Spring 2013 Registration is now CLOSED. Check with Division Directors for space availaibility

Check out the APB Facebook page   

Sign up early to secure your spot as APB sold out last season in many divisions. We expect record numbers to sign up, so don't be left out and register early!

If you are interested in managing, then complete a manager application under FORMS on the left and send to a Division Director.

APB strives to offer the most affordable league we can and unlike other leagues, we never turn away kids that want to play. Unfortunately however, APB has the highest operating costs of any league around, primarily due to our extremely high field costs (leases, permits and maintenance) as well as other general expenses required to operate a league. Families will receive a multi-player discount of $25 per additional player after the first player at full price.

Like past seasons, APB will continue to support and promote the Positive Coaching Alliance; and to show how much we believe in the program and want parents to come to the meetings, we will be collecting a FULLY REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT as part of the registration fees. The per-family PCA deposit will be refunded to any parent who attends the PCA meetings in February (or completes the on-line course).

As always, Agoura Pony Baseball is an entirely VOLUNTEER organization that encourages all parents to get involved. This not only helps us save costs that we would otherwise incur to hire people, but it’s also a rewarding and social experience that benefits our community. Teams will be collecting a $50 per player Snack Shack deposit (managers and two assistant coaches are exempt) that will be refunded after a family member (16 or older) works 2 hours in the snack shack. Note that APB’s Snack Shack deposit and shift requirement are far less than any of our neighboring leagues.

Fall Ball Season Information 


The season starts on September 16th and runs 10 Sundays through November 11th. All games are played at Lupin, including Shetland. The registration fee is $195 per player for all divisions. (All teams are required to also pay a team sponsorship fee of $375.) Games start times will depend on enrollment but we anticipate that game times would be at 10:00 am, 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm. As with previous years, we are allowing non-APB pre-formed and partially formed teams to be brought in to the league, bearing in mind that our regular fall ball program is designed to be an “instructional” league, not a high-level competitive league.


Here are just a few reasons to play Fall Ball at APB...



  1. Every game is played at our Lupin baseball complex, including all Shetland Games. Our Quarter Horse Division will be at Indian Springs.

  2. Fall Ball is an instructional league designed to enable players a time to improve their skills and focus on getting prepared for the Spring Season.  We do not keep official scores or standings.

  3. Hitters get 30-40 additional at bats during the Fall to prepare them for the Spring.

  4. Defensively, players have an opportunity to learn additional positions.

  5. Play with your friends - We will do the best we can to put players who want to play together on the same team - Just make the request when you register.

 ****************************


Fall Select League League


We are also bringing back our Select League for established All Star and Travel Teams.  This will allow for a higher level of play in the Fall and is separate from our Standard Fall Ball League.  In order to qualify you must have an established travel team or All Star Team that has played in tournament play during the past Spring Season. Select teams  will need to provide their own uniforms. Select League Games will be played on Sundays at Lupin.


If you have any additional questions or comments, please feel free to email us at agouraponybaseball@gmail.com


NOTE: Registration Ends on September 6, 2012.


Frequently asked questions

What is the focus of Fall Ball? The emphasis of Fall Ball is on teaching and improving upon players' fundamental skills. There are no standings or trophies awarded.

What is the cost? $195 per player which includes a jersey, cap, socks and belt. Additionally, all teams must obtain a sponsor for $325.

Games - Teams will play one game a week on SUNDAYS, rotating between 10am, noon, 2pm and 4pm time slots.

Pre-packed teams will be filled out with other players, if necessary, through the draft process. APB managers are allowed to "protect" up to six players including their child. The rest of the team will be selected through the draft process.
