Pharr All Star Pony Baseball

Congratulation is in order to the City of Pharr’s 10U PONY team for their first place win at this years P.O.N.Y South Zone Super Regionals in Laredo, TX. The tournament began June 30th and continued on until July 3rd. The Pharr 10U team dominated the playing field. They played against teams from Laredo, Hidalgo, San Antonio, and Eagle Pass. The 10U team worked diligently all year long, strengthening and conditioning to prepare for this years regional tournament. All their hard work and dedication paid off; competitors were unable to score against them. With their numerous back-to-back homeruns and shut down pitching, the 10U PONY team paved their way to a victory at Slaughter Park.

The Pharr 10U PONY team will be moving on to The Zone Championship in Lafayette, Louisiana, which will be held later this month.

Coach Leonel Palacios, head Coach of the Pharr 10U PONY team, was excited about the tournament and extremely proud of his players. He coached the team last year and explained

…I’m taking it a little bit easier this year, having a little bit more fun, trying to smile some more. I know the stress is hard, but we’re having a good time.Head Coach Leonel Palacios

The City of Pharr is proud of the accomplishments and success of our youth and much of that success is attributed to the support of their parents and loved ones. We congratulate all participating teams and commend them on their hard work and commitment.
