Get More Involved at Hart
Hart Baseball and Softball is a non profit organization run 100% on volunteer effort. Parents (and grandparents!) have been making Hart the best PONY/ASA league around for over 60 years. It takes over 120 'man hours' per week just to keep the league open. Double that when the canteen and Batter's Box are open.

If you would like to join the team of dedicated volunteers, there are positions open on the Board of Directors as well as the Auxiliary Board. Please see our Volunteer section for more information and details on whom to contact to get signed up.

Hart Needs Umpires
Calling All Umpires (and those who want to be).

William S. Hart PONY Baseball is looking to expand our roster to cover a growing league.  If you want the best seat in the house (but you'll have to stand), come to one of the three orientation meetings on the 4th, 5th, or 6th of December.  The meetings on the 4th and 5th will start at 7pm and the meeting on the 6th will begin at 9am.  All meetings will be approximately one hour in length.  

The qualifications are :
1.  Minimum age is 16 yrs old by Spring Break.
2.  You are not a member of a high school baseball team (a member of a Hart team is OK).
3.  A 100% commitment to the training program and to the Hart League.

For more information, contact the Chief Umpire, Jim Betbeze
