Carmel Baseball

Baseball is a classic American sport, so naturally Carmel has plenty of opportunities to participate.

 

The Monterey Elite is a baseball team that focuses on youth development. The team is sponsored by Monterey PONY Baseball and is entirely not for profit.

 

There is also the Carmel Youth Baseball team. The Carmel Youth Baseball team plays for PONY, which is an acronym for “Protect Our Nation’s Youth.” The organization is also a non-profit that focuses on helping younger participants have successful futures. The local team hopes to expand its program to encompass youth participants from other surrounding areas, as well.

 

As far as professional baseball goes, both the Oakland A’s and the San Francisco Giants play no more than three hours from Carmel. The short drive is worth a true baseball viewing experience.
