View Little League will again prepare to compete in All Stars. We will go through the Little League Approved
process to ensure due diligence is completed to ensure we put the best team
together and do it in a transparent process to protect the integrity of the All-Star
Process. The Process is no secret and
is outlined to ensure every child interested in being considered is given that
opportunity, and to give the parents a clear understanding of the process.
April, MVLL will distribute All Star Consideration forms to each child in
Minors, and Majors. Each child is
required to complete a form regardless if they are interested or not in
participating. We do this so we can get
an idea of how many kids are interested, and save the form in the event a
child/parent claim that they were not giving the opportunity to be
considered. MVLL will gather each form
by league age and will use that as a tool to determine the level of
participation and planning. The forms will
be required to be turned back into the league by April 27th.
are selected through a tryout, time permitting.
All coaches in both Minors and Majors are invited to participate in the
tryout and provide a documented feedback form on their respected
recommendation. The League and selected
All Star Manager will use that as a template to ensure we have looked at each
child and make the best recommendation for selection. MVLL will carry 12 to 13 kids on the roster.
(Little league): The All-Star team is
selected through a two-part process.
Those players that have completed and turned in an All-Star
consideration form will be put on a ballet.
Each player in majors will get to vote for 12 players, cannot vote for a
player on their team or themselves.
That vote is worth 1 point per vote.
The Managers on each of the Majors team will also get to vote for 12
players, again not for their team or their child. Each vote from a manager is worth 10 points
per vote. The total votes are then
counted by 3 board members that do not have a child participating in that
division. The league President, VP of
Admin and a designated board member will count the votes. Those votes are then kept under lock and key
until the All-Star Manager is selected, and to discuss the roster. The top 8 vote getters are automatically
qualified to the All-Star Roster. The
other 4 to 5 players will be a coach’s pick, but must be justified based on
need, and where the child was in the voting.
and Above: Teams are selected based on a
tryout and determined by the All-Star Manager and the assistance of the coaches
that participated in regular season play.
Announcement Date for All Stars is based on when the first scheduled game is
and we can back up 14 days to make it the official All Star Announcement Date.
Planning: All Star Play happens the last weeks of Jun
and can go through the month of July.
District Play is determined.
Practice starts usually the day after the announcement. MVLL hosts an All-Star BBQ. We introduce each player and have a fun
evening at the park. It is also a time for All Star Managers to have team
meetings and establish expectations and timelines. Families are asked that once
the child makes the team, they are required to make all practices and games as
it influences planning, and game time strategies. It is not fair for kids to be gone, when a
child that was available could be on the roster and contribute.

absorbs additional costs per player to include uniforms, insurance, and charter
fees. In order to offset that cost, MVLL
asks for a $125.00 fee to be paid once the child has made the All Star Team. Additional expenses such as travel, lodging,
and meals for play beyond the district tournament may arise, and the league and
each team work collectively to fundraise.
Little League does reimburse mileage for one round trip and is paid back
to the league after October 1st of the next fiscal year. If a team elects to purchase other items,
that is ok and we encourage sponsorships to offset those costs, so we can
minimize the direct financial expense to each family.
Support and Obligation:
Just like the regular season, we ask our parents to be supportive and
keep the interest of the team in mind.
The rules are different All Star’s and we want each family to understand
the objective is to win and keep moving forward. Mandatory Play does exist, but is different
to local regular season play.
MVLL Baseball Development Clinics:
MVLL Clinics are designed to give the kids additional work and also work
on additional skillsets that they may not be getting during the regular
season. The Clinics are run by volunteer
coaches and some invited skilled coaches to help the kids build on what they
have accomplished this year. The clinics
are open to everyone and any skill set.
This is not an ALL Star Tryout, but additional work and practice.
