2021 ALL-STARS 




PLAYER NOMINATIONS:

Each coach will nominate up to 5 players from their team to participate in the All-Star tryouts. Some things to consider when determining players to nominate.

  • Batting and Pitching statistics

  • Base running abilities

  • Fielding abilities

  • Positions played or could play

  • Situational awareness

  • Please nominate ONLY All-Star caliber players. If you have fewer than 5 that is okay as other teams may have more than 5 to round out the talent pool. If your team has more than 5, reach out to your division direct prior to sending out the nominations to your team.

*It is important that coaches be transparent with each other about the skills AND behaviors of their players and what they have observed of players on other teams.


PLAYER SELECTION:

Player selection meeting will immediately follow tryouts. All coaches should attend the player selection meeting to ensure that their player gets proper representation for their skills, abilities, and season stats. 

Each team must carry a minimum of 12 players and a maximum of 14 players. 

Head coaches (assistant coach/team representative if coach is unavailable) will by blind ballot force rank their top 5 players from top to bottom. 

Point system to be used: 1st = 5 points, 2nd = 4 points, 3rd = 3 points, 4th = 2 points, 5th = 1 point. The top 5 players receiving the most points will be selected to the All-Star team.  The same process will be utilized to select players 6-10. 

11th and 12th players for each team will be selected by the nominated Head Coach.


    In the event of a tie:

Tiebreaker: Following a discussion among coaches regarding players skill level and needs of the All-Star team, a re-vote will be taken in order to determine which player is selected. If re-vote results in another tie, All-Star coach will cast tie breaking vote.




COACH SELECTION:

Immediately following the selection of the 10th player All-Star Head Coach is voted using blind ballot. Head Coach will then pick two Assistant Coaches.
