KAU Little League Baseball & Softball

All Stars


KAU Little League proudly supports Little League's tournament tradition.  Since 1947, in the summer months Little Leagues around the world select an All-Star team made up of players from its league. These All-Star teams compete in district, state, and regional tournaments, hoping to advance to Williamsport for the Little League World Series.

Each year, KAU Little League charters All-Star teams in multiple divisions depending on numbers for each age group: 8 year old, 9 year old, 10 year old, 11 year old and Majors (12 year old).  Depending on interest and ability, the league typically charters All-Star teams in the Intermediate (50/70), Juniors, and/or Seniors Divisions as well.

All-Star teams are carefully selected and require a significant commitment of time and energy from potential All-Star players and their families. 


The KAU Little League Board has adopted the following procedure for naming its All-Star teams each Spring:

:  These rules are intended to supplement, and not replace, existing Little League rules on player and manager selection.  All existing rules on player eligibility and the timing of player selection shall remain in place, as set forth in the Little League “Green Book.

  1. Each KAU Head Coach shall nominate up to four (4) players from their own team and up to one (1) additional player from each age group from an opposing team (if not nominated by their own manager) to be eligible for selection onto an All-Star team.  This nomination does not guarantee a player onto an All-Star team but makes them eligible to be voted onto the team.
  2. Selection of All-Star players
    1. Up to ten (10) players for each All-Star team shall be selected by the managers of each division through a formal voting process with the balance of the players for each All-Star team selected by the All-Star manager for  that team.  The Board and League president have final say in the selection of players should a situation occur that deems this necessary.
    2. Division and All-Star managers shall consider the following criteria when choosing an All-Star player:
      • Overall ability, in the current and past seasons;
      • Regular season performance;
      • Sportsmanship;
      • Demonstration of a special skill that will assist the performance of the All-Star team in All-Star competition; and
      • Availability for All-Star competition.
    3. The League may, but is not required, to hold one or more player tryouts for individual age groups to decide All-Star team composition.
  3.  Selection of All-Star managers:
    • KAU Coaches and Assistant Coaches are eligible to serve as All-Star managers and must notify the KAU President if they are interested in being an All-Star manager. All-Star managers are chosen at the sole discretion of the League President. 
    • The League President may select All-Star managers at any point during the Spring season [or other appropriate time].
    • The League President shall consider the following criteria when choosing an All-Star manager:
      • Regular season performance;
      • Ability to communicate with players and parents;
      • Ability to develop players at a specific age group;
      • Knowledge of baseball and Little League rules;
      • Sportsmanship; and
      • Cooperation with KAU Little League and its Board of Directors.
    • Selection as an All-Star manager does not assure that manager’s son/daughter of selection to the All-Star team. 


The rules governing All-Star tournament play are different than  those that govern the Little League regular season. Starting 2023, Little League International has changed the mandatory play rules; all teams will follow a continuous batting order with no mandatory defensive play rules. This means every player who is at the start of a game and on the roster will be in the batting lineup for the entire game; however, they will not be required to play defensively in the field. 

KAU Little League requires that any player being considered for selection to one of its All-Star teams understand these rules and agree to refrain from criticizing coaching decisions concerning line-ups or playing time.
