Pony Baseball Age Chart - 2020

During the 2016 PONY International Board of Directors meeting, a decision was reached to change the date for determining player eligibility from April 30 to August 31. The rule change will take effect at the start of the 2018 PONY Baseball season. This decision was reached after careful consideration of input from leagues, parents, coaches and other sources important in the decision-making process. By making our program younger, all players will be competing on a level playing field. This change will ensure all PONY participants will play in their true age group.

Note on Fall Ball: PONY encourages leagues to move kids up in the Fall so they can prepare for the Spring season. We follow that guideline which is why we move kids up an age group in the Fall rather than the Spring.

Determining which division you play in is easy. What is your childs age on the date below? Check the chart for the corresponding division.
