A Bit About Pony Baseball

Pony Baseball started with 6 teams in Washington Pennsylvania in
1951. Now nearly 30,000 teams, over 450,000 players,
and 4,000 leagues make up Pony Baseball in almost
30 different countries.

Pony Baseball not only teaches young players fundamental skills of
the game, preparing them for play at the high school level; but
also teaches them valuable life skill that will help them develop
into adults that can make a contribution to society.

Pony baseball plays under regulation baseball rules, the
differences are that the bases are 80 feet and pitching
distance 56. Games are 7 innings. There is a 10 run rule after
5 innings of play.

Pitchers are allowed to throw up to 10 innings a week,
and no more than 7 innings in any one 24 hour period.
One pitch thrown in any inning constitutes one whole
inning pitched.
