From the Commissioner's desk:






There is a typo in the Spring Registration brochure

 stating age 30 plus to pitch, the correct age to pitch is 36 plus in the Spring '23 Season.

 I look forward to seeing everyone this year.

The 27th Ponce season in the Baltimore Area will begin this Sunday-First week of games will be on website, pdlmaryland.com- late tonight

New twist- This Sundays games 4/10 - play as a regular Ponce game but will not count towards regular season total of games played consider them " Exhibition Games", for the purpose of getting teams organized, new players getting uniforms, checks to umpires, game balls to teams etc...

Looks like we may have 7 teams which leads to a Sunday bye, to help with byes I'm looking into some Spring night time games. We'll have have Easter Sunday break to finalize teams, rosters, schedule and

 Full Season will  start on 4/24


I look forward to seeing everyone soon

As restrictions are slowly being lifted, All County fields we use are working towards opening in July .

I am going thru the process of obtaining  field permits  for use.

Ponce office will continue to update start of a season with  playing guidelines  as solid information is received  from county and health officials.




County schools, Rec and parks have closed fields until April 26th

Following  that and the state of maryland guidelines.

The Ponce workout date and season openng dates will be postponed. These dates will be determined at a later date.

Gentleman, who would have ever thought I would have to send a message to teams regarding the COVID-19 pandemic we are all dealing with. Hopefully no one you know has tested positive.


The Spring Season is scheduled to start Sunday April 19th and as of today games will be played as scheduled, and the open workout Sunday March 29th will take place. 


This situation we are faced with seems to change every day, therefore we may face the possibility of Schools and Recreation Departments not allowing use of their respective facilities for an unspecified time. 


I feel it is my duty as Commissioner to provide teams with some communication as to how the League is proceeding as I take responsibility for the safety of all participants.


Please feel free to respond with any comments, God willing I will see all of you this Spring on the ball diamonds.
