The Shetland division is T-Ball, for boys & girls ages 4-6, born between May 1, 2010 and April 30, 2013. The emphasis is on fun, as well as learning basic throwing and catching skills. Players hit off a tee, and all players bat each inning.
Teams meet once a week on Saturdays from 9 am - 10:30 am at Washington Park Fields (turf fields at Lake Washington Blvd E and E Madison St) for instruction, followed by a game. On the game days, they will practice for about 30 minutes, then play for about 60 minutes.
Players just need a glove. Seattle PONY provides hats, shirts, balls, tees and helmets.
Most teams will have one Sunday game during the season in lieu of their Saturday game.
The season ends June 10th and the Seattle PONY BBQ and Shetland Run-the-Bases will be held June 17th. There are no games over Memorial Day weekend.
For the 2017 season, Shetland teams should be formed by March 26, with practices and games beginning April 8. Also, please be sure to attend the PONY Palooza, date TBA, before the season. This fun, pre-season event provides a great introduction and start to the new season.
