"RESPECT THE GAME!"

Pony/Babe Ruth baseball seeks to instill in its participants the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, discipline and respect for authority. It is our hope that the youth and young adults of the area will grow to be citizens whose adult lives will reflect those values.

It must be understood by parents as well as all volunteers that competitiveness will be automatically generated in a natural form by all of the participants both players and fans. Parents, fans and players will not be allowed to intensify competitiveness beyond those natural instincts. As our kids move to higher levels of baseball, those instincts will intensify. Anything beyond that will destroy the intent of our baseball program.
