CNY Little League

All Star Player Selections

  • For baseball, kids vote on all star ballot & determine top 3 players for each league age they are associated with. For softball, the kids do not vote.

 

  • The head coach and 1st assistant coach from each team for each league will vote and select the remaining 9 players for baseball, or all 12 players for softball.

 

  • For players with similar talent levels, preference goes to older players who applied for all star consideration. Exceptions are evaluated when there is a lack of candidates in one age and/or there is a discrepancy in talent level.

 

  • If there are 10 year olds playing in majors the majors coaches have the ability to add votes to the tally for these players for the 9/10 year old team.

 

  • If there is a “tie” at the bottom of the 12 player roster, then the Head Coaches for the appropriate age level will go through an additional exercise of independently ranking each of the “tied” players to break the tie.

 

  • The Head Coach will have the option to select one additional player if he/she wants to carry 13 players. There are different LL tournament rules for mandatory playing time for teams with rosters of 13 than for rosters of 12 or under.

 

  • The Head Coach may NOT select his/her own child as the 13th player, unless there are only 13 applicants. If the Head Coach's child is not in the top 12, then the Head Coach will have the following options:
    • If, after ranking by all coaches, the Head Coach's child is ranked #13, the Head Coach may select their child.
    • If, after ranking by all coaches, the Head Coach's child is ranked below #13, AND there is a board approved alternate head coach, the currently selected head coach would need to cede their position to the alternate. At that point, the new head coach could select any of the remaining players as #13, or remain at 12.
    • If, after ranking by all coaches, the Head Coach's child is ranked below #13, AND there is NOT a board approved alternate head coach, the currently selected head coach could select #13 or remain at 12. The Head Coach's child would not be on the roster.
    • If, after ranking by all coaches, the Head Coach's child is ranked below #13, AND there is NOT a board approved alternate head coach, AND the head coach desires to step down knowing their child will not be on the roster, the board will search to find a replacement head coach.  The replacement head coach will not have a further say in the roster, as the team will have already been selected. 

     

  • If an All Star Team does not have a complete roster based on total number of applicants, the Head Coach may ask younger All Star applicants to “be brought up” to older team. The coach may ask whomever he/she chooses to ask in whatever order he/she chooses to. It is the player's/parents' decision as to whether they accept the offer.

 

  • The League will support 2 Teams at the 9/10 (baseball and softball) level if the number of applicants support two teams and the competitive level of 2nd team is deemed appropriate for All Star level baseball. This will be a board decision.
 
  • There is only one team for the 10/11 (baseball only) & 11/12 (baseball and softball) levels.
