Covina, CA, Wins PONY West Zone

WASHINGTON, PA (August 7, 2023) - Covina, California, has won PONY Baseball’s West Zone to qualify for the 2023 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series.

Offense was not hard to find for Covina as it outscored opponents 48-5 en route to their undefeated West Zone tournament win.

Head Coach Jesse Chavez attributed Covina’s outstanding play to the team mentality with the players, coaches, and even parents.

“Our pitchers were not afraid to locate the ball because they knew that we have a very strong and fast defense. The boys baseball I.Q. is amazing. The boys will coach us from time to time if they see something we don't. It's amazing. Our coaching staff is amazing as well. We also have the best team mom ever. Thank you Liz,” said Chavez.

Covina is no stranger to World Series events as this same exact squad played in the PONY-13 World Series last year in Modesto, California. This will also be the fifth time Covina has qualified for the PONY World Series. Covina finished as the runner-up in 1968 and won the World Series in 1975, 1999, and 2017.

Chavez noted the excitement that his team is feeling ahead of the upcoming Series.

“This will definitely be one of the best highlights in our lives, being able to play on the same field against teams from across the world. The experience the boys and coaches will get in this tournament will be great. I just hope for the best and want to make sure everyone comes back home with a great story to tell.”

Covina, California, will open its tournament with a matchup against Youngstown, Ohio, on August 11 at 7:30PM/EST at Lew Hays PONY Field.
