**New rules for Pony division effective Spring 2017:
15U players in the Pony division must use BBCOR, drop 3, bats only (does not apply to 13U/14U players in the same league.)
Pony age is now 13 to 15. The player must not be 16 years old prior to 4/30/17.
New PONY bat rules beginning Spring 2018:
In conjunction with USA Baseball and its other participating national member organizations, PONY Baseball has adopted the new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat). Effective January 1, 2018, with the exception of -3 (BBCOR certified), all other minus factor bats (-5, -7, -9, etc.), must be YBBCOR certified with the USABat licensing stamp on the bat in order to be used for league and tournament play. Minus factor bats -5, -7, -9, etc. used in 2017 will be illegal to use in 2018.
The new YBBCOR certified bats bearing the USABat licensing mark are expected to be offered in retail stores in September.
