New Requirements for Youth Baseball
As of January 1, 2017, The City of New York requires that all youth baseball leagues playing on ballfields in City parks must have an AED device and a trained responder made available at every league game and practice. Youth baseball leagues found to be in violation of this practice will be subject to warnings, fines, and denials of future permits.
NYC Parks will provide AEDs and training to league officials in advance of the 2017 spring season. If you have any questions and or concerns about this new policy, please email us.
