2014 PONY World Series Bracket Taking Shape!
Host Washington, PA, along with Chesterfield County, VA (East Zone), Prague, Czech Republic (Europe), Levittown, Puerto Rico (Caribbean), Los Mochis, Sinaloa (Mexico) and Chinese Taipei (Asia-Pacific) have their opening game times set.
Host Area and three other U-S Zone championships are still up for grabs heading into Saturday night. Here's the latest update from the five remaining qualifying tourney:
Host Area Tournament (Vincentian Complex, McCandless Township, PA) -- Two PA teams remain: Boilers (2-0, Johnstown) and 2-1 Hempfield (2-1). The finals are set for Sunday, 10:00 am. Hempfield must beat Johnstown twice to earn the World Series berth. A Boilers' win moves the Johnstown squad back to the World Series for the seventh time since 2005.
East Zone Tournament (High Point, NC) -- After Friday's schedule was rained out, Chesterfield County, VA had to win four times on Saturday to win the title. The defending zone champions topped Hagerstown (MD), host High Point (NC) and previously unbeaten New Haven (CT) twice to earn their fourth berth in the PLWS since 2007.
CBC eliminated Hagerstown (14-8) to open the days' action. The Virginians then knocked out High Point (18-6) to ear a shot at New Haven, needing to win twice to advance. CBC won the first meeting, 13-10, then took the "if necessary" contest, 8-4, ending a long, but fruitful 12 hours of PONY Baseball.
North Zone Tournament (Coryell Field, Bay City, MI) -- At the conclusion of pool play, four teams head to the single elimination championship rounds Sunday. Bay County Blue (2-1) faces Central Michigan (2-1) at 11 am, followed by Bay County Red (3-0) against McCutcheon, IN (2-1). The winners play at 4:00 pm with the North Zone championship on the line. Bay County has won the last two zone titles and 5 of the last eight.
South Zone Tournament (Burleson, TX) -- Six teams remain alive, three in each division heading to Sunday's action. Brownsville (TX) and OSO Corpus Christi (TX) are both unbeaten in their divisions. Elimination games will feed into division finals. Texas Cobras play Friendswood, TX with the winner facing Brownsville. KC Titans (Houston, TX) face Bear Creek, FL with Corpus Christi awaiting the victor. The division winners square off in a single championship game Monday night. Brownsville is the defending zone champion, looking for a third trip to Washington since 2006.
West Zone Tournament (Whittier, CA) -- Santa Clara, CA has one division title. Long Beach, CA and defending zone champion Hilo, HI play Sunday morning for the other. A single game championship Sunday afternoon will decide the World Series berth. Santa Clara has reached the World Series since 1973. Hilo's berth last year was the first since 1987. Long Beach won the 2008 & 2012 titles and is seeking a fifth trip to Washington since 2007.
