MVLL Local Rules
Little League International has rules in place that must be followed by ALL leagues across the world. Within those Rules and Regulations there are options that are set by local leagues, as long as they do not contradict those that are set in the Rules and Regulations (aka, the “green” book). All managers of each division are given a copy of the green book, which can only be obtained by league officials.
In addition, each manager is given a copy of the Local Leagues Rules and Regulations, which goes further to clarify rules and to outline additional rules set by MVLL. To view a copy of our league’s local rules, download a copy under Downloadable Forms & Files.
If you would like clarification on any rule in the league, whether it be in the green book or the local rules, please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Board of Directors of MVLL
Mountain 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.
Starting 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.
Teams 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.
Majors (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.
50/70 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.
Official 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.
2018 Calendar Coming soon
Financial Commitment: MVLL 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.
Parent 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.
