New Equipment Rule Changes Coming in 2012

Effective Spring 2012 and beyond, PONY Baseball has implemented new rules regarding the bat barrel size and base coaches helmets.

Bats - For ALL divisions (Shetland-Pony), bat barrels will be limited to no more than 2 5/8 inches in diameter. 2 3/4 inch barrels are now banned. Composite bats are still okay to use.

Base Coach Helmets - All base coaches must wear a protective helmet while performing their duties on the field. This rule does not apply to coach-pitchers. Most of the helmet manufacturers make inexpensive base coach helmets.
