Just a few weeks into winter, here’s another chance to look ahead to spring – West Seattle Baseball has begun registration for the Spring 2013 PONY Baseball season. Here’s the announcement from Fritz Araya:
West Seattle Baseball, longtime youth-sports organization in West Seattle created from the merger of West Seattle Pee Wee and Southwest Pony Baseball, announces the opening of priority registration for youth baseball for the 2013 season. The following divisions are open for registration.
Shetland (ages 5-6)
Pinto (ages 7-8)
Mustang (ages 9-10)
Bronco (ages 11-12)
Pony (ages 13-14)
The announcement continues ahead:
Registration is available online at the West Seattle Baseball site: westseattlebaseball.com.
Early registration saves you money. West Seattle Baseball does not draft players until Bronco division for ages 11 and up. Everybody 10 and under has a good chance of playing with their friends. The earlier you register the better that chance.
West Seattle Baseball is a 100% volunteer organization dedicated to teaching kids the game of baseball and giving them opportunities to get out on the diamond.
In addition to regular season play, all kids ages 7 and older participate in post-season tournaments.
Those kids wanting to continue playing have opportunities to play baseball well into the summer in programs such as All Star programs for ages 8-12 years old as well as summer recreation programs including the West Seattle Crush and Summer Nights at the Pee Wee fields.
West Seattle Baseball hosts several summer all-star tournaments in West Seattle featuring some of the top teams in Western Washington.
West Seattle Baseball welcomes players of all experience levels. West Seattle Baseball is proudly affiliated with the national PONY Baseball organization. Our goals include teaching the fundamentals of baseball and good sportsmanship while building a sense of community among players and their families.
Practices begin in March, and the West Seattle Baseball regular season runs from the beginning of April to early June.
