The PONY sanctioned tournaments in Walnut begin this Thursday, June 26th on all three fields at Creekside Park. All three tournaments will feature Walnut all-star teams for their respective age groups. The Pinto 7U Region tournament will be played on the Shetland field and our 7U team will start play on Friday at 5pm against the winner of the La Canada/West Covina Red game. Like all of the PONY tournaments this weekend, it is a double elimination tournament. Also, a another quick tip about PONY sanctioned tournaments, time limits do NOT apply. All games must be played out till there is a winner or one team is leading by 10 runs or more after four innings (5 innings in Bronco and above).
The Mustang Section 2 tournament is also here and will be on the south field. All games from that tournament will be live streamed here. Our 10U team will also start play on Friday at 5pm against the winner of the Monrovia/West Covina Blue game . The 10’s lost on Monday night at the District 1 tournament to Charter Oak Gold 6 to 3. The good news is if they had won that tournament, they would not have played at home this week.
On the north field will be the Bronco Section 2 tournament. Our 12U team will open up that tournament on Thursday at 5:15pm against La Canada. The 12’s will need to win or finish second in this tournament to advance to the region. This game and all games will be scorecast and can be followed on their tournament pages or from the scoreboard slider on the home page of this web site. Also, you can follow us on Twitter @WalnutPonyBB for all scores.
Other Walnut all-star teams also play this week. The Foal (Shetland-4) team will try and win their first game at the Shetland-4 Region against Anaheim. The Shetland-5 team is back in action at the Shetland-5 Region tournament against West Covina. The Pinto 8U team, after getting to skip sections, will play Thursday at the Pinto Region in West Covina against either San Gabriel or Whittier Navy. The Pony division’s 13U mysterious Walnut all-star team (picture still missing) will start play this week as well at the Pony-13 Region tournament in Glendora against El Monte on Friday at 5pm. Shetland 6U will play their third straight week of tournament at the Shetland Region in Pasadena on Friday against Monrovia Green.
