YOUTH ASSOCIATION OF NORTHEAST PENSACOLA, INC.
-- OFFICIAL LEAGUE RULES AND REGULATIONS --

Dizzy Dean rules do not mandate the wearing of face shields on player helmets. However, the NEP Board of Directors has voted to require baseball players to wear face shields on their helmets until they are in the 11-12 year old Freshmen League. Since Dizzy Dean 11-12 year old players are allowed to steal bases "off of the pitcher" and there are pick-off plays where players often return to base head-first, there is a greater likelihood of neck injuries resulting from greater contact with the face shield. Although increased pitching distances in this age group allow for greater hitter reaction time for dangerous pitches, managers need to evaluate players on a case-by-case basis to account for those players less likely to react quickly to inside pitches, particularly in the first weeks of the season. In the case of players who might be slower to react to pitches, face shields should remain on their helmets. Any parent not wanting his/her child to remove the face shield in ANY age group exercises ultimate prerogative on the matter, just as they do with the wearing of any optional protective gear.
