SAN GABRIEL VALLEY PONY BASEBALL
 
Our mission is to provide leadership skills to our future leaders through competitive sports. Our program serves boys and girls from 3 to 14 years old, and is a non-profit organization. It is an exciting opportunity for youth to learn teamwork and sportsmanship in a competitive yet supportive environment. PONY Baseball Mission is to "Protect Our Nations Youth" by providing experience in youth baseball  that will help young people grow into healthier and happier adults. The name PONY is an acronym for "Protect Our Nation's Youth." The concept for the name originally came from boys at the local YMCA in Washington, Pennsylvania and stood for "Protect Our Neighborhood Youth", but when PONY became an international program in the early 1950's "Neighborhood" was switched to "Nation's."  PONY Baseball divisions are organized utilizing two-year age brackets.  Baseball play is governed by the Official Rules of Major League Baseball and PONY regulations, which contain those exceptions deemed necessary for a youth baseball program.  The PONY rule book also contains regulations relative to league organization and administration.  

There are over 375 former and current Major League Baseball players who are graduates of PONY Baseball. Nomar Garciaparra, Kirk Gibson, Alex Rodriguez, Ken Griffey, Jr., Orel Hershiser, Cal Ripken, Jeff Kent, John Smoltz, and Shawn Green are just a few of the Major League Baseball players who participated in PONY Baseball.

History
SGV PONY History

In 1996 Mike Proctor, Lydia Proctor, Ernie Nunez and John Karsten helped create San Gabriel Valley PONY Baseball. With hard work, dedication, and leadership, they overcame challenges and obstacles that were put before them.  Collectively, they had 16 years of experience running a youth baseball league.  A handful of managers and their children, who believed in them and PONY Baseball, helped start the league. Their first year the league began with 80 children and has grown to over 400 children for the 2007 season. Although they no longer have children in the league, they continue to push forward. Without their dedication and leadership, we would not be here playing PONY Baseball. It has not only developed our children mentally and physically, but has taught our children how to play real baseball.  It takes more time, energy and diligence than most of us realize to run a baseball league.
