Palmview, TX, wins PONY South Zone

WASHINGTON, PA (August 2, 2023) - Palmview, Texas, has won PONY Baseball’s South Zone to qualify for the 2023 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series.

This is the second time Palmview has qualified for the Series. Their first appearance was last year at the 2022 World Series where they finished tournament play with a 1-2 record.

Palmview went undefeated in five games in South Zone play, defeating Texas Heat 4-1, Nasa Green 10-0, Church Point 12-1, and Texas Heat 9-2, before taking down NASA Orange 6-5 in the Championship.

Head Coach Ruben Lopez is banking on team chemistry to lead them to the title.

“Our team is very well rounded. I would say our biggest strength is team chemistry and the boys backing each other up. We have great communication and the boys are on the same page,” said Lopez.

Last year at the PONY-13 World Series in Modesto, California, this same squad took home the title over Monterrey, Mexico. Both teams are in this year’s 2023 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series.

“It's an honor to represent the South Zone, the Rio Grande Valley, and Palmview,” said Lopez. “We know this is a great tournament and we have to play our best to make it to the end. We are very excited to be here.”

Palmview, Texas, will play Bay County, Michigan, in the opening game of the series August 11 at 4:30PM/EST at Lew Hays PONY Field in Washington, Pennsylvania.
