The tournament is pool-play and your team is guaranteed three (3) games.
All teams will be seeded for Sunday bracket playoff games based on standings in pool play.
The enclosed tournament rules will apply to tournament play, see specific rules for your division. If a rule is not covered in these rules, then the PONY Baseball Tournament Rules will be used and all other basic baseball rules will be covered by the Official Rules of Baseball.
A coin-flip, usually 30 minutes prior to each game, will determine home team. Dugouts are first come, first served.
The Home team will keep the official score book. There will be an official game score sheet filled out and signed by each team’s manager following each game that will include the official record of players that pitched in the game and the number of innings pitched. The home team manager (or their score keeper) is responsible for having this score sheet completed and signed by both managers and the umpire.
Pitching rules will be strictly enforced. One out equals one third of an inning pitched.
Please remember that these baseball games are played for the enjoyment and growth of our children.
Smoking is also prohibited on all school property, and alcohol is prohibited on all of the fields.
Personal B-B-Q’s are also prohibited at any tournament field, park or surrounding area.
No pets please.
Please respect the opinions and calls of the umpires and do not use abusive or foul language toward umpires, coaches or players. Anyone using abusive or foul language may be asked to leave the field, and if such conduct continues, the offending team may be subject to forfeiture of the game.
Amplified music is not allowed at the fields.
Lastly, please take the time to clean up your dugout area after your games.
