SOUTHWEST GAMES

Thank you for making the Fall Baseball season a success. The spring page will be posted soon.

Some changes for 2018 include:

  • A smaller fundraising requirement. Each player in a division will now only need to sell six (6) of the raffle tickets.
  • At registration you now have the ability to set up a payment plan to pay your fees over four payments, so payments can be completed prior to tryouts/skills evaluation (March 3, 2018).

SWLPB SPRING 2018 - Spring 2018

Southwest Pony baseball is committed to teaching young players the fundamentals of baseball, good sportsmanship and fair-play. We welcome 3 - 13 year players. Each division is divided into a two-year age bracket in order to maintain fair competition for all (exceptions due to a players ability can be granted on a case by case basis). All players are guaranteed placement on a team in one of the following divisions:

  • WEE-BALL(T-Ball) division is for 3 year old players.
  • SHETLAND MINOR (T-ball) division is for 4 year old players.
  • SHETLAND (T-ball) division is for 5-6 year old players (with an occasional 4 year old player based on ability),
  • PINTO division is for 7-8 year old players and the ball is pitched by a coach.
  • MUSTANG division is for 9-10 year old players, with players pitching at a distance of 48 feet, base distances 60 feet and playing full baseball rules.
  • PONY division is for 11-13 year old players, with players pitching at a distance of 50', base distances 70' and playing full baseball rules.
The ages for the divisions are as of April 30, 2018, for the 2018 spring season. Spring ages are used for Fall ball , so the children can prepare for the appropriate division. For example, a child that is 8, but will be 9 on April 12, 2018 would play both fall 2017 and spring 2018 as a 9 year old in the Mustang division.

Our games are played at one of Lexington's premier youth baseball complexes, Cardinal Run. Cardinal Run park is a multi-million dollar facility operating six playing fields.

Southwest Pony has NO LEAGUE BOUNDARIES (unlike other leagues)! We welcome players from all over Lexington, Nicholasville, Wilmore, Georgetown, Richmond, Versailles and more!
