I heard today the commissioners voted to have one baseball league in town. Pony league is finally over! Word is Kingsville is going back to Little League. The boys and girls club merged with babe Ruth and it was agreed to go back to little league! That is exactly what Kingsville needed ! Thanks to the kleberg county commissioners court!!!!!

If this is in fact true, that's great. Kingsville needed to have only one league. "Finally" is obviously anti Pony and still high up on Babe Ruth, calling it a merge. Nonetheless this decision would benefit our community. We will continue to have parents that will not be happy with rules of Little League. It will come down to play in this league or don't play ball.
Boys and Girls Club---- be ready for this circus.

Let's all play "fair" and by "the rules" and most importantly stay focused on the fact that this is about the kids.

Good Luck to everyone and LET'S PLAY BALL!!!!!

This was not a Merger with Babe Ruth! It's was a separation from both leagues to make a clean start. No ties to either. Good luck to Boys and Girls Club. It's gonna be great for baseball.

It was a merger because Pony still wanted to keep their league and all of the Babe Ruth board wanted the boys club to take this over because of the fairness and non bias associated by the Club. Little League is the oldest and most popular league in America. Youth baseball is meant for every child regardless of skill level. This is about ALL children , not just the good ones. Good luck club!

Call it a merge??meaning Babe Ruth takes their rules and combines them with the Little League Rules. NOT
BR never had any rules as a league. They also never had any by laws. They made rules as they went along with no one to answer to. My children played with BR/CR and it was such a joke of a league and I could never get any answers from anyone who was in charge. I chose BR because I was told that things were run fairly compared to the other league.

I am so glad there will now be Little League so we can all move forward.

Unfortunately, Kleberg County will no longer have a Champions division so that our special needs children will have the opportunity to enjoy the sport.

James Who cares, both leagues are gone now. Let go of the fact that you failed as a league and were never even close to bringing in the numbers that Pony had for years. Babe Ruth was never the biggest league and that was proven because James would NEVER produce his numbers.
Pony was not dying out, they were just in agreement that the community needed to move forward and that there needed to be only one league.
So please let go of what was and what has been. Move forward already and have a positive outlook for the community and Little League
The right thing

I think this is best for Kingsville although babe Ruth saved Kingsville from being a pony was time for us to go back to little league since all the communities in the area also do little league, The bgc will do it right now all we need is new umpires!!!

Let's be honest here the league is a baby sitters club. It's a place to drop off your child for an hour or so then pick them up. The kids who are good will now play in corpus get better and develop faster cause of competition. Then these league mommys will cry when there little boy playing in this Kingsville league when they don't play high school ball. Instead of development Kingsville has created turmoil and this is why kids move to other schools. Our leadership people we have in high positions to make decisions can't. They have no guts to do right. You might get stoned but in the end what you do in life is all you have to be judged in the after life. To be honest all those good ballers should form a team and compete in corpus and in northwest or wherever pony is and stay as our representatives in that competition. The county just violated our kids rights and our civil rights.

All this means now is that kingsville is going back to losing in the high school level..... The team that's there now in hight school is why there is even a pony the high school is doing so well..... This town is doing so well.... And now we r just taking a step back.... And this is from someone who played both pony and little....

Everyone has gone on to play in corpus. There's three full Kingsville teams that have formed and refuse to play for bgc. In addition to other individuals playing on corpus teams . That's 40+ kids that Kingsville has lost what a shame. I think Kingsville needs two leagues. One recreational league that "everyone wins" and one competitive league so kids can compete when they get older.
