UPDATE: 2014 tryout schedule announced

January 20, 2014


Kirkland Pony Baseball holds tryouts to make every effort to achieve competitive balance and assure a positive experience for all. There is no pressure; this is just an opportunity for coaches to get a feel for each player’s abilities. Everyone who signs up will be placed on a team.

Players are expected to attend at least one hitting and one fielding/running tryout session. If you are interested in pitching or catching you should attend a pitching tryout.

Be sure to bring appropriate gear, including layered clothing for outdoor sessions. Fielding/running tryouts will be on artificial turf, so wear appropriate shoes and no metal cleats. Cleats should be worn to the pitcher/catcher sessions at Stod’s.

Player drafts will be held shortly after tryouts. Team meetings will be scheduled starting in mid-February.

Here’s the tryout schedule (see maps of locations below):

Merchants, Stars win Firecracker titles

July 8, 2013


The Kirkland Merchants and the Seattle Stars are the champions of the 2013 Kirkland Pony Baseball Firecracker Tournament.

The Merchants broke open an close game with a late scoring burst to defeat the KBC Eagles, 8-4, to win the 14-year-old division.

Previously, the Stars jumped out to an early lead and never looked back in a 13-0 five-inning win over the upstart Bothell Pilots.

It was a terrific extra-long weekend of baseball under gorgeous skies in Kirkland. Thanks to everyone who came out, and we hope to see you all back next year.
