Baseball

Monterey Peninsula is no stranger to the classic game of baseball. Whether you are a youth who wants to play, an adult who is looking to play ball, or someone who would just like to catch a classic MLB game, you will be satisfied living in the Monterey Peninsula area!

 

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.

 

Pacific Grove has its own baseball and softball teams as well, referred to as the Pacific Grove Pony teams. These teams have committed to offering the city’s youth the opportunity to learn how to play fairly and competitively amongst their peers.

 

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.
