Field Use Update

We have spoken with representatives of the Park District and the Buffalo Grove Police Department, and have the following information to share:

The fields MAY be used as long as ALL persons on the field are living in the SAME house. Face Covering rules apply as usual for outdoor spaces, and can be found here.

If the Buffalo Grove Police approach you and ask you to leave the field please comply with the officer's request and leave the field immediately. Please email me (presid[email protected]) and I will look into the situation. The police asking you to leave the park is indeed a lawful command on their part and it is our official stance that you comply.

Keep in mind that batting practice rules are in effect as always meaning that:
1. All batters MUST wear an approved batting helmet.
2. The 3 Emmerich Fields require a fully dressed catcher or having a screen protection of some sort so pitched baseballs do NOT hit the backstops.

Also, restroom facilities are limited as Portable Toilets are not yet allowed and the Emmerich Bathrooms have not been re-opened by the Park District since the Winter.
