Pony League Baseball
(for Boys Grade 7-10)
Bristol Parks and Recreation Department’s Pony League Baseball program is for boys in grades 7th through 10th (at time of registration). Pony League will run from mid-June to mid-August, and teams will play 15+ regular season games and all teams make the playoffs. Teams will play two games a week and have at least one practice. Games are played on weekday evenings and occasionally during the day on weekends at local fields (Riley Field, Page Park, Muzzy Field). Team schedules will be handed out as soon as they become available. Contact League Director Shawn Mirmina at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Fee: Registration is $65. The league will be capped at 84 players. All players who register after cap is reached will be placed on a waiting list. Register online at www.bristolrec.com.
Please note: Players are not allowed to play in Pony League if they are participating in other Bristol-based baseball leagues, with the exception of Edgewood Junior/Senior League. Players trying out for another Bristol-based or out-of-town summer league (i.e. American Legion, Junior Legion, AAU) must still register for Pony League in order to ensure a spot on a team. Players that make other leagues will receive a full refund for their Pony League registration.
Players will not share equipment. If any players are in need of equipment (i.e. helmet, catcher's gear etc.) please contact League Director Shawn Mirmina.
CDC has recently published new guidance indicating that individuals who remain free of any COVID-19 symptoms and are either fully vaccinated (i.e., 14 days after their final vaccine dose) or have fully recovered from a known COVID-19 infection in the prior 90 days do not need to quarantine if they have been identified as close contact of a known COVID-19 case. However, quarantined athletes, coaches, officials, and other participants who are either not fully-vaccinated or have not recovered from a known COVID-19 infection in the prior 90 days should not be allowed to engage in athletic activities until at least 14 days after their quarantine period begins. Alternatively, quarantined athletes, coaches, officials, and other participants can be allowed to return to participation in athletics after completing 10 days of quarantine, provided a PCR test collected at day 8 or later is negative and no symptoms associated with COVID-19 were experienced throughout the entire quarantine period.
Pony League “Try-Outs” will be held on Saturday, June 12th at Page Park. All NEW players to the Pony League (of any age) are encouraged to attend. Players who have played Pony League in the past, but did not play last season, are also encouraged to attend. Tryouts will begin at 4pm and end by 5:30pm. Players must bring a mask to where in the dugout area. Players must also bring their own equipment.
