The Ponce League currently operates in the suburbs surrounding Baltimore, Md. (Carroll, Frederick, Howard ,Anne Arundel  and Baltimore Counties.). We are an affiliate of the original Ponce De Leon League that currently operates in the suburbs surrounding Washington, D.C. (Fairfax County and Montgomery County).

We have two seasons of play; Spring and Fall. At the present time there are over 120 Ponce players and over 8 teams  in the League. In our first season in 1995 there were four teams and 40 players. No matter your level of play, you can rediscover your passion for baseball and come play ball with Ponce.
