October 2017 PONY Baseball voted to change the age determination date from April 30th to August 31st effective in the Spring 2018. The CMYBA board has decided to start this change at the Shetland level (6 year olds and younger, 2011 birth year) and let it work its way up over the years.
Unfortunately our 14 year old players that will turn 15 before August 31st, 2018 will not be able to tryout for the PONY World Series Team, we cannot change anything that is PONY sanctioned but we are able to control the impact of this change within our organization. All 14 year old players are permitted to play Pony level rec and Pony level travel baseball with CMYBA next season. The 14s are only affected by the new age cut off when trying out for the Pony League World Series team.
