All-Star Selection Procedures

ECLL uses a Manager nominee and Manager vote process for All-Star selections.  ECLL Board does not have any say in the All-Star voting process, it is strictly the Managers working together to form the best teams.  ECLL just mediates over the meeting.  Here is how All-Star selection works based on our Bylaws.

ARTICLE XXVII - ALL STAR SELECTION

Section 1. All matters pertaining to All Star balloting and player selection shall be kept in strict confidence until the league has made official All Star roster announcements. Violation of this shall result in disciplinary action by the Board of Directors and possible suspension from future league activities.

Section 2. Manager Selection: All Star Managers shall be appointed by the President and then voted on by the eBoard. A simple majority vote by the eBoard is required to approve such managers. All Star managers are representatives of East County Little League and therefore must be in good standing with the league. Managers that have a history of disciplinary action by the league and/or who will not represent the league in a positive fashion will not be considered. Typically, the following is to be used as a guideline by the President and eBoard when appointing All Star Managers, but is not a guarantee. Managers will not be allowed to manage more than one All Star team. If the below manager(s) is unwilling or deemed unsuitable, the President and eBoard reserve the right to appoint any manager he/she deems best suited and most deserving to manage an All Star team.

a) Senior BB(SB) Team – Senior BB(SB) playoff champion

b) Junior BB(SB) Team – Junior BB(SB) playoff champion

c) Intermediate (50/70) BB Team - Intermediate (50/70) BB playoff champion

d) 10-12 BB(SB) Team – Major BB(SB) playoff champion

e) 9-11 BB(SB) Team – Major BB(SB) playoff runner up

f) 9-11 Futures BB Team – To be determined by eBoard

g) 8-10 BB(SB) Team – AAA BB(SB) playoff champion

h) 8-10 Futures BB Team – AAA BB playoff runner up

Section 3. Coaches Selection: The manager shall submit the names of their 2 coaches subject to approval of the Board of Directors. They may only choose from among the other current managers and coaches within the divisions from which the players were selected.

Section 4. Player Selection: Each All Star team will consist of 13 players to be initially selected as detailed herein. In the event that any player selected is unable or unwilling to fulfill his/her All Star obligations for any reason, then a replacement player(s) may be chosen to fill the vacant roster spot(s). The decision as to whether or not a replacement player is needed and the selection of said replacement player shall be by mutual agreement between the team manager and the applicable Player Agent.
Initial selection of players shall be as follows:

a) Senior Baseball team: Players shall be chosen from among all Senior players of eligible age, who are in good standing, and have been active members of their Senior team for at least 60% of the regular season, with the exception of the High School Baseball season. Managers from the Senior Division will select the entire team. If we only have one Senior Baseball team, every player on that team will be on the All Star Team. If more than one team, the managers along with the Player Agent and President will determine how many players will make up the team. Each manager will be allowed to provide stats and information regarding players from his team he wants to make the All Star team to the other managers. Once this is done each manager will be allowed to vote for up to 13 players from the division, excluding the players from his team. The Player Agent or delegate running the draft will tally the votes, and the players with the highest votes will make the all star team. In the event of ties after the first round of voting we will do another round of voting with only those players tied being eligible to receive votes.

b) Senior Softball team: Shall be selected by the same procedure as above except that only Senior Softball players are eligible and only Senior Softball managers may vote.

c) Junior Baseball team: Shall be selected by the same procedure as above except that only Junior players are eligible and only Junior managers may vote.

d) Junior Softball Team: Shall be selected by the same procedure as above except that only Junior players are eligible and only Junior managers may vote.

e) Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Team: Shall be selected by the same procedure as above except that only Intermediate players are eligible and only intermediate managers may vote.

f) 10-12 year old Baseball team: Shall be selected by the same procedure as above except that only 10-12 year old Major players are eligible and only Major managers may vote.

g) 9-11 year old Baseball team: Shall be selected by the same procedure as above except that only 9-11 year olds from Majors and AAA are eligible and only Major managers may vote.

h) 9-11 year old Futures Baseball team: Shall be selected by the same procedure as above except that only 9-11 year olds from Majors and AAA are eligible and only Major managers may vote.

i) 10-12 year old Softball team: Shall be selected by the same procedure as above except that only 10-12 year old Major players are eligible and only Major managers may vote.

k) 8-10 year old Baseball team: Shall be selected by same procedure as above except that only 8-10 year olds are eligible and only managers from the AAA & Major Divisions may vote.

n) The Softball All-Star Teams: The draft order for the softball All Star teams will be decided by the Vice President, Director of Softball and Player Agent for Softball before the draft.

Section 5. Only the President, Player Agents, Director of Baseball/Softball, Vice Presidents and appropriate managers shall be present during any balloting of All Star teams. Managers may send an assistant coach in their place if they are unable to be present. Only one manager or coach from each regular season team may be present at the draft.

Section 6. Disciplinary action taken toward any manager, coach or player at any time during the season may result in forfeiture of All Star privileges.

Section 7. Names of All Star selectee’s will be kept confidential until the posted District 4 release date. Managers who release a selectee's name prior to the release date will be suspended from further league activity.

Section 8. All managers must submit a list of players they want to nominate for All Stars to the Player Agent no later than the last regular season game of the current year. There are no exceptions to this deadline, so the Player Agent can verify the eligibility of each player nominated. Managers may nominate as many players of any age as he/she so chooses from their respective team.

Section 9. Each Manager will be eligible to nominate 1 player from another team in their division that they feel is All-Star worthy if that player’s Manager did not nominate them for All-Star consideration. Managers will not use this process to nominate a player that should not be an All-Star player and if such a player is chosen and every other Manager in the division objects to the choice, the player is then not eligible to be voted on.

Section 10 – All star coaches will be appointed and approved by President and/or eBoard.
