The Shreveport Dixie Baseball Board of Directors decided
NOT TO OFFER SOFTBALL for the 2015 season. Thank you to the ones that have participated in the
past years but the softball program did not increase the way we had expected it to.
Louisiana Dixie Youth State
Board has accepted the state option on the new bat rule. The 2 5/8's, big barrel will not be legal for 2015 during Louisiana
Dixie Youth League play, except for the O-Zone division.
Face Mask Rule: The face mask on the batting helmet is still REQUIRED while playing league
at Shreveport Dixie Baseball. Our board took this rule under concideration, and with the child's safety the utmost concern,
adopted to keep the face mask on the batting helmets for league ages 1O and under. The face mask rule is optional for players
league age 11 years old and up. However Shreveport Dixie Baseball and Louisiana Dixie Youth highly recommends the use
of the protective face mask.
