May 16th Status Update

Hello PONY Families and Players,

       We hope you are all doing well during this situation and changing time. The league had hoped to have a chance to resume playing by now, and are continuing to monitor the guidelines, restrictions and recommendations of the various Federal, State and local authorities, the PONY organization and other local sports associations. We are hopeful that there will be an opportunity to consider playing again in the summer and will continue to communicate as more information is available in the coming weeks.

       The Santa Barbara PONY league has decided to continue the suspension of the season through May 31. We are hopeful to learn more about the possibility of reduced restrictions for the County and City of Santa Barbara in the coming days. For now, please continue to stay safe and take care of each other. We sure miss the opportunity for the children to play, the spring season and the interaction with the PONY community. If you have any fun stories or ideas for playing safely right now, please share with the league. We would be happy to include on the league's website and share with the PONY community.

       Let's all hope that conditions will improve over the next weeks and we can safely resume playing in the summer. The priority of the league is the safety of all the players and families. The league believes the continued suspension of the season for now is prudent and necessary until we can safely resume playing. We will continue to monitor the developments and again decide the best course of action as we have more information.

       We miss you all and look forward to our next opportunity to come together and support the children playing baseball!

Thank you,
