Players whom apply and do not agree to play after team selection must be approved to play in subsequent years by writing to the JBBA Board with explanation. League Director’s compose a list of all players who apply and submit this list with evaluation criteria to each manager of the league. Managers, prior to player selection, have the opportunity to evaluate all players who have applied for the team through regular season games, past AB/All-Star experience, and scheduled practices. Both previous all star players and newly interested players are equally evaluated during these events. There will be no try-out scheduled for the All-Star selection process. Players are evaluated on all skills including, but not limited to, catching, throwing, running, pitching (if applicable), hitting, coachability, attitude, and sportsmanship. Parents are also evaluated based on the parent code of conduct as the team extends beyond the players themselves. League Managers convene and together select players for all stars. Leagues with an opportunity for A and B teams will have players slotted accordingly. Knowledge of the player’s rankings will be determined by ballot and be known only to the League Director or assisting Board Member until the appropriate time to announce. “A” All-Star teams will be rostered with the top eight (8) vote getters. Upon manager selection he/she will be allowed to look at the remaining applicants and choose no less than four (4) additional players. Roster size will be no less than 12 players. Upon these selections the players will be notified of their selection. Should any player not choose to play, the A manager will again fill his/her roster from the remaining applicants. Any applicant selected to participate in the All-Star program will be required to pay a $250.00 registration fee. Registration fee is due at first practice prior to uniform order being placed.
