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
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.
