Englewood Police Youth Baseball League

Funded by Get In Chicago, Englewood Police Youth Baseball League was established in 2015 to strengthen relationships between Chicago Police and youth of the Englewood community through baseball. Chicago police officers volunteer as coaches and mentors to Englewood youth. Teamwork Englewood established and manages the EPYBL. Games and practices take place at Hamilton Park Cultural Center.

The EPYBL’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.

Eligible EPYBL participants are ages 9-12 boys and girls. The 2018 season kicks off May 1st and ends mid-August. Through mentoring and baseball, we look forward to creating a wonderful and enlightening experience for the community, youth, and parents of Englewood!
