President's Welcome Letter

Hello AFPBA Families,

I want to personally thank each of you for having your child participate in a great youth sport with a great community organization. We strive to put the best product on the field each season and feel the growth, both as a young athlete and as a person, is unmatched. PONY requires coach training each season, safety instruction and first aid training of all our coaches who have also been background checked. There is no other youth league we know of that goes to the expense and concern that we do for your child’s safety and experience.

As we are about to kick off our Spring 2016 season with Opening Day this coming Saturday, February 27 we will need your help coordinating some of the last minute items. We expect all our players and families to attend the Opening Day ceremonies. The Ceremonies will be held on the Kyrene Akimel South baseball field. Kelly Stinett, former Diamondbacks catcher, will be our special guest speaker and throw out our 1st Pitch!

Please arrive by 7:45 am, unless you have an earlier Picture Time. Be sure to wear full uniform (uniforms are due to arrive Thursday night and your Coach will communicate with you on when/how to get the uniforms. It is quite common to put on the jersey, socks and hat once you arrive at the field on Saturday morning. Do not bring gloves or bats to the Ceremonies. Please find your team area with a name card and have your player join their team. You can find a location near the fields at that time to hang out and wait for the photo opportunities.

Be sure to turn your signed Parent Code of Conduct sheet in to your Head Coach if you haven’t already. The forms are available on our website at www.ponybaseballaz.com under the Handouts tab.

Thank you for being a part of our PONY family and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday.

Ron Ensley
AFPBA President
