Welcome to Chicago Westside Police and Youth baseball! In person practices will begin Tuesday, May 11. Regardless of the preferred park, practices will be on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, and Saturday mornings. Upon registration, each player will be issued an equipment bag which includes masks , hand sanitizer, disposable gloves, all equipment they will need. Any shared equipment will be sanitized before, during and after each practice. Gloves will be taken home after each practice to prevent glove-sharing. All possible measures including social distancing and limited number of players per square foot of green space will be monitored. Thankfully, baseball is a naturally socially distant sport and coaches have been instructed to only include drills and conditioning that keep participants spread out. Games are tentatively scheduled to begin June 5. Looking forward to a great season!
