South Salem All Star Tournament Information

Welcome to All-Stars! 

Here you will find information on the post-season tournament, known as All Stars.

The Little League Baseball and Softball World Series are international tournaments held by Little League. Since 1947, the baseball tournament has been held annually in August in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania and broadcast nationally on ESPN.

To qualify for the Little League World Series, teams from local Little Leagues across the world begin competition at the District level. Winning teams advance to the state and regional levels, before qualifying for the World Series.

Subject to manager, coach, and player availability, SSLL may apply for the following All Star teams:

*Age 8, 9 and 10 Year Old Baseball and Softball
*Age 9, 10 and 11 Year Old Baseball and Softball
*Age 10, 11 and 12 Year Old Baseball and Softball Little League (Majors)
*Age 11, 12 and 13 Year Old Baseball Intermediate (50/70)
*Age 12, 13 and 14 Year Old Baseball and Softball Junior 

The tournaments start at the District level, and teams must win their way to advance through the International Tournament. The 8  to 10 Year-Old and 9  to 11 Year-Old Tournaments culminate at the State Level, while the Little League (Majors), Little League Intermediate (50/70) Baseball, Junior League, and Senior League divisions all conclude at a World Series Tournament. 

In all divisions, any eligible player who has participated in 60 percent of the regular season games by the start of Tournament Play in their respective district is eligible to play. All players who meet all residency/school, age, and participation eligibility requirements  can be nominated for All-Stars.

 Commitment Links

It is an honor to be selected as a member of an All-Star team!

There is also a substantial commitment of time and effort required to participate. Teams typically practice multiple times per week beginning mid-June. The number of practices and scrimmages vary by team, but three to five afternoon, evening, or weekend practices or scrimmages a week is common.

All-Stars ends whenever tournament competition ends. The district tournaments usually begin the last week of June or first half of July. The district tournaments may end as late as mid-July. Teams that win their district tournament advance to their respective Oregon state tournaments, which may occur in mid to late July. Most tournaments are double elimination. This means that teams will play until losing twice. The goal for teams is to progress as far into tournament play as possible.

Players must make best efforts to attend all practices and scrimmages during the All Star season. Players must be available for all games until their team is eliminated from tournament play.
