Baseball Registration

SEE BELOW for a LIST of ALL AVAILABLE DIVISIONS for SPRING BASEBALL 2023. 

You can Register by clicking the appropriate Register Now button below. If you have a question about the Divisions, please visit our Division Summary page.  If you have a question about Spring Baseball, please visit our About Spring Baseball page. And if you have additional questions about South Bay PONY Baseball, please explore the About SBP menu item above, including the Frequently Asked Questions page. 

Alternatively, you can register by clicking one of the buttons at the top right of the page. The Register button is for participants who do not yet have a South Bay PONY account on SportsConnect.  The Login button is for participants who already have a South Bay PONY account.

Please keep in mind that many of you have a different account on SportsConnect for AYSO or other rec sports leagues.  You will need a separate account here with South Bay PONY on SportsConnect. You can use the same email, and we recommend that you DO use the same email, but you will need a DIFFERENT Username.


WAITLIST


As South Bay PONY grows in popularity, we have had to limit the size of some of our Divisions. Factors requiring us to limit Divisions include available fields for practices and games, as well as available volunteers to coach teams. 

If a player is placed on the waitlist, we will do everything we can to place them on an appropriate team, in the order that they registered.  If a roster spot does become available, you will receive an email and will have 24 hours to pay the registration fee or the spot will be offered to the next player on the list. 


PRICING & DISCOUNTS

For the 2023 Spring Season, South Bay PONY Baseball will cost
 $215 for the Shetland American division, $245 for the Shetland National division, and $275 for the Pinto. Mustang, and Bronco, and $300 for the Pony divisions during Early Registration.

Early Registration ends November 30th.  The regular registration price will be $265/$295/$350/$375 respectively. 
Registration closes officially January 13th, however spaces are not guaranteed. Divisions may fill up and only accept wait list registrations. We will do our best to find a team for all players, however limited fields and limited coaches may restrict our capacity. 

Registration after January 13th incurs a $45 Late Fee (except for Shetland divisions). 

During the Spring season, families are required to work 2 hours in the Snack Stand for each player, up to a maximum of 4 hours. There is an option to buy out of the Snack Stand commitment for $200 per player, up to a maximum of 2 players. If you have 3 or more children, there is no need to work additional shifts or pay for additional buy outs, beyond the 4 hours for the 2 players. 

Available Programs

2023 Spring Baseball

Spring is the primary baseball season for South Bay PONY (SBP) Baseball. Boys and Girls, ages 4-14, from all over South Bay are invited to play. There is no experience necessary. Everyone makes a team and everyone is guaranteed playing time. We focus on developing people and athletes. Our mantra is "Process over Results". If we teach good fundamentals, good effort, and good sportsmanship then we have already achieved success and the victories on the field will come. You have no idea how fun and rewarding youth baseball can be until you have tried PONY Baseball.

Please note, PONY has changed the Age Determination Date for Spring 2021 to be April 30th (instead of August 31st). Age rules are strictly enforced in the Spring season. Players are assigned to a Division based on their age and there is no "playing up" or "playing down". Although due to the change in Age Determination Date, we will allow an exception for children born between May 1 and Aug 31 to "play up" one year. This will essentially allow players to stay in the same level they would have been in under the old rules. We recommend families adapt to the new age bands. We believe they are better for player development. But we will allow an exception in this one scenario.

To help ensure teams are balanced and games are competitive, players in the Pinto divisions and older must attend a mandatory evaluation session in January. After players are evaluated, a draft is held and teams created.

Addl Registration Information

TEAM FORMATION

In the Shetland Divisions, players can request to be on a team with their friends. Be sure to enter your friend requests during registration. You can go back to your registration form at any time before registration closes to adjust your requests. We will do our best to accommodate friend requests, but they are not guaranteed.  If one of the parents offers to be the head coach, that virtually guarantees that your group of friends will be able to play together (pending league approval for competitiveness). 

In the Pinto Divisions and older, we hold player evaluations in January and then run player drafts to create balanced teams and competitive divisions. While we'd all like to play with our friends, experience has shown us that it is better for player development if we have more balanced teams and competitive games. The kids will have a chance to play against all of their friends in the league, and they will have a chance to make some new friends on their team.   



REGISTRATION REFUNDS
During the Early Bird Registration period, registration fees are fully refundable.

During the Regular Registration period, registration fees are refundable minus a $45 processing fee.


After the Regular Registration period closes, registration fees are non-refundable. At that time we order equipment, order uniforms, start forming teams, and begin many of the logistical tasks that are necessary to get the season started on time.
