It was the first time the 12 All-stars played together and the first time they played under rules allowing them to steal bases and take first base on a walk (current Pony rules for their age group prohibit stealing and walks).
The Brentwood Pinto division fields 17 teams made up of players ages 8 and 9. Each Brentwood Pony manager selected two to three top players to try out for the All-Star team and represent Brentwood Pony in the Pony World Series. The team was then selected by all Pinto Division managers. The team will play in two to three tournaments before going on to play in the Pony League World Series.
