The Pony division is primarily for kids that are in 7th/8th grade. High School Freshmen who are NOT playing on a High School Baseball team, a Colt League Team, or apart of any other Baseball organization are eligible to play. However, 9th graders are highly encouraged to play at the Colt League level. The Spring Season usually involves local community teams from the northern Chicago and suburban areas. These consist of community ‘house-league’ level of teams with a few community travel players sprinkled in. Starting in late April, the regular season concludes in early June, followed by a championship tournament that runs into mid/late June.
