PONY Select Baseball PLAYER AGENTTiffany Guerrero 

Every non-profit youth sports organization is governed by a group of individuals with set roles and responsibilities. Running a recreational baseball league is extremely rewarding, but it also requires a lot of work. Having committed volunteers to serve on the Board and share in the responsibilities can make a big difference in the success of our youth baseball program and make in an impact to families in our community.

All board positions are Volunteer opportunities, but require a generous time commitment. All applicants and board members must understand that decisions made for the park are for the whole of the organization and not to benefit one specific player or family. Board Members do not have to have a child or family member playing at the park to be considered. Applications will be reviewed and voted on by current board members.

Board Members are subject to the mandatory background check as well as the county required concussion and volunteer training. Please review the link to the county requirements HERE
