Officers were told a man pulled a gun during an argument about the game, police said.
The man took out the weapon and pointed it at several people, repeating that he had a gun, police said. Several players had their families, with children, present at the park.
The man did not fire the weapon and no one was hurt, police said. Officers recovered the loaded gun from the scene.
The suspect, Jaime Gutierrez, 20, of the 3600 block of West Leland Avenue in the Albany Park neighborhood, was charged felony counts of unlawful use of a firearm and possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number, police said.
Gutierrez, who told officers he is a gang member, was also charged with misdemeanor counts of possession of a firearm without a FOID card, possession of ammunition without a FOID card and reckless conduct.
He is scheduled to appear in court for a bond hearing Monday.
