Forest Hill Field Usage: Due to the abuse of Harford County facilities by private, commercial and external organizations, as of June 1, all field usage at Forest Hill Rec facilities is by permit use only. 

Forest Hill Baseball and Softball teams have been issued permits. Teams not affiliated with Forest Hill Rec are not permitted to use the facilities.  Violators should be reported to the Sheriff's department, 410-838-6600, which will summon the Harford County Sheriff's Department to escort them off the field.

Corona Virus Update:  As of Wednesday May 20, Baseball and Softball Travel teams may resume limited practice under the following guidelines:

No more than 10 people (including coaches/parents) on a field– (this will be strictly enforced). 

Parents must remain in the parking lot.

6  ft distance must be maintained.

Participation is voluntary.

Harford County Public School property is NOT allowed to be used.  That means Fields 8, 9, 10 and 12 are off-limits.

Fall Rec Baseball registration, if we are allowed to have a season, will begin in late June.
