverside and/or Orange County areas for Super Region, Zone and some World Series Tournaments. Our Region tournaments for Shetland 6, Pinto 7 and Pinto 8 will be held at William S. Hart and the Mustang 9, Mustang, Bronco 11, Bronco, Pony 13 and Pony will be held at Camarillo. I realize these can be long commutes and there is no per-diem paid for the teams. Teams must be fully committed and should be prepared to bear the costs. Schedules are not adjusted to accommodate the teams that may have to drive further than others. Again, commitment from your players and coaching staff is a must.
- We recommend you begin notifying parents of the following rules that will be enforced during All Star Tournaments. These are just some of the rules that will be enforced but are the most common that are not followed. Notification to our parents prior to our All Star tournaments is our best avenue to help eliminate these problems. Enforcement during the regular season and Memorial Day weekend and pre-sanction tournaments will also help.
o No parents/siblings in the dugouts or field of play
o Discourage your parents from going to the dugouts to communicate with their children
o Allow the coaching staff to coach the team. They don’t need help. It is confusing
o Absolutely NO ALCOHOL
o Smoking in designated areas (if available) (City of LA has new ordinance banning smoking at all sporting events)
o Smokeless tobacco and E Type cigarettes are not allowed
o Remove unauthorized stickers on players’ helmets
o No artificial noisemakers (this includes boom boxes in this Region)
o Expect gate fees at all facilities – either pre-paid or actual gates
o Coach Pitch Bats are not allowed at any level

OPEN TOURNAMENT
Once again, we will be hosting an Open Tournament for all divisions Pinto 8 and up with three or more teams. It is a non-elimination tournament. This will be a mandatory tournament for all advance baseball teams and will start on or about June 21 in Camarillo. Please consider entering your teams that advanced to the Super Region and above last year. The winners in each division will receive byes to the Region level tournaments.
