County accepting ballfield permit applications today
February 5, 2019
The Allegheny County Parks Department will accept ballfield permit applications from organized baseball, softball and soccer leagues from Tuesday, Feb. 5, through Monday, Feb. 25. Applications must be filed in person by team representatives during normal business hours at the park offices where the requested ballfields are located. A certificate of insurance is required with an application for a league permit.
Due to anticipated construction, the three ballfields located on the South Park Fairgrounds may not be available at the beginning of the season. Organizations that are interested in using the fairgrounds ballfields should discuss options with South Park office staff when filing their applications.
General release of open ballfield dates will begin on Tuesday, March 12, for those interested in scheduling casual/picnic games. Applications for these games must also be filed in person at the park offices where the requested ballfields are located.
Acceptance of an application does not guarantee that a permit will be issued for the date requested. All required fees must be paid in full at the time a permit is issued.
