Dixie Youth Baseball rule change for 2014 concerning the face mask has been changed to allow each state to require the face mask on the batting helmet or not.  Louisiana Dixie Youth Board of Director has past the following rule on the face mask:  The batting helmet with face mask is a player and parent option for all Leagues participating in Louisiana Dixie Youth Baseball. However LOUISIANA DIXIE YOUTH HIGHLY RECOMENDS THE USE OF THE FACE MASK ON BATTING HELMETS.
