Come to our next board meeting for Mid-County PONY baseball. Wednesday, January 18, 7:00 pm at Capitola City Hall, Community Room, 420 Capitola Ave., Capitola (right new to the Police Station). Our league historically combines kids from Aptos, Capitola/Soquel and Live Oak Little Leagues. PONY baseball is a recreational league which welcomes players of all skill levels. (We have even had kids in the past who had never played baseball before!) Mid-County PONY is inclusive, community-based and most of all fun. Please come find out more, have any questions answered and what volunteer opportunities we have for the Spring 2017 season.
