All Star/Tournament Team Player Selection Process
12-11-year-old team (Sanctioned All-Star Team)
The 12-11-year-old team uses a ballot voting process to rank the players and select the team.
The ballots are voted on by three groups: 1) the players in Majors Division, 2) the Managers in Majors Division and 3) two rostered coaches from each team in Majors Division.
Each voter will select 12 players on the ballot. The voting will occur at the AJHS Little League field prior to the Memorial Day break. The ballots will be collected and counted by the President, Info Officers and Player Agent. Once the ballots are counted, the scores for each player are entered into a weighted formula giving the Managers’ votes the most emphasis. The top nine 12-year-old players will be placed onto All-Star team. The remaining players (3 to 5 depending on the size of the roster) will be selected by the All-Star Manager, provided they fall within the top 15 in the voting. The Manager will be privy to the ranking of the players for selection, although discretion is allowed to Manager. The intent of discretion will allow selection of a lower ranked player if that player fills a playing gap on the field that is not obtained with top 9 players (e.g. Catcher, Pitcher, etc). The goal of Aptos Little League is to assemble the most competitive All-Star team while balancing an All-Star opportunity for each playing age group.
11-10-year-old team (Sanctioned All-Star Team)
The process for the 11-10-year-old team is identical to the 12-11-year-old team, except this particular team will be comprised solely of 11-year-old players in Majors.
10-9-year-old team (Sanctioned All-Star Team)
Similar to the 12 and 11-year-old teams, the 10-9-year-old team is assembled based on rankings. However, a ballot system will not be used with this team. This team will be made of 10-year-old players from the AAA Division. The rankings of all 10-year-olds will be determined by the AAA Managers only. These rankings will be submitted to the player agent who will average the rankings. Players ranked 1-9 will be placed onto All-Star team. The remaining 3-5 players will be selected by the All-Star Manager.
Please note, District 39 has decided not to host a 9-8-year-old or 8-7 year old tournament team this year.
