Baseball season is upon us and we are excited about new changes that will be taking place at the Zachary Youth Park Complex this spring. We have completed many renovations at the ball park during the off-season and are ready to kick-off an exciting season.
Effective this season, USSSA regulations and rules pertaining to bats WILL BE followed. The biggest modification involves the bat regulations, which we plan to highly enforce. USSSA bat regulations allow for both small barrel bats and big barrel bats. ALL BIG BARREL BATS MUST HAVE THE NEW USSA 1.15 STAMP IMPRINT. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE. Small Barrel bats must also have USSA approval written on the barrel. There will be no change, however, in how the league is operated. Other changes include starting the season at an earlier date. We feel this will give us the best opportunity to prepare players for a great season. We encourage you to sign-up online, at www.cityofzachary.org. Look for the baseball icon on the home page and follow the easy registration instructions. Parents are to be reminded that we will only have one sign-up day at the park. Please make a note of the following dates:
