The Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department, in following the Phase I Guidelines from the State of Louisiana, has approved the restarting of baseball and softball for youth in Lafayette Parish.

The chartered youth associations under the auspices of the Parks and Recreation Department can continue with team registration and the drafting process. Once the teams are formed, organized practice sessions can be held at the various parks. Official games may begin any time after June 1, 2020, and the season will conclude on or before July 17, 2020. There will not be any postseason or all-star events at the conclusion of the 2020 season.

The participation for 2020 is voluntary and if any youth that previously registered is not willing to play, a full refund will be processed by the youth organization. Parents are asked to contact the neighborhood officials with any concerns or questions.
