Call for 2019 Kearny Mesa Little League All-Star Participation

Kearny Mesa Little League is at the mid-point of the baseball regular season and we would like to field team(s) for the upcoming 2019 All-Star Tournament. Our goal is to provide as many of our players and our league the opportunity to experience the most widely known youth tournament in the world.

The Little League International Tournament is widely known by what you may have seen on ESPN as the Little League World Series each August at Williamsport, PA. Before these teams reach Williamsport, they have to grind through various stages that start at the District Level. The District winner then advance to play in Sectional/State tournament. If successful would then continue on to the West Regional before reaching the Little League World Series.

It is a great honor to be picked to play on one of these All-Star teams. However, there is also a substantial time commitment and effort required to participate. Once the teams are put together, the manager of the team is fully in charge. They will make all the decisions on how their team is run and the amount of playing time that each player will receive. If they feel at any point the players and/or parents cannot fulfill their commitment, the manager has the right to dismiss that player and replace them. All tournament locations have not been determined and once the dates and locations have been finalized, the full schedule will be distributed to the league and posted on our website.

The District 33 All-Star Tournament is tentatively scheduled to start June 20. Team practice will begin after player selection are announced June 1 and after completion or elimination from the District 33 Tournament of Champions that begin June 3. Historically the All-Star tournament is double-elimination, but competition at this level is very high, with most league's season ending in June.

If selected to a KMLL All-Star team, there will be NO additional cost to joining the team. A maroon KMLL baseball cap and loaner All-Star jersey top will be provided. Maroon socks and belt will need to purchased. Commemorative T-shirts, picture package and programs will be available for purchase.

Little League All-Star Divisions
KMLL will field tournament team(s) this summer in one or more divisions. Please note all tournament teams are based upon the League age of the player and not what division they played in for spring baseball. Meaning, if a child is league age 10 years old and played in the Majors division he/she is still eligible to play on a 8-9-10 tournament team. However, a player cannot be considered for a Tournament Team, unless the Tournament Participation Eligibility Form is completed, signed and returned to the league by May 4, 2019. 

Players will only be chosen from those who returned the Tournament intent letter by the due date. The board and team managers will choose the players who will, in their opinion, create the best teams possible to represent KMLL. The manager of the tournament team(s) will be chosen by the league President.
