What Every Parent and Player Should Know About All-Stars 

It is an honor to be selected for an All-Star team.  Many players compete for a position on the team – not all players make the team.  To be considered as a qualified nominee, players must: (1) be available during the summer months to fully participate in all practices and games, (2) have exemplary skill levels, (3) have good attitudes, (4) be committed to winning and the team, and (5) be recognized by managers and coaches for their playing ability during the regular season: 

 

·       Skill Level – Each nominee must possess baseball skills in the top percentile of players within their age group, as determined by the regular season manger, All-Star manager and League Agent.

·       Attitude – The player must demonstrate respect for other players, coaches, umpires and league officials.

·       Commitment – Each player must be willing to commit him/herself completely to the All Star team and the schedule as set forth by the manager and tournament officials.  The player is required to attend EVERY practice and game and will not be excused without a valid reason.  Unexcused absences, as determined by the manager, may be penalized up to and including removal from the All-Star team. 

·       Regular Season Performance and Playing Ability – High levels of regular season performance and playing ability will be recognized by managers, and coaches via manager nominations and manager/coach voting on said nominees.
