Meadows Place PONY Baseball

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?
Practices and games are held at Mark McGrath Park in Meadows Place, TX, near the intersection of W. Airport and Dairy Ashford. 

What is included with registration?
For the Fall baseball season, MPPB provides a hat and jersey for the uniform. Players will provide their own baseball pants. For the Spring baseball season, Shetland and Pinto divisions are provided a hat, jersey, pants, socks, and a belt for the uniform. Mustang and Bronco divisions are provided an upgraded jersey and hat for the Spring baseball season (pants, belt, and socks will be provided by the player).

What equipment does my child need?
All players will need their own baseball glove. For sanitary reasons, we also highly encourage players to purchase their own personal batting helmet. Most players also purchase their own baseball bat, and we also recommend cleats for footwear (especially for the older players). Bats must comply with the USABat standard (look for the "USA Baseball" logo stamped on the bat).

What does League Age mean?

The League Age is the age that your child is considered by the league for classification purposes. Currently, the League Age is determined by the age of your child as of September 1, 2022. While this may be confusing as your child's League Age may not match the actual age of your child, rest assured that they will be playing with players of the same age.

Which division does my child play in?
MPPB operates on a fall-spring model, which means that players move up in age before the fall season. Currently, this is determined by the age of your child as of September 1, 2022. Because the age cutoff date is the same as that for school, you will generally find players in the following school grades in each division:
  • 6U Shetland (T-ball): Pre-K and Kindergarten
  • 8U Pinto (Coach Pitch): First grade and second grade
  • 10U Mustang (Kid Pitch): Third grade and fourth grade
  • 12U Bronco (Kid Pitch): Fifth grade and sixth grade
Can my child play up a division?
MPPB encourages players to play with their age group, as this increases the skill level of each age group. However, we do allow players to play up one division.

Do I have to live within a certain boundary to play with MPPB?
No, MPPB does not have any boundary restrictions, and welcomes all players.

When are practices and games?
Practices are held during the week and vary by the team, but are generally at the same day/time each week. 6U Shetland and 8U Pinto teams typically practice one day per week, while the 10U Mustang and 12U Bronco teams typically practices two days per week. Games are typically played on Saturdays, although some weeknight games may be played depending on the scheduling requirements in a given season.

What are All-Stars?
Following the spring baseball season, MPPB has the opportunity to form all-star teams in each division to play in PONY postseason tournaments starting in June.

Is MPPB a 501(c)3?
Yes, MPPB is a 501(c)3 organization, meaning that all donations to the league are tax-deductible. For more information on making a donation, email us at [email protected].
