16th Annual Memorial Day Tournament
May 23, 24 and 25, 2015
Thank you for your interest in our 16th Annual Memorial Day Tournament. We will accept only PONY age Pinto, Mustang, Bronco and Pony Players. Each Player must submit a copy of their birth certificate. To qualify, a Player’s birthday must be between May 1, 2006 and April 30, 2010 to play in the Pinto League; between May 1, 2004 and April 30, 2008 to play in the Mustang League; between May 1, 2002 and April 30, 2006 to play in the Bronco League and between May 1, 2000 and April 30, 2004 to play in the Pony League. Kona PONY Baseball cannot make exceptions except for a player who qualifies under the American with Disabilities Act.
We will accept up to 16 Pinto, Mustang and Bronco and 8 Pony teams who turn in the enclosed Registration Form and Entry Fee. The Tournament Fee is $375.00 for the Pinto League and $425.00 for the Mustang, Bronco and Pony Leagues. Please make your checks payable to Kona PONY Baseball and mail to P. O. Box 1656, Kealakekua, Hawaii 96750. There will be a $20.00 return check fee. Deadline for registering your team is February 14, 2015.
Please note that you are not automatically entered in the Tournament because you sent your Form, paid the Fee or called an official in our league to tell us you are bringing a team. You will receive a Confirmation Packet that will include a Roster Sheet, Waiver Forms, Medical Releases and Rules. We will notify you as soon as we can after the February 14, 2015 deadline to let you know if your team has been accepted. We highly recommend that you do not confirm any plane, car or hotel reservations until we confirm your team to play in the tournament. If your team is not one of the 16 teams confirmed in each division and you already made plans to be Kona, we will not accommodate your team to participate in this tournament.
Each team will be guaranteed at least three games. Please note that games are scheduled to begin at 8:00 A.M. on Saturday, May 23, 2015. We anticipate that the last games will start at noon and end at approximately 2:30 P.M. on Monday May 25, 2015. We hope that this information will help in making your travel plans. Depending on the number of Pinto teams we have, the Pinto games may end on Sunday or Monday.
The Mustang, Bronco and Pony Leagues will play a Championship format with the winners of the first round advancing through a Championship Bracket and the losers advancing through a Consolation Bracket. Medals will be awarded to each Player on the Championship Team, Second Place Team; and Consolation Winner in each league. The Pinto League will play a Goodwill format with no Championship or Consolation Winners. Each Pinto player will receive a gift to commemorate his or her participation in this tournament.
We will again host a Homerun Derby for the Bronco League on Saturday evening and for the Mustang League on Sunday evening. More information will be sent with your Confirmation Packet.
