Leagues from the Southwest Region (San Diego County) recently participated in PONY Day with the PADRES. Participating Leauges purchased well over 4,000 tickets at special discount prices.
During the day, 13 players were selected to participate in a special onfield Infield Practice led by 2 local PONY Coaches, as well as 5 players selected to deliver the Opening Pitch, 1 player was selected as the official Play Ball Kid and another as the Little Star. The Little Star announces the lead off batter for the San Diego Padres in middle of the game. Prior to the game players and coaches assembled behind the outfield fences and participated in an onfield parade that led them onto the warning track, down the 3rd baseline and around PETCO Park with team banners and lots of smiles.
Adults were also in on the action as our top selling leagues were able to select 2 adults to be on the field as Heavy Hitters and observe the PONY Day festivities.
It was a great day in San Diego for PONY Day with the Padres. PONY Baseball would like to thank the San Diego Padres for all they do for PONY Baseball throughout the year.
