Southeast Portland Little League

Selection of Teams and Players

 

Selection of Teams:

 

There is a considerable overlap of ages for players in the Minor and Major Divisions. Players League Age 9, 10, and 11 are eligible for more than one All Star team. Players will be considered for all teams for which they are eligible. Teams will be selected as follows:

 

First, SEPLL will select players for the 10-12 team among all eligible players. The goal is to select the most competitive team possible among all eligible players. Second, players will be selected for the 9-11 team. The goal is to select the most competitive team among all players not selected for the 10-12 teams. Third, players will be selected for the 8-10 team.

 

Note that players who play only Intermediate (50/70) Baseball are only eligible for the 50/70 team, even if they are League Age 11 or 12.

 

Selection of Players:

 

SEPLL selects players for All Stars by a vote of the team managers, team coaches, and volunteer umpires based on their playing ability and availability.

 

Ability: A player’s ability is determined solely by the individuals making the team selections, including team managers, team coaches, and volunteer umpires.

Availability: A player must be available for all practices and games. Families must plan vacations and other commitments accordingly.

 

Alternates: Players not selected for an All Star or Honors team may be placed in a pool to fill a vacancy if one arises and the Board of Directors decides to fill it.

 

Announcement: The Board of Directors must approve the final team rosters. Little League prohibits the release of names of the players selected before June 1.
