Sheriff Encourages Parks to Participate in “Play Ball” Program

The “Play Ball” program is designed to help jump start spring and the baseball season for the youth of Cook County. The Sheriff’s Work Alternative Program (SWAP) completes a three-step process that includes a clean-up of all debris/garbage, first cut of grass and weed wacking, and then dragging and stripping the infield.

SWAP is currently asking Cook County park districts to contact 312-433-6351 and sign up a park or field in their community that is in desperate need of repair. Actual renovations will begin prior to the start of baseball season.
