South Sound Baseball (SSB) is a non profit organization founded in 1958.

We are a P.O.N.Y. affiliated youth baseball league providing playing opportunities for youth in Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater and surrounding areas.
The league is organized into districts based on the boundaries of the local high schools.
Each district is responsible for registering players and forming teams within its area of responsibility.

What does PONY stand for?
PONY is an acronym for Protect Our Nation's Youth.
The concept for the name originally came from boys at the local YMCA in Washington, Pennsylvania and stood for "Protect Our Neighborhood Youth," but when PONY became an international program in the early 1950's "Neighborhood" was switched to "Nation's."How is play governed in PONY Baseball.  Baseball play is governed by the Official Rules of Major League Baseball, and PONY Baseball rules and regulations, which contain those exceptions deemed necessary for a youth baseball program.

The PONY rule book also contains regulations relative to league organization and administration. 


The PONY program provides flexible rules and incremental levels of competitive play which are specifically designed for the physical development and safety requirements of each age group. Within each level, teams are divided into divisions most appropriate for the skill level of the team. South Sound Baseball does not conduct a draft. Instead, we promote the creation of teams centered around individual schools. This allows players the opportunity to play with friends and classmates. Once formed, a team may stay together through the entire program.
