The Phoenix City Council could vote today on reopening athletics field at city parks.

City parks and sports fields have been closed since April 2nd because of COVID-19-related emergency orders.

City councilors Thelda Williams, Jim Waring, and Sal DiCiccio have petitioned for a vote on reopening athletics fields.

The move comes as Arizona’s COVID situation has improved and has support from some youth sports leagues.

That includes the Scottsdale Cal Ripken Baseball League. The youth league is encouraging parents, coaches, and others to submit comments to the Phoenix City Council in support of reopening the fields.

The league has games and practices at facilities in Scottsdale and Phoenix including the Reach 11 complex. If Phoenix’s fields remain closed due to COVID, the baseball league says that will likely have to reduce the number of teams and players it can accommodate for the upcoming fall season.
