In accordance with PONY Baseball and our surrounding communities, Frankfort Baseball has implemented the new April 30th birthdate cutoff for baseball registration (instead of the August 31st birthdate we previously used). This change will only affect those with May/June/July/August birthdays.  What does this mean?  It means that those kids born in May, June, July and August can continue to play in the league they were in last year.  If this change has affected the league your child is eligible to play in, and you’d like to request for them to “play up”, please send the request to the Director of Player Personnel, Matt Littlefield.  In your email request, please include your child's full name, birthdate, school grade, requested play up or down division level, and reason(s) for wanting the change to be made.
 
 

For any additional questions regarding the cutoff date change, please contact the President of Frankfort Baseball, Brad Baker, .

 

Below is a brief description of the different divisions we offer within Frankfort Baseball. Frankfort Baseball offers a baseball program designed to provide the opportunity for our players to build their skills in a fun, yet competitive environment.  Generally, practices begin in April and games begin in May and end by July 1st. Teams are assigned in March. Managers will contact players when practices begin in early spring. Frankfort Baseball provides a hat, jersey and socks to players in Shetland, Morgan, Pinto, Mustang and Bronco leagues. Players are responsible for baseball pants and cleats.  Please wait until you are assigned a team before purchasing your pants.
