WHY: PONY national is changing their birthday cut-off from April 30th to August 31st. This rule change goes in effect January 1st of 2018. However, NBBA will implement this change for the Fall 2017 season, as Fall baseball is designed to be a developmental season that prepares players for the level and rules they intend to play in the coming Spring season. That means, several players may skip a level within our league for one season. As PONY is such an influential body, many leagues have or will be following suit and adjusting their age cutoff as well. This age cut off better aligns with the completion of the Spring season (All-Stars) and the school cut-off ages as well. Simply said, those players with summer birthdays will become the younger players on the team vs. the oldest ones.
