To say the 2020 season has been faced with a “curveball” would be a gross understatement.  A huge thanks to the WPPA Board, the Chicago Park District, Asimow Landscaping, our Umpire Crew and the WPPA Community for helping find a way to letting youth baseball and girls softball happen this summer.

Players on the 12U Softball Florida Gators play it safe and wear masks in the dugout.

Of course, everything is a little different this year.  For everyone’s safety, and to comply with local, state and federal guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19, we had to make some changes in rules and protocols for gathering, practicing, playing, umpiring and attending WPPA events.   Please make sure to review our Guidelines for WPPA’s Safe Return to Play to ensure everyone coming to Welles Park and our neighboring parks to enjoy youth baseball and girls softball safely and responsibly.
