Funded by Get IN Chicago, Englewood Police/Youth Baseball League was established in 2015 to strengthen relationships between Chicago Police Department and youth of the Englewood community through baseball. Chicago Police Officers volunteer as coaches and mentors to Englewood Police/Youth Baseball League. Teamwork Englewood established and manages Englewood Police/Youth Baseball League. Games and practices take place at Hamilton Park Cultural Center.
Englewood Police/Youth Baseball League’s mission is to reduce negative attitudes, hostilities, and opposition of youth and their families to law enforcement; increase understanding of the experiences of inner-city youth among police officers; and create leadership opportunities for youth and their parents in community policing planning and implementation in the Englewood community.
Englewood Police/Youth Baseball League consists of boys and girls ages 9-12 and Spring/Summer 2015 season dates are May 5, 2015 until August 7, 2015.
Through mentoring and baseball, we look forward to creating a wonderful and enlightening experience for the community, youth, and parents of Englewood!
