What are the All-Stars?
- Have shown improvement and displayed basic understanding of baseball fundamentals.
- Being an All-Star is more than just having the talent to compete. It is also about having good character, the right attitude, being a good sport and a good teammate.
- The player must have played 80 % of his/her team’s regular season games.
- Availability of the players and his/her families to meet commitments required of All-Stars
- Must meet all All-Star requirements and provide proof of age and league boundary verification.
- Each Team Manager will nominate players that should be considered for All-Star selection. Managers may nominate players on their own or other teams.
- Players will be nominated by the managers/coaches of all the regular season teams. Players can be nominated by any manager or coach from any team. Players will be nominated at the meeting or by notifying the player agent prior to the meeting. During the nomination process, the person that is making the nomination can add information that they feel is pertinent to their player being selected. The manager, first and second coach from the 3 prospective age divisions will select the All-Star teams.
- The All-Star Selection Committee will tally votes and communicate the players receiving the highest vote totals. These players will be considered tournament team selections. A player must get a majority of votes to be cast to a team.
- The All-Star Selection Committee will communicate the 2 players receiving the next highest vote totals. These players will be considered tournament team alternates. Alternates will be utilized in the event selected players are not able to fulfill their commitments.
Players must attend practices and games ready to participate actively, and thus should consider whether other activities may inhibit that commitment. We ask that if you know that your child will not be available for the duration of the All-Star season, please withdraw your children's name from the eligible list so that another deserving child has a chance at the All-Star experience.
If you think your player has a possibility of making All-Stars and you wish to participate, DO NOT schedule any travel plans through late May till middle of July.
Player Commitment Requirements
- Selected players must commit to 3 - 4+ weeks of intensive practice/game schedules. All-Star season goes through the end of May or through July, depending on how well the team does.
- There is a $75 fee per All-Star player which covers tournament entrance fee, jersey and hat. In addition, families can expect to purchase new baseball pants and accessories for their All-Star player. Parents/Guardians are responsible for any additional All-Star team expenses incurred which are not covered by the fee.
- Players and parents must be committed to and available for the entirety of the All-Star play. Consider that for every player selected, there are other players who would eagerly welcome the opportunity to play.
- Expect to play in local All-Star tournaments on most weekends and have 2-3 practices during the week. Tournaments sometimes start on Thursday or Friday, but they are usually Saturdays and Sundays. All-Star teams will usually have a double-header (2 games in one day) on at least one day during the tournament; sometimes on both days.
- Game locations can vary. While a lot of games are played on our Major’s field; out of city traveling/expenses may be required.
- Absences due to conflicts (i.e. other sports/vacations), unless approved by the All-Star Manager, will lead to suspension or dismissal from the team.
