Monterrey Wins Mexico Zone

WASHINGTON, PA (June 28, 2022) - Monterrey, MX, has won PONY Baseball’s Mexico Zone to qualify for the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series.
Mexico’s coach, Enrique Hinojosa, reports that his team is very excited to come play in the United States, and for many of the boys it will be their first international tournament.
“The team is really excited to come to the US to play against the best international teams and the best US teams,” Hinojosa said. “We know it is a great tournament and we know family and friends will be watching the team.”
Although Hinojosa wants his team to win, he hopes that all of his players have a fun and memorable experience, as playing in the World Series is truly a once in a lifetime experience.
Hinojosa believes that his team’s greatest strength is pitching, due to the number of pitchers the team carries on its roster.
“All of the players can pitch … with the exception of the catcher and shortstop,” Hinojosa said.
The team is continuing to prepare for the World Series by playing in other competitive tournaments, and is even playing in older age brackets to face stiffer competition.
This is Monterrey’s first appearance in the DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series since 1972 when the team defeated Honolulu, HI, 3-1 to earn the World Series title. In 1959, Monterrey was also the first team from outside the US to play in the World Series.
Monterrey will play its first game in the 2022 tournament against PONY’s West Zone champion at 1:00 PM/ET on Saturday, August 13, at Lew Hays PONY Field in Washington, PA.
