Members of Rotary and HBA plan informational event for Nov. 7

The crowds of spectators were sparse and coaches wore masks in deference to pandemic safety requirements, but youth baseball finally got under way in Homewood on Saturday with games at the Izaak Walton ball fields. 

The season originally was scheduled to launch on April 18 with the usual parade from downtown Homewood to Izaak Walton, ceremonial first pitches, prize giveaways and other opening day ceremonies. The state, however, was in the middle of a shut down ordered by Gov. J.B. Pritzker in an attempt to stem the rising spread of COVID-19.
