2019 Pinto 8U & Mustang 9U Coach Pitch International Baseball Classic


Now in its fourth year, PONY's Pinto International Baseball Classic is the premiere event for 8U baseball teams in the Midwestern United States. International participants have included the 2018 tournament champion Aruba, the Philippines and Dominican Republic. These teams' participation has created a competitive blend of local and international teams in this exciting pool play and double-elimination tournament. We've also welcomed highly-skilled U.S. PONY teams from California, Pennsylvania and North Carolina, as well. We will also offer a second age division for Mustang 9U teams. These are open invitational tournaments. We will accept the first 16 teams to register in each division and then will have a waiting list, if needed. The size of the tournament may change, depending upon the number of teams that request to play. In addition to a sensational weekend of baseball, teams have been treated to special events like a pool party at Mt. Vernon's nearby water park (Aquatic Zoo) and fireworks. Affordable Gas & Electric also came on-board last year as the event's Name & Title Sponsor. Fun-filled weekends have been had by all at the Pinto International Baseball Classic, and we hope you join us in 2019!
