2015 Pony Olympic Tryouts 

 

 

My name is John Ray-Keil, I'm the Commissioner of the Pony Divison (13U & 14U) for Seattle Pony Baseball.

 

Last year Seattle Pony Baseball experimented with a “Select Lite” (experienced coaches, winter training, 20+ league games and tournaments) model for the Olympic and P13 teams.  Feedback received from parents has encouraged us to refine and focus on just one Olympic Select Team.

 

 

Seattle Pony Baseball Olympic Team Basics:

 

·         Experienced coaches - Mark Larranaga, Dave Roberson and Walter Palmer will coach the Olympic Team (All three coached the Olympic team last year). 

·         Six weeks of fall baseball games starting August 17th.  Games on Sundays, no practices.

·         Fall workouts twice a week at Seattle University (beginning mid October – mid February).  Jeff James coordinating.  (Currently, Jeff James is head coach of the Bellingham Bells and Volunteer Assistant Coach at Seattle University)

·         USSSA weekend tournaments starting in March 2015.

 

 

Commitment 

An important reminder is the level of commitment we expect from the players. We understand that conflicts arise through the season, but it is important that you and your child understand the commitment to the team and the need to provide us with advance notice of any unavoidable conflicts with games or practices.  Conflicts with other sports are by nature avoidable.

 


Olympic Tryouts:
Sunday August 17th – Montlake 11am – 2pm

Sunday August 24th – Montlake 11am – 2pm

 

All players may attend the Olympic tryouts but only the top players will make this team.  A player only has to attend one tryout session.

 

More details on the Olympic Team to follow in the next few weeks.

 

We do NOT have tryouts for the Cascade teams. Cascade workouts start early January.  Cascade players will be placed on an available team after the player has registered.

Please let me know if you are planning to attend the Olympic tryouts.

In Memoriam, Steve Cunetta

It is with great sadness that Seattle PONY Baseball announces the passing of Steve Cunetta.  Steve selflessly devoted countless hours of service to our  league, in the years following its founding, to establish SPB as the respected community organization it is today - an organization that has played such an important part in the lives of literally thousands of young and enthusiastic Seattle ballpalyers and their families.

To honor Steve's memory, the SPB Board has voted to name the Bronco Championship trophy after Steve.  A formal dedication ceremony will take place after this year's Bronco championship game on June 15 at Washington Park. Happily, several SPB elderstatemen were able to present Steve with  the trophy this past Saturday before he passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on Sunday May 5th.
