summer all-stars

The Summer baseball/softball season is upon us! To ensure you have a full understanding of the commitment required, please read the following information so you can make a well-informed decision about whether your player should tryout for the summer teams.

All-Star teams are chosen with the intent of competing at the highest level. Every All-Star candidate must meet the following criteria: eligibility, availability, ability and attitude/effort. Should your player be selected to the team, you are confirming your commitment to the summer All-Star team.

• Players must meet age eligibility requirements. Ages for All-Star teams are determined by the official 2024 Little League “League Age” Baseball & Softball rules.
• Players must have played in at least 8 regular season MALL games.

***SUMMER BASEBALL REGISTRATION ***

Being involved in All-Stars requires a level of dedication and commitment beyond the normal requirements of a regular season. All-Star Tournament play is highly competitive and will require more focus and a committed effort to succeed on the part of the players and their parents.

• Parents are responsible for providing documentation needed to prove age and residency eligibility. You will be provided detailed guidance on the documents required once teams are confirmed.

• Players must be available for all practices and all games. Beginning in mid-June, players should expect 6 practices/games per week from the start of the summer season until the final game. Parents are responsible for ensuring players attend all practices and games.

Cost for the summer baseball season is $225 (includes $30 contribution to snack stand). If your player is chosen for a team, a follow-up communication will be sent with payment instructions.

Depending on your level of play, when the tournaments start and how far in the tournament your team advances, your player’s All-Stars experience could end up lasting through the month of July or longer.
