What is it about baseball and softball that draws kids back year after year? Why do we romanticize about the “Field of Dreams” and rally around our favorite teams? The Cubs…the Sox…which side are you on? Maybe it’s the strategy, the skill or the suspense. Or, it could be the fact that everyone can play. Baseball doesn’t require a certain height, speed or weight. All you need is a willingness to do your best.
Registration is now underway for Spring Youth Baseball and Youth Softball. Read More »
The health and safety of our participants and staff is of utmost importance to the Hoffman Estates Park District (HEPD). An outbreak of the measles has been reported in the neighboring community of Palatine. Because measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease, we ask that these individuals who have symptoms of measles or may have been exposed refrain from using Park District services. We urge everyone to educate themselves on the disease, its symptoms, and the benefits of being vaccinated.
