Age determination date changed to April 30

The PONY Baseball and Softball International Board of Directors voted during its October 2022 board meeting to change the age determination date for baseball to April 30 effective for the 2023 baseball season. PONY sought input from volunteers, parents, and coaches that helped guide the PONY International Board of Directors to ultimately change the current age determination date for all divisions of PONY baseball to April 30.

“This has been an ongoing topic of discussion and debated since we changed the date back to August several years ago,” stated PONY President Abraham Key. “By changing the date, we will now align with a large majority of youth baseball organizations. Many PONY member organizations did not make the change years ago and this will help us realign our membership and ensure them additional opportunities in the PONY organization.”

There will be no loss of eligibility for any participants in the 2023 season. Essentially, the PONY program will be four (4) months older starting in 2023. Players born in the months of May, June, July and August will have a choice whether to stay in their respective age groups or move up into an older age group with their former teammates.
