South Bay PONY Baseball is a community youth baseball league. Founded in Manhattan Beach in 1983, we are an all-volunteer organization that offers baseball to kids ages 4-14. We serve the entire South Bay of Los Angeles County, including Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, El Segundo, Hawthorne, and Lawndale.
Our Opening Ceremonies and Celebration are Saturday, March 5th at Mira Costa. The event is held on the softball field near the tennis courts and snack stand.
We will need help with supervision of the inflatables and bouncy houses from approximately 9:15am to 12:45 / 1:00pm.
This would give students 3-4 hours of volunteer time.
Anyone interested or has questions can email her at [email protected].
There will be a Sign Up Genius link given to all interested students closer to the time. Probably in the last week of February.
When you reach out to Tracy please give her: FIRST AND LAST NAME, PHONE NUMBER, EMAIL ADDRESS, HOURS AVAILABLE and you will be added on the list.
