FAQs

What does PONY stand for?

PONY is taken from the first letters of each word in the slogan, "Protect Our Nation's Youth."

What is your COVID-19 plan?

Lancaster Pony Baseball will require a waiver to physically be signed at the time of evaluations for each player to participate in the Spring 2021 season.  Players will not be allowed to participate in any Lancaster Pony Baseball activities until the Release of Liability Waiver is signed and returned.  COVID-19 Release of Liability Waivers will be emailed to all registered players before evaluations.  Parents should not bring their player to any events if they display any symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has displayed symptoms or been diagnosed with COVID-19.  Protocols will be aligned with the CDC requirements.

No. This is a baseball only league. We do however encourage girls to play.
