Marina Pony Baseball Softball was founded over 40 years ago as a non-profit, fully volunteer-run organization committed to providing organized baseball and softball for the youth of Marina.
For many of the youth involved, MPBS is the only opportunity to play organized baseball and softball prior to High School sports. We recognize the purpose of sports as a challenge to develop one’s individual skills with the need to blend individual performance with team goals. Good sportsmanship is most important and while victory is the goal of competition, the experience should be just as rewarding as the final score.
Our goal is to provide a quality program that can meet the needs of the children in our community. We promote the teaching of fundamental skills and the concepts of the game We work hard to ensure that we provide the best youth sports experience at the lowest possible cost.
WHAT DOES PONY STAND FOR?
PONY is an acronym for Protect Our Nation's Youth. The concept for the name originally came from boys at the local YMCA in Washington, Pennsylvania and stood for "Protect Our Neighborhood Youth," but when PONY became an international program in the early 1950's "Neighborhood" was switched to "Nation's."
