Washington Stories and Tips

Pony League Baseball Capital of the World

This City of Washington is known even from my youth as the pony capital of the world. The concept was considered as most famous activities of the past. A desire to keep kids excited and motivated is how it started. PONY actually means Protect Our Nations Youth. And, protect; it did as it is reaching into its 50th Anniversary this year of 2001.

The league participates in the sports of softball and baseball. In the month of August,they will be celebrating the 50th Annual Pony League World Series in the town of Washington,Pa. The US Postal System shall be issuing a special cancellation stamp for their 50th Anniversary for you postage stamp collectors. Also, a Commemorative coin will be available too.

If you don't have a chance to visit Washington in the month of August, be assured you will have the opportunity to view its games on television broadcasted in many countries. Who knows, I may even show up and send you a "thumbs up" from there on the television.
