 As you may or may not have heard, USA Baseball is instituting a new birthday cutoff for the 2018 season and beyond. This change will affect all youth baseball leagues (Pony, Little League, etc) and is expected to affect travel ball associations as well. Most baseball organizations -including our league and all other Pony leagues- used an age cutoff of April 30. Beginning in 2018, this cutoff date has changed to August 31st.

This means all players born in months May, June, July, and August will skip a "baseball year" this season. For example, a player born in June 2011 would be considered a seven year old player (because he/she would be seven years old as of August 31, 2018). For players born in months outside May-August, there will be no change in age calculations.

This change will be an adjustment for all leagues this season. Some players will be moving up a level beyond where parents expected to be, causing some concern for safety and development. Some players who were dominant at one age group might level off in an older division. Unfortunately, some players will 'age out' and lose their final season of baseball. Change is hard, and this change will be a challenging one.

The goal of this national change was to ensure players played their entire season in an age-pure manner.There was no way to institute this without impacting players born May-August. Santa Ynez Pony will not have the authority to change this, so we will adjust and move forward.
