Katy Pony Baseball

- It's a whole NEW Ballgame!

Welcome. Our organization is celebrating its 25th year as Katy's finest youth baseball program. We are a registered non-profit organization dedicated to provide the best youth baseball experience possible.

Our players range in age from 4 to 17. We offer two types of league play -- Regular League is more recreational and is designed for individuals; Open League is more competitive and is designed for independent teams.

Registration is held in December/January for the Spring season and July/August for the Fall season. Please take a few minutes to look around our website for more information, or feel free to contact one of our volunteer board members ... we look forward to seeing you at the fields!

For general questions, please email playball@katyponybaseball.org
For team parent questions, please email katyponybaseball@yahoo.com
For updated field information, call the RAINOUT LINE at 281-394-8107

Division Directors should be contacted first for information pertaining to your division.  Refer to the Board section of this website for contact info. For issues related to fields, the complex, or tournaments please contact:

Katy PONY Baseball is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to provide the best youth baseball experience possible. Players range in age from 4 to 17. We offer - Certified Umpires (ages 6 and above) - Paid Concessions Personnel - Professional Groundskeepers - Professional Playing Fields - Graduated Pitching and Base Paths - Open Bases (Lead-offs, Steals, Balks) just like the Pros (ages 9 and above). We also offer a separate Open League for select or tournament teams.

Player Costs -- $105 for Shetland 4/5 (T-Ball) players. $125 for Shetland 6 (T-Ball) players. $135 per player for Pinto through Colt (ages 7-17).  A $10 multi-player discount for each additional family member (same household) will be applied.

Payment -- Online registration payment is by major credit and debit cards only. Walk-in registration is cash or check only.

League Age -- Players are assigned to a division based on their age as of April 30, 2016. A League Age Chart can be found on our website under the Registration menu. Requests to "play-up" one age division may be granted for special circumstances, subject to league approval at tryouts. Because age groups are usually combined in the Fall (7&8, 9&10), most play-up requests cannot be honored.  Play-up requests must be handled at walk-in registration; online registration is not available for play-up requests.

Key Dates -- Register Online through August 16. See above for walk-in registration dates. Tryouts are held for ages 6 and above to help ensure teams are competitively balanced. Tryouts for Ages 7-14 are August 22, tryouts for Shetland-6 T-ball (Age 6) are August 23, and tryouts for Colt (Ages 15-17) are August 29.  There are no tryouts for Shetland 4/5 T-Ball.  All players will be assigned to a team whether or not they attend tryouts.  All players should be contacted by September 1.  Games begin September 21.  Age divisions fill up quickly ... please register early to avoid being placed on a wait list.

Late Registration -- We accept late registration, but all sign-ups after August 19 will be charged a $25 late fee and you may be placed on a wait list.  Late fees are waived for Colt Division (ages 15-17).  Late registration is available at our facilities (Four Seasons Park) on Saturday, August 22.

Practices / Games -- Practice schedules are determined by each team. Games begin September 21. Most teams will play one game on a week night and one game on Saturdays. A double-elimination post season tournament is planned for most teams, weather permitting.

Other Details -- Players will receive a team jersey and baseball cap. Each player receives raffle tickets to sell -- you keep the money to help offset your cost -- or submit in your name if you choose not to sell. Teams will distribute raffle tickets. You get to watch and enjoy the games ... parents are not required to maintain fields, umpire games or sell food items. Experience the difference!

If you desire more than two sessions, the cost will be $25 per night. Looking forward to seeing you there! Please check Katy Pony's rainout line at 281-394-8107 for weather updates and park/field closures.

Wednesday, July 8, 2015 will be our last summer umpire clinic session.
