Ramona Pony baseball held its 32nd annual RBI Tournament May 23-26, drawing 56 teams, over 115 campers and more than 10 vendors.

The invitational was held at the Pony Baseball fields at Ramona Community Park where many visiting families parked their RVs and campers for the four-day event, some with premium views of the fields.

Many families set up canopies outside the fields where they relaxed in the shade and picnicked. Pony baseball volunteers kept busy cooking in the snack shack. A home run derby was held Saturday night and families watched an outdoor movie — “The Sandlot” — on Sunday night.
