Park Board’s Summer Ball Leagues Begin June 15

The Springfield-Greene County Park Board has announced that summer ball leagues will resume on June 15, the first day that the city of Springfield’s Road to Recovery order allows contact sports.

The Park Board’s spring and summer leagues were delayed indefinitely in March by state and local stay-at-home orders. The new orders will allow a summer season of June 15 through early August.

Several youth age groups are already full with teams that had pre-registered because of new restrictions, and capacity on remaining leagues is limited.

The parks will have restrictions in place due to COVID-19 including the spacing out of game times; limiting the number of spectators to 50 percent of capacity; and increased cleaning and sanitizing of common areas. Players will be discouraged to share equipment and those involved in a game as asked not to show up until 15 minutes before game time.

Practice fields will only be available by reservation.

All visitors to the sports complexes will be asked to maintain a six-foot distance from others and take COVID-19 precautions as recommended by the CDC and the Springfield-Greene County Health Department.
