Every spring, League President Arnie Durazo says he looks forward to the opening ceremony, as it is an opportunity to honor and celebrate a truly extraordinary organization that he now has the privilege of leading. And this year is no exception.
Come share in the unique experience of the American spirit, enthusiasm and joy of America’s game played the way it was intended, a kids’ game. Relive the joy of Baseball: community involvement, the building of character and the structuring of Santa Clarita children in a positive endeavor. Protect Our Nations Youth, the true meaning of PONY baseball.
William S. Hart Baseball and Softball has a long history in the Santa Clarita Valley.
In fact, many of the volunteers once played at Hart as kids. Today, they make it possible for our community to share in the same experiences that helped shaped them.
The organization was formed in 1955 as the William S. Hart Little League – named after the famous star of silent movies that made his home in Newhall. In 1970, Hart changed its affiliation to PONY Baseball and in 1984, the Girls’ ASA Softball program was added. Please visit the Hart website for more information, hartbaseball.org.
Opening day begins at 9:00 am at the William S. Hart Union High School Complex located at 23780 Auto Center Court, Santa Clarita, CA 91355.
