Protect Our Nation’s Youth (Pony) Baseball is a non-profit organization created to give lovers of America’s pastime, ages 4-14, an opportunity to play ball.
The festivities kick off on Saturday with a carnival where attendees can grab the first hot dog of the season, enjoy a bake sale, and even test their fastball and earn prizes at the radar gun station.
Players are advised to arrive at the field by 10:30 a.m. for the opening ceremony. Each team will gather on the south field carrying their team banner where they will run onto the field to kick off the season.
The first game of the 2013 Pony League season will be the Dodgers at the Angels scheduled at 11 a.m. with a rendition of the national anthem by Jacqueline Mackenzie.
League officials urge people to come early, parking may be in short supply.
