Amidst the excitement and anticipation, some children and parents will be disappointed about not being selected to an All-Star team. In sports, as in life, sometimes things don’t work out the way we hoped. Even worse, we may think the playing field was unfair; emotions get the better of us, and we react in ways we wish we could take back.
Please take a look at the process by which teams are selected according to the CRLL by-laws (below).
What does CRLL do to make things as fair as possible?
Your CRLL Board of Directors makes great effort to ensure there is a level playing field when selecting All-Star teams; one where all players have a fair chance of being considered. The full process is detailed in our League By-Laws and in our Frequently Asked Questions.
In summary, managers and coaches discuss at length players’ performance, versatility, sportsmanship, and attitude. After discussing the players, only the manager and one official coach from each team rank their top 20 players from the division. This ensures equal representation by each team in the vote. Ballots are analyzed to help ensure that voters do not artificially inflate or deflate a player’s ranking. If this occurs, that person’s vote (or entire ballot) is discarded.
The top 10 players in each age group are assigned to a Baseball or Softball All-Star team (i.e., Junior, 10-12/Major, 9-11, 8-10). The manager for each All-Star team then has discretion to select 1 to 4 more players, but must select from the next 5 available ranked players from their age group.
Please note: If your child is selected to an All Stars team, there are several “must have” documents that need to be turned in very quickly to prove age and residence within our league boundaries. For more info, click on I love paperwork.
Let's have a great Summer!
It is our hope that these efforts reassure everyone that CRLL approaches the All-Star selection process in a fair manner that has our children’s best interest in mind. We firmly believe that this helps us uphold and model our core principles: Character, Responsibility, Leadership, and Loyalty.
It is an honor to be selected as an All-Star. With that honor comes the responsibility of representing your league, yourself, and your family with class.
Good luck to all of our post-season teams, and thank you everyone for your continued support of the children in our community.
