Age Definition

A player’s division assignment is based on his age as of April 30 of the following year. Example: If a player will turn 11 on March 20, 2018 he would normally play in the Bronco division for the 2017 fall season. A player who wishes to play in an older division may do so. Only under very limited circumstances, and only with full board approval, is a player allowed to play in a younger division.

Game Scheduling

Teams are generally scheduled for no more than two games each week. Games are scheduled on weekday evenings and on Saturday mornings, occasionally on Saturday afternoons or evenings.  Pee-wee games are normally on Saturday mornings at 8:00. Shetland weekday games are only at 5:30pm.  We normally suspend play for about one week during the Chandler school fall break.

Pee-wee Division (ages 3 - 4)
This is the first step in learning and playing baseball. The main objective is to have fun and learn the fundamentals - catching, throwing, hitting & base running. Only a tee is used for hitting. Only 6-8 players per team. Every player bats and plays the field. The inning is over after all players have batted. No strikeouts, outs recorded or scores kept. Coaches can elect to have players always be safe to teach base running. Parents are encouraged to be in the field to assist their child. All games played on Saturday mornings. As much as possible teams are formed by neighborhood or by coach request.

Shetland Division (ages 5 - 6)
Players normally use a Tee to hit the ball off of, but are allowed the option of taking swings at a pitching machine. Emphasis is on learning the game and not meant to be competitive. Scorebooks are used but only to keep track of runs scored and the batting order; scores are not announced or recorded. All players are allowed in the field on defense and coaches are allowed to be on the field to advise them. Play stops when an infielder holds up the ball. On offense all players bat. A team bats until three outs are recorded or six runs are scored. As much as possible teams are formed by neighborhood or by coach request.

Pinto Division (ages 7 - 8)
A pitching machine is used to get the players familiar with hitting a pitched ball. Like T-ball the emphasis is on learning the game and the games should only be mildly competitive. To limit runaway scores a team which is ahead is only allowed to score six runs each inning. A team is allowed ten players and one coach on defense. Play stops when an infielder holds up the ball. On offense all players are put in the batting order and are allowed five swings at the ball. Catching equipment is used but primarily to get players used to it. As much as possible teams are formed by neighborhood or by coach request.

Mustang Division (ages 9 - 10)
First level of play at which real baseball is played. Players are taught pitching, catching, leadoffs, stealing, etc. Coaches may bring in an entire team or a partial team. No standings are kept and we try to schedule games between teams of equal strength as much as possible.

Bronco Division (ages 11 - 12)
Bases are at 70 feet; pitching distance is at 50 feet. Coaches may bring in an entire team or a partial team. No standings are kept and we try to schedule games between teams of equal strength as much as possible.

Pony Division (ages 13 - 14)
Bases are at 80 feet; pitching distance is at 54 feet. Coaches may bring in an entire team or a partial team. No standings are kept and we try to schedule games between teams of equal strength as much as possible. Games may also be scheduled against other PONY leagues in the valley (e.g. Ahwatukee, Scottsdale, Queen Creek).

Colt Division (ages 15 - 18)
A full major league size diamond is used. Coaches may bring in an entire team or a partial team. No standings are kept and we try to schedule games between teams of equal strength as much as possible. Games may also be scheduled against other PONY leagues in the valley (e.g. Ahwatukee, Scottsdale, Queen Creek).
