ANNOUNCEMENTS AND INFO ABOUT LEAGUE:

  • Registration will open December 1st (and will close in mid-February).   On December 1st there will be a link on this page for you to register.  So check back.  If you need a reminder on MTYAA age rules, here is an MTYAA Age Timeline.

  • Hey Coach - If you want to coach, please fill out the Coaching Application as soon as possible (even if you are a returning coach).  This allows us to do background checks and it helps our directors plan their leagues.

  • New Bat Rules - All national youth baseball organizations will be changing their bat safety standards starting January 1, 2018.  See the following link for details and an approved bat list: NEW BAT RULES

  • New League Age Rules - In 2016, PONY national adjusted the league age to be the child's age on August 31st instead of April 30th.  In recent years, MTYAA has grandfathered in the old rule and allowed kids born between April 30th and August 31st to choose whether to play up or down.  Starting in 2019, MTYAA official league age will match the PONY national rules.  For 2018, we strongly encourage parents to register their kids according to the national rules but will still honor our old rules for this one last year.  For more details on the national age rules and to see an age chart, see here: PONY NATIONAL AGE RULES AND AGE CHART  

We want to say thank you for visiting the league site today. We want to welcome you and your family to the league and hope that you too will help us carry on our tradition of sport and community as we have done for over 30 years in Mountlake Terrace. Please allow us to introduce you to the league.

WHAT MAKES PONY DIFFERENT FROM LITTLE LEAGUE?

The primary features that distinguish Pony baseball from Little League baseball are those of a two year age bracket system and scaled diamonds. Additionally, PONY teaches lead offs and base stealing starting at age 9 (Mustang Division), or earlier while pitchers learn pick off moves and holding runners on base to counter the potential steal. 

The scaling of the base paths, pitching distances and location of the outfield fences are proportional to the physical abilities of different age groups.

 

SEASON

Practices start the beginning of March and games begin in April. Season ends mid-June.

Practices and games are held at fields rented through the City of Brier and Mountlake Terrace.

Bronco:
