Westwood Park Rules Reminder

 

We were very excited to kick off the In-House Baseball season last night, and the Travel Baseball season last night, and appreciate everyone who volunteered their time to coach and/or volunteer this year!

With that said, a few things were brought to our attention via multiple complaints.   While we our are own organization, we are expected to abide by the Westwood Park rules set forth by the Morton Park District.  

1) There are no pets allowed at Westwood Park.  The park district has a dedicated dog park near Northwoods Park.   Unfortunately there were several instances of messes left from dogs, one of which a player stepped in.  It is not the responsibility of our volunteers to pick up after animals.  Please refrain from bring your pets into the park, if you do so, we will unfortunately have to ask you to leave.

2) There is NO ALCOHOL allowed at Westwood Park.  There were several empty alcoholic beverage containers found around the fields this weekend.  For us to continue to to be able to operate the way we are allowed to, we must be able to show this is something we can control.   We ask that you do not bring alcohol on the premises, if anyone is found with alcohol, they will be asked to leave the park. 

3) Indoor Cage Rules:  if your child is using the indoor cage, there are absolutely NO CLEATS ALLOWED and NO SUNFLOWER SEEDS allowed.   Lately some people have worn cleats into the cages and turn up the turf floor with them, this is an extremely expensive fix that MYBA is responsible for.   Sunflower seeds and gum not only leave a mess for our volunteers to clean up, they also attract mice and ants, both of which are also destructive.

 

We are very excited about this year's season, and we hope you are too!  We would appreciate everyone following the park rules so we can continue to have baseball back in a normal environment now that we are allowed to.  If you have any questions, please do no hesitate to reach out.

 

Thank you,

MYBA Board of Directors.
