A player pool made up of Mustang players will be compiled by the Player Agents of the Mustang and Bronco divisions.

To be eligible for the player pool, the Mustang Player must meet the following requirements:
Turn ten years old by August 31st of the current year
Or, be recommended to enter the pool by their Mustang coach

In the event that a Bronco team cannot field a minimum roster (9-10 players), the Bronco coach can contact the Bronco player agent and request a player (or players if more than one is needed) from the player pool for the game which has a shortage of Bronco players.
The Player Agent will then contact the player at the top of the Player Pool to see if they are able to play for the Bronco team. Once a Mustang player plays in a Bronco game, they go to the bottom of the player pool.
Bronco teams must adhere to the minimum playing requirements with the Mustang player.
A Mustang player filling in cannot pitch in a Bronco game.
The Mustang player participating in a Bronco game will wear his/her full Mustang uniform unless a Bronco uniform is made available.
