Special Events

Saturday, July 28

Each year PONY Nationals for the East Zone chooses one or two charities to support during the tournament. This year the food banks in each tournament region of the East Zone and the Champions League, a newer league within PONY that supports softball activities for exceptional children, have been chosen.

In lieu of the traditional gift exchange, each team is encouraged to bring a ball bucket full of non-perishable food items to your first game on Saturday, July 28, where it will be collected and then delivered to the regional food bank for distribution. For more information about the charities and the significance of the ball bucket, download the letter to coaches.
