Just a reminder for anyone who plans to register for Walnut PONY Baseball this year and has not done so yet, the $10 discount for registering online will end this Friday night at midnight (that’s 12:00am January 18th). You can still register online for another week or at Saturday’s tryouts on January 18 or January 25 but you won’t get a $10 discount after this Friday. Visit the Registration page for more details.
Also, again, tryouts for the Shetland, Pinto, Mustang and Bronco divisions start this Saturday, January 18th, at Snow Creek Park. Please have your player bring a fielding glove and boys, wear a protective cup. If your player has a bat and batting helmet, please bring it, otherwise we will have a small supply of them or they will need to borrow one.
If you have already registered, check-in at the tables and the player will be given a number and label with that number and his/her last name and LEAGUE AGE (not his/her actual age, league age is however old he/she will be on April 30, 2014). The numbers are usually broken down into groups of 10 and when each group is called they will assemble in the dugout in order of their numbers (parents please help us out with this). Each group will bat, take infield and outfield before the next group is called to do the same. Once the player’s group is done, the player is done for the day. You only need to attend one of the try-outs.
The teams will be selected on February 1st and players can expect a call from their respective managers usually within a week of that date at the latest. ALL PLAYERS PLAY, the try-outs and draft are only to make the teams as even as possible. Practices will be scheduled and begin, uniforms passed out and opening day will be Saturday February 15, 2014. The game schedule will be released a week or two before opening day.
