PONY Baseball recently announced that it has changed the cutoff date for determining a player's age for the 2018 season. Starting in the 2018 season, the player's age for the season will be the player's age as of August 31, 2018. Essentially, any player with a birthday between May and August will now be considered 1 year older than they were under the old age rules. For example, a player born in May of 2006 would have played their 10 year old year in Mustang last year and will be considered a 12 year old for Bronco this year.

Please note that this was a decision made by PONY, not a decision made by the WBA or the OVYBL.

Kroger Community Rewards Program (Please take time to re-register your card)
Dear WBA Members,
We have received notice from Kroger that it is time to re-enroll your Kroger card in the program so the WBA can continue to receive contributions from Kroger. This past year was our best year for member participation (37 cards enrolled) and the money recieved from Kroger has been used for many upgrades to the facility. Our goal this year is to get to 100 cards enrolled. With over 400 kids playing at the WBA this year we feel 100 enrollments is more than attainable but.....we need everyones help to reach that goal. We ask that everyone that receives this email take 5 minutes of your time and either re-enroll your card or if you haven't particpated yet please do so now. We appreciate everyones participation thus far. It all goes to a great cause, improving our facilities for the benefit of our kids.
Thank you again for all your support
