Fall Ball 2015

Great news!!! Looks like we will be offering a fall ball program through OVPB this season!!! A lot of you came to us with interest about it, so we decided to give it a go. We are in talks with Loomis and Rocklin PONY leagues to discuss inter-league games with them, as they will be offering the same type of program through their leagues.

  • We will only have games on Sundays so it won't interfere with other sports and activities your child may be interested in.
  • We will allow anyone who wants to put a team together to play with that team and keep a group of friends together for the fall season. There will not be a win-loss record kept, and a TOC would only be taking place if it were between the other leagues in the area. Individual players who are not part of a pre-made team will be placed based on team fulfillment needs and special requests.

There will not be a Shetland age division, but if your player is moving into Pinto next season, this is a great way for them to get acclimated to the next level of baseball.

This is a great way for your baseball player to keep the repetitions going, and keep it fun, as well as not causing them to miss out on other sports they may want to play.

More details will be coming soon. Registration will be available within a couple weeks. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Hit-A-Thon Winners Are...

If you were there, you got to witness some really good hitters on display. The top amount of hits in each division earned themselves each a $25 gift card to Sports Authority.

The WINNERS are listed as follows:

Shetland: Brayden Jackson of The Mets, with 11 out of 20 hits

Pinto: We had a tie. Camden Goings of The Cubs, and Jeremiah Pritchard of the Yankees, both hit 15 out of 20.

Mustang: Logan Shanks of The Padres with 19 out of 20.

Bronco: Kai Wallin of The White Sox with 17 out of 20.

Pow Wow Days Parade

OVPB will be participating in the Pow Wow Day Parade this Saturday.

Here is the itinerary for the day:

  • 8:00 am - meet in the Schools Credit Union Parking lot at Main near Madison for staging before the parade. (this is a request by the parade coordinator, as our group will be one of the bigger groups, and wants to make sure we get together easily) YOU NEED TO BE AWARE THAT THEY WILL BE CLOSING THE ROADS TO VEHICLES BEFORE 8:30, SO DON'T BE LATE DROPPING YOUR KIDS OFF!!!
  • 9:00 am - Parade procession starts. They understand that we have ballgames that morning, and will put us as close to the front of the procession as possible. But, we will adjust game start times accordingly. Regardless, we should be done by 10:00
  • Space is limited. We ask that you drop your child off in the staging area, and proceed to a spot along the parade route BEFORE THE ROADS CLOSE. If your child needs you to be with them, we can get the parade coordinators to make exceptions. Plus, it would be way more fun for your kid to see you waving at them from the sidelines as they walk by.
  • Most kids will be walking. Bring your team banners and the kids will walk as a team within our big group. This will make it easier for you to spot them along the parade route. The coordinators may require parents to leave their kids and not walk. Please don't get upset with this, as they have rules and limitations by which we need to abide. 
  • The Parade route goes down Greenback from Main to Filbert. 
  • Pick your child up in the parking lot of The Divine Savior Church at the corner of Greenback and Filbert

OVPB vs Little League

The primary features that distinguish Pony baseball from Little League baseball are those of a two year age bracket system and scaled diamonds. Additionally, Pony teaches lead offs and base stealing starting at age 9 (Mustang Division), or earlier while pitchers learn pick off moves and holding runners on base to counter the potential steal.  Full Story
