Just a reminder that Dixie Youth baseball does not require face mask on batting helmets. However, North Carolina Dixie Youth Baseball gives each league the local option of wearing face mask. As you play in the tournament or practice games it is very possible that your team may be required to wear face mask by your local league but will be playing teams that do not.
