Pony Baseball Bats Barrel Sizes

For 2011 Pony Baseball has made some changes to their rules regarding bat barrel diameter.

“Equipment, 8 (c) Wooden, metal, graphite or ceramic bats manufactured for baseball play, which are round and not more than two and five eighths inches in diameter (for Shetland, Pinto and Mustang effective in 2011 and Bronco, Pony, Colt and Palomino in 2012) at the thickest part, not more than 42 inches in length, are acceptable.”

So the older kids in Pony baseball can still use a 2 3/4″ barrel baseball bat for 2011 if they are in Bronco, Pony, Colt and Palomino.

The younger kids must now use a 2 5/8″ diameter barrel baseball bat for 2011 Pony baseball.

Also note, there is no mention of composite bats in the Pony Baseball rule changes for 2011


  1. I think this rule did not take into consideration parents with 2 or more players. The wrose case would be if they have 2 players in the pinto and under. What if the parents bouht them both a 2 ¾ from the fall season. Now how will pay to replace and the cost of these relatively new bats?

    This new rule should have a grandfather clause. Any one that can prove they purchased the bat prior to 2011, should be excluded from the rule. I need to replace one bat this year and no matter what one bat next year. This is not fare.
