2020 Northbrook 4th of July Tournament Canceled

June 1, 2020 -- Though we had hoped to avoid it, the Northbrook Baseball Board of Directors last week determined that the most appropriate course of action is to cancel our 4th of July baseball tournament for this year. 

We hope that canceling a month in advance will provide all teams the opportunity to make other plans for July 4th weekend this year. We also hope that you will consider coming back to play in the 2021 edition of our tournament. 

Importantly, all teams that had registered for this year's tournament will receive refunds of their registration fees. We are currently working with our payment processor to coordinate refunds and will have more information for you later this week. We thank you in advance for your patience as we work through this. 

Thank you,

May 29: Northbrook Baseball House League Update

The Northbrook Baseball Board of Directors met this week to discuss how and when we can begin House League practices and games while operating in a safe and healthy manner. We reviewed the State of Illinois guidelines and the Northbrook Park District guidelines and then added a few additional safety rules to protect our players, coaches, and umpires.

Based on the State moving into Phase 4 of the reopening plan by July 1st, we are excited to announce that we should be able to start House League practices in July and plan to start the season around August 1st, with the World Series to be Played around September 3rd. The season will consist of about 10 games followed by a single-elimination playoff.  In addition, we also plan on hosting an All-Star game.

All coaches will be required to wear protective masks when they will come within 6 feet of anyone. We also plan to supply 2 sets of catcher's masks per team with disinfectant spray used after each inning to clean the mask. There will be other safety measures as well, which will be posted on our website before practices begin. 

While we are very excited for the season to start, we want to do so in the safest way possible. When we determine the schedule, we will email your coach who will in turn forward that email to you. 

Thank you!
