All-Star Tournament brackets
are listed on the District 5 Website
in Acrobat PDF format.
Thornydale Little League has adopted the
following policies regarding All-Star tournament play. Players must have
participated in at least 50% of regular season games in order to be
eligible for All-Stars. The All-Star Permission form must be completed and
signed before a player can be considered for an All-Star team.
Parents and players must agree to all conditions of the All-Star
player's agreement. Failure to adhere to the agreement shall result in the
player's removal from the team. Managers and coaches do not have the
authority to override league policy.
A player that quits or is removed from an
All-Star team may not be eligible to participate in All-Stars the next
season. (Exception; medical with doctor's certification).
All-Star assessment fees will be decided at a
future date prior to the start of the All-Star season.
The duration of the All-Star commitment extends from June 15th
through September, as long as the team continues to advance, and may
include games, practices and activities on Sundays.
Parents will be expected to participate in tournament activities
such as but not limited to snack bar, scorekeeping, field maintenance,
chaperoning, and fundraising.
Additional expenses may be incurred by the player/parent during the
All-Star tournament such as travel expenses, food and accommodations.
The 2003 All-Stars will be announced on
June 15th, and the All-Star season will begin immediately. The all-star divisions are 9-10 year olds, 11-12 years olds,
juniors, and seniors. Playing All-Stars is a huge commitment on the part
of the players and their parents. All
players are expected to attend all practices and games. Some all-star teams will practice every day or even twice a
day for the first few weeks, because the District 5 tournament begins
around the 1st of July.
All mangers or coaches of record may apply
to become the manager of an All-Star team.
The Board of Directors and players will select the manager. If you wish to be considered,
please notify your player agent by May 31st.
The Board of Directors
selects all-Star managers. If
the Board of Directors recommends more than one manger candidate for any
division above Minor League, the players eligible for All-Stars of that
division will vote to select the manager.
Manager candidates must be approved as candidates by the Board of
Directors prior to the election. (See
Tournament Rules and Guidelines)
All-Star teams will have 12 players. The method for selecting All-Star Tournament Team players for
Major League and above will be the same as the method suggested in the
Little League Baseball Tournament Rules and Guidelines (Page T-2) for the
current year with the following exceptions.
Volunteer Umpires must have umpired in at least 10 games during the
season in order to vote. The
Player Agent will prepare a ballot with the names of all eligible
candidates for each All-Star team. Each
person voting will vote for up to the number of players to be on the team. When more than one player has an
equal number of votes for the last position, the All-Star manager will
cast a vote to break the tie. Eight
players will be selected by the Little League guidelines. The Manager of the team will
select the remaining 4 players. The
Board of Directors can veto any player(s) selected.
9-10 Year old All-Star selection Process: All candidates are
invited to an evaluation session. Team
managers from Major and Minor Leagues rate the players with standard
tryout scoring. The Board of
Directors will tabulate the scores. (The
high and low score from each candidate will be removed before tabulating.)
Eight players with the highest score will be selected. When more than one player has an
equal score for the last position, the All-Star manager will cast a vote
to break the tie. The All-Star manager will select the remaining 4
players. The Board of
Directors can veto any player(s) selected.
