Article IX – Selection of All Star Players and Managers

 

SECTION 1

The process for the selection of the players to each of the All-Star Teams is defined herein by the authority of the Board, with the intent of following Little Minor League’s recommended processes and having the players select All-Star Players and Teams, as much as possible. If a Team and/or Player selection scenario occurs that is not specifically addressed and accounted for within these By-Laws, the Board will determine the modification(s) necessary to the selection process for that season. There shall be up to fourteen (14) players selected per team, as stipulated by Little League rules.

Player availability will be subject to rules set by the Board. To participate on any All-Star team, a player’s parent (Guardian) MUST AGREE IN WRITING that the player will be available for the entire All-Star tournament time frame. The parent (guardian) will submit a signed copy of the All-Star application.  This application is provided to each eligible player by the Players’ Agent in that division. Although there are multiple teams, each player is only eligible to be on one team and need only submit one application.

The All-Star period typically runs from mid-June through the entire month of July, depending on how far the team advances. Any violation of this agreement can and will result in the player being immediately removed from the All-Star team.  The President and the applicable Player’s Agent may grant a waiver of this requirement with approval from the Board.

Any manager granting such waiver without the expressed approval of the President or the Applicable Players’ Agent may be removed from their position by the President with approval from the Board.

For purposes of this Article IX, Section 1, the applicable Players’ Agent shall be defined as; Little League (Major) Division Players’ Agent for the 10-11-12 Year-old “Little League” Team and the 9-10-11 Year-old Team, and Minor League Players’ Agent for the 8-9-10 Year-old Team(s).  

The teams are formed in the following order (provided there are enough players for these teams):

  1. The 10-11-12 year old team;
  2. The primary 8-9-10 year old team;
  3. The 9-10-11 year old team; and
  4. The secondary 8-9-10 year old team.


SECTION 2

10-11-12 Year-old “Little League” Team:  There shall be up to fourteen (14) players selected. The Board shall determine the selection of the players to this team. Subject to Little League Rules (including, without limitation, the residency requirements) any player League age 10,11 or 12, who has participated as an eligible player on a Little League (Major) Division or Minor League team during the regular season is eligible for the 10-11-12 Year-old Team. The Manager and Coaches shall be appointed by the President and approved by the Board.

It is the intent of the League to make this team the most competitive All-Star Tournament team.  For this reason, this is the first team to be selected.

The selection process for the 10-11-12 Year-old “Little League” Team shall be:

  1. Player Agent issues All-Star application forms (as described in section 1) to all eligible players in the Major division.
  2. Players who wish to be considered for the All-Star team submit a signed copy of the application to the Player Agent.
  3. Based on the applications received, the Player Agent prepares the All-Star ballot and issues them to all Little League (Major) Division players who vote for twelve (12) All-Stars (when there are sufficient number of teams and eligible players in the selection pool, players cannot vote for players on their own team.  When the prohibition on voting for players on their own team would create an inequity in the voting balance, the players may be allowed (with prior Board approval) to vote for players on their own team). The top twelve (12) players with the most votes are selected to the 10-11-12 Year-Old All-Star Team.
  4. Up to two (2) additional players may be added to the roster (these optional picks do not have to be executed). These selections are initiated by the All-Star Manager and/or the Board. It is the intent of this process for the All-Star Manager and Board to collaborate and agree upon the selections, however, the Board has the authority to select players without approval of the All-Star Manager.
  5. Should the initially confirmed team require substitute player(s) (e.g. due to injury or availability), the All-Star Team Manager selects the player(s), pending Board approval.  NOTE: It should be noted that these additional picks will likely affect the 9-10-11Year0Old All-Star team, after that team has been selected.
  6. The Board confirms the 10-11-12 year old team as constituted by the above process.


SECTION 3

The Manager and Coaches shall be appointed by the President and approved by the Board. 

It is the intent of this team to specifically give 11-year olds experience and development in All-Stars. Therefore, in creating the team, priority should be given to 11-year olds, meaning if there is an eligible 11-year-old, that player should be placed on the team prior to selecting a 10-year-old. It is preferred that 10-year olds play on an 8-9-10 Year-Old All-Star Team(s), and are placed on the 9-10-11 Year-old Team only if there are not enough 11-year olds to field a 9-10-11 Year-old Team. The 9-10-11Year-old Team is to be selected after the first 9-10-Year-old Team.

The selection process for the 9-10-11 Year-old Team shall be:

  1. The players to be considered for this team are also considered for the 10-11-12 year old team.  They submit a signed application and are placed on the ballot for the 10-11-12 year old team.  This is the same process listed above for the 10-11-12 year old team. 
  2. Once the 10-11-12 year old team has been selected, the next twelve (12) 11-year olds with the most votes from the 10-11-12 year old player voting, who do not to make the 10-11-12 Year-Old Team, will be selected to 9-10-11 Year-Old team.

  4. Should the initially confirmed team require substitute player(s) (e.g. injury or availability), the All-Star Team Manager selects the player(s), pending Board approval.
  5. The Board confirms the 9-10-11 Year-old Team as constituted by the above process.


SECTION 4

8-9-10 Year-old Team(s):  The Board shall determine how many teams shall enter the 8-9-10 Year-old All Star Tournament. There shall be up to fourteen (14) players selected for each team. The Board shall determine the selection of the players to the team(s). Subject to Little League Rules (including, without limitation, the residency requirements) any player League age 8, 9 or 10, who has participated as an eligible player on a Minor League or Little League (Major) Division team during the regular season, is eligible for the 8-9-10 Year-old Team.

  6. The votes would be weighted as follows:
    1. Minor League players vote for players on other teams with a 20% weighted vote.
    2. Managers vote for players across all teams with a 60% weighted vote.
    3. Coaches vote for players on other teams with a 20% weighted vote.
  7. The top twelve (12) players (less the number of automatically placed players from Major division) with the most votes are selected to the first 8-9-10 year old All-Star team.
  8. Up to two (2) additional players may be added to the roster (these optional picks do not have to be executed). These selections are initiated by the All-Star Manager and/or the Board. It is the intent of this process for the All-Star Manager and Board to collaborate and agree upon the selections, however, the Board has the authority to select players without approval of the All-Star Manager.
  9. Should the initially confirmed team require substitute player(s) (e.g. injury or availability), the All-Star Team Manager selects the player(s), pending Board approval.NOTE: It should be noted that these additional picks will likely affect the second 8-9-10 team, after that team has been selected.

  2. The Minor League’s Player Agent names the next three (3) players to the second team. It is intent of this process to have the named players be those recommended by Minor League’s Managers. In instances when there are fewer than nine (9) player receiving votes and/or fewer than 12 players overall, the Board will decide on how to select the remaining players needed.
  3. Up to two (2) additional players may be added to the roster (these optional picks do not have to be executed). These selections are initiated by the All-Star Manager or the Board. It is the intent of this process for the All-Star Manager and Board to collaborate and agree upon the selections, however, the Board has the authority to select players without approval of the All-Star Manager.
  4. Should the initially confirmed team require substitute player(s) (e.g. injury or availability), the All-Star Team Manager selects the player(s), pending Board approval.
