Tustin Youth Baseball Association is proud to sponsor PONY baseball in the city of Tustin. PONY is a fun baseball program for kids from age 4 to 14 years old of all skill levels.
Pony is complete baseball and allows you to lead off by age 9, base stealing by age 7, and more Major League Baseball action than any other league around.
No matter what your skill level is, Tustin Pony has a division for you. If you are looking for recreational play or a more challenging baseball experience in our Select league, Tustin Pony is the best place to improve your skills in a fun, family environment.
A Day in the Life at Tustin Pony Baseball
As we reflect on the 2022 Spring Season, we are reminded of all the people that have stepped up to help in some way. The baseball season wouldn't be possible without you - parents, coaches, umpires, sponsors, and the Tustin Pony Baseball Board Members. Thank you! Your dedication to our baseball program is greatly appreciated.
At Tustin Pony, it is easy to see that one thing still holds true -- it's about the kids. There's nothing more gratifying than to see a smile on the face of one of our players as they experience success on the field or build friendships with their teammates. The kids are the fundamental reason we spend countless hours trying to provide the best experience as possible.
We had a great turnout this year with over 270 registered players and Tustin Pony reigning supreme in 3 divisions. Tustin Pony won the gold in Shetland (Royals), Pinto (Reds), and Pony (Dodgers). They each brought in a Championship title in their divisions in our 6 league interlock.
Now that the offseason is here, field improvements will begin kicking off. Thanks to the money raised at league hosted events, donations from sponsors and our league families.
Our goals this offseason include - rehab on field 2 and 6, replacing the backboards on fields 3 - 5, replacing the fence caps on fields 2 and 3, installing fencing on field 4, and repairing the backstop fence on field 3 that was damaged by wind and age. It is also in the plan to add equipment such L screens and box screens for use at practices.
Thank you to all the players, coaches, and parents for participating this season. We truly treasure all of our volunteers and appreciate everything they have done to provide our players and families with a rewarding and successful baseball season. Again, we thank you.
We would also like to thank all of the sponsors that graciously donated this season. A huge THANK YOU to Round Table Pizza in Tustin and Chick-Fil-A at the District for hosting fundraising events for Tustin Pony.
Movie night was a great way to end a fantastic and successful 2021 Fall season. All of our teams had winning seasons with 3 of our teams going undefeated – Pinto Longhorns, Mustang Dirtbags, and the Bronco Panthers.
We hope everyone had a great season and we hope to see everyone back in the Spring. We are constantly looking to improve and grow the love of the sport, if you have any suggestions or would like to volunteer, please reach out to our Vice President – Armando Larraga.
Go Tustin Pony!
Thank you to all of the coaches, players, and parents for an amazing season. It was great to see all of the players back on the field after a year off.
Tustin Pony had some amazing teams this season and with 2 almost going undefeated.
We look forward to seeing everyone again in the fall!
To those who are on the front lines, working to keep our communities healthy and safe, we THANK YOU! Additionally, a big thank you for our Tustin Pony families for your abundance of patience as we work through the unprecedented process of navigating and securing the future of baseball for our communities’ youth.
We have finally received confirmation from the district regarding the use of our fields. Unfortunately, our Spring 2020 season will be canceled since the suspension of our Tustin Unified School District field permits does not allow enough time for us to put the season back together. The ongoing uncertainty around the virus is likely to cause continued delays, and we do not want to push for a return until we have more information regarding the safety of our families.
Our focus is on coming back in Spring 2021 strong and ready to play ball. We are remaining hopeful that we will gain access to the fields later this summer to plan some fun events, coaching clinics, and activities where we can control social distancing on a smaller scale- stay tuned for more information regarding upcoming opportunities.
We are planning a small event to distribute pictures and for your players to see your coaches on Sunday 6/28/2020. Look for another communication and social media post regarding this event. (this event will keep social distancing queues)
Across the country, small youth sports leagues, like ours, have been severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. As a non-profit, volunteer dependent organization, Tustin Pony faces the same struggles as many of these leagues. Our league incurs expenses to support a season before it begins, such as: uniforms, pictures, field usage, PONY affiliation fees, field maintenance, equipment, insurance, and background checks. Beyond that, typical season expenses include umpire fees, baseballs, chalk, tools, repairs, just to name a few. Our league has managed to stay active thanks to registration fees, sponsorships, and by hosting tournaments. The timing of this shutdown has resulted in us canceling activities that we depend on to keep the league going.
Tustin Pony Board of Directors
Another season has come and gone. The 2019 spring season was a wonderful ride filled with excitement, hard work, perseverance, and growth. Our players showed remarkable confidence in themselves, their teammates, and in their coaches. At the end of the day, win or lose, as long as the players are having fun and learning, that is what truly matters.
We would like to thank all of the players, coaches, umpires, and parents for making this season a memorable one. Tustin Pony is growing and we are thrilled to be a part of it. Every season we look forward to reuniting with old friends and building new long lasting friendships. Every season is a learning experience, not only for the players, but for the league as well. The Tustin Pony board has wild ideas and big plans for the future. The upcoming seasons will be exciting!!
As a league we treasure all of our volunteers and appreciate everything they have done to provide our players and families with a rewarding and successful season.
We would also like to thank all of our sponsors that supported Tustin Pony Baseball this season. With the help of our sponsors we were able to make some much needed repairs and improvements to the field this season. We completely resurfaced the Mighty Mite Field, Bronco Field, and added screens to the Shetland field. We purchased a new drag for field maintenance and were able to tend to a few other minor (but much needed) repairs. Thank you Sponsors for ensuring that the Tustin Pony baseball players have a safe and comfortable field that they can be proud to call their Home Field! Without you, none of this would be possible!!
Again, we thank everyone involved in making Tustin Pony great!
We hope to see you again in the Fall!
