Magnolia Little League All Star Information

It is the intent of the Magnolia Little League Board to field teams that will best represent our League in competition and character. All selection decisions regarding All-Star teams are made with Board and District approved requirements for All Stars and in compliance with Little League International rules and regulations. 

Several characteristics influence our selection process for Players and Managers for the All-Star teams:

  • Attitude, hustle, team spirit, team leadership
  • Overall character, integrity, and sportsmanship
  • Skill-level and ability to compete

Eligibility to play in Magnolia Little League is outlined in 'Regulation II - League Boundaries' which can be found in the Little League Baseball Official Regulations, Playing Rules, and Operating Policies (aka the "Blue Book"): 

"Only those participants whose residence or the physical location of the school where they attend classes is within the boundaries of the league shall be eligible to participate." 

All-Star District and State Tournament information can be found on the D8 website here.

All Stars - Eligibility

All MLL baseball players League Age 9 and up are eligible for consideration for an MLL All-Star team.  MLL can field the following All-Star teams:

  • 12 year-old team consists of 12-14 players Little League age 10, 11 and 12
  • 11 year-old team consists of 12-14 players Little League age 9, 10 and 11
  • 10 year-old team consists of 12-14 players Little League age 8, 9 and 10
  • All-Star practice will begin in the middle of June following the MLL Tournament, and the All-Star season will end in July (exact dates are TBD), unless the team is successful in District playoffs.  All-Stars will participate in pre-tournament(s) in addition to practice and the actual D8 Tournament.
  • Playing All-Stars is a significant commitment by the player and family as All-Star players must attend all practices and games unless there is a compelling reason for an absence (e.g. medical appointment).  Excused absences do not include conflicts with other sports or tournaments (such as Hoopfest in Spokane which typically runs during the same time period).  Please note that players will be removed from the team if they miss several All-Star practices.
  • In order to be considered eligible for an MLL All-Star team, the parent or guardian must submit completed Letter of Intent (LOI) registration (please see below).

All-Star Tournament Team Selection - Baseball

11 year-old & 12 year-old teams

  • Selection by Players:
    • The Majors players, casting ballots, select the first 6 players per team.
    • For the 12 year-old team, a ballot list is generated consisting of all existing Majors players who have offered consent (Letter of Intent) to play All-stars.
    • For the 11 year-old team, a ballot list is generated consisting of all existing Majors players who have offered consent (Letter of Intent) to play All-stars.
    • If there are more than twelve eligible 10 year-old players in Majors, who have filed a Letter of Intent, then a ballot list is generated.
    • Once the ballots are generated the Player Agent distributes to Majors Managers to collect the vote of current Majors players.
  • This process is as follows:
    • Each existing major player (voter) is provided with 1 ballot form at a time. Player will vote for 5 players on the ballot at each level.
    • Team Voting order is as follows: 12 year-old team, 11 year-old team, 10 year-old team (if needed).
    • Top 5 vote recipients make the each team.

10 year-old team

  • All 10 year olds in the Majors division are automatically placed on the 10 year old team if they have filed a Letter of Intent for All-Stars if they have not been selected to the 12 or 11 year old team.
  • If there are twelve or fewer eligible 10 year old players, the balance of the team, up to twelve players, is selected by a AAA regular season managers committee (see Selection by Managers section below).
  • The All-Star Manager has an option to select an additional 0, 1 or 2 players (see Selection by All-Star Manager section below).

Player Selection by Managers:

  • Once the ballots are completed by the existing major players (voters) the Player Agent generates a report of ballot standings and calls a managers meeting that includes Majors Managers, Player Agent and league division Commissioner.
  • Managers nominate players from their team and support nomination with stats and other commentary.
  • After all nominations are made, managers vote independently casting their votes in writing to the players’ agent for 5 players.
  • Top vote recipients make the team. Example: If two players tie for top spot with four votes they make the team.
  • Then managers vote again for remaining positions (in the prior example that would be for each of the 3 remaining player openings).
  • The top vote recipient makes the team and the process is repeated until 12 positions are filled.

Player Selection by All Stars Manager:

  • Once named, the All-stars manager for each team has an option to select an additional 0, 1 or 2 players from the remaining LOI submissions.

All Star announcement:

 By Rule, All-Star teams cannot be announced prior to June 1.  Each season the MLL Board of Directors will determine the specific release date of teams. Typically All Star announcements are made the day after MLL Championship Saturday.
