Monterrey, Mexico, Wins Mexico Zone

WASHINGTON, PA (June 21, 2023) - Monterrey, Mexico, has won PONY Baseball’s Mexico Zone to qualify for the 2023 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series.

The run to the World Series was started by Monterrey going undefeated in the state championship. Momentum was carried over into the national championship where Monterrey stayed undefeated and booked a trip to Washington, Pennsylvania.

Coach Enrique Hinojosa was pleased with his team’s performance in the zone tournament, and overall the past couple of years.

“It has been great. Last year we lost the first game in the national championship, and won all the following games except for the championship game of last year’s PONY League World Series.”

It’s a story of reunion for Monterrey in Washington, Pennsylvania, as they return as last year’s World Series runner-ups. In addition to the experience three returning players gained last year in the PONY League World Series, five players hail from last year’s PONY-13 League World Series runner-up team as well. 

The coaching staff made up of Gerardo Leal, a former professional baseball pitcher, Miguel Alejandro, and Hinojosa believe their team is strong enough to compete for the title once again.

“Both teams lost the championship game in each tournament so they are all very motivated to come back to try to win it all this year,” said Hinojosa. “We have great pitching, starters and relievers. Similar to last year, this is our strength.”

Monterrey has a long history with PONY, being the first international team to play in the series in 1959. Their rich history is also filled with success as Monterrey was the 1972 PONY League World Series Champions.

Monterrey gets a first round bye and will play its first game of the 2023 tournament against the winner of the Caribbean Zone and East Zone match-up at 1:00PM/ET on August 13 at Lew Hays PONY Field in Washington, Pennsylvania.
