Game participation is defined as having played at least six consecutive outs defensively and had at least one at bat during a game.Selection: A total of 12 to 14 players are chosen per team. The All-Star Manager and Coaches will select the players based on their own scouting and reports and recommendations from the player’s ALL team coaches. The D4 teams will be made up of the very best 12-14 players in Majors or AAA in 2019. Whether or not a player is on an Arlington travel team or not is irrelevant and absolutely not one of the criteria the coaches look at to select their teams.

Daily 2-3 hour practices start in early June with tournament play typically running the end of June through mid-July. If All-Stars may be of interest to your player, please keep this time frame in mind when making plans for summer.
