In preparation for the selection of players for LP's teams which will participate in the District 27 All-Star Tournaments, all 9 - 12 year-old players are invited to attend the all-star evaluations. Players will be notified of the evaluation times and dates by their managers. Whenever possible, the times and dates will also be posted on this website. Understand that attendance at the evaluations is not a prerequisite to making the All Star team nor does your participation guarantee you making a team. However, if your child cannot attend the clinics and would like to be considered, kindly notify your manager. It should also be noted that participation in any other baseball program (i.e. AAU) has NO bearing on the selection of the Lower Perk teams. The All Star teams will be selected by a vote of the current division managers. 

As you consider your child's participation in this process, the league respectfully request that you consider the following:

The league will ask for a commitment from you and your child. Practices will begin around June 15th and the game schedules could take us through the end of July. Careful consideration should be given to this commitment, since there will be 3 to 5 practices per week until the game schedule begins. Once games begin, dates and times will be dictated by whether the team wins or loses. Failure to attend any combination of 3 games or mandatory practices could mean removal from the team. Also, understand that there are minimum playing requirements at these levels. The manager is not obligated to play your son/daughter for any more that the minimum requirements. Also, please note, once play begins for an LPLL tournament team, players may not participate in any other youth baseball or softball program (AAU, CP, ARA, SF, etc.) until their team is eliminated from the Little League tournament. 

Games could be played at any of the surrounding District 27 complexes, including Lower Perk, Berwyn/Paoli, Devon-Strafford, Pottsgrove, Pottstown, Coventry, Upper Providence, Lower Merion, Exton, Great Valley, and Chester Valley. Any team that should win the District 27 tournament will play in the Sectional Tournament at a site to be named later. 

Please direct all questions concerning these evaluations to [email protected] 

 

Introduction to All Stars and Tournament Play

Traditionally, Lower Perk has entered teams into a number of Little League sanctioned tournaments. A tournament is typically held for each age group above 9 years old. The tournaments in which Lower Perk typically participates in are:

BASEBALL

The International Tournament: This tournament culminates in the Little League World Series in Williamsport. The team selected represents the best of Lower Perk. Traditionally this team is comprised of primarily 12 year olds.

The 11 Year Old International Tournament: This is an International tournament. LPLL will send its "11 Year Old" team to this tournament.

The Kline Tournament: This is a District-wide tournament. LPLL will send a "12 Year Old" team (which may also include 11 year olds).

The Al Patton Tournament: This is a State-wide tournament. Traditionally this team is comprised of 10 year olds.

The 9 Year Old All Star Invitational: This is a District-wide tournament. LPLL typically sends a single team at this age level.

The Major League Team Tournament (formerly the "Bob Jones Major League Team Tournament"): This is a District wide tournament. Traditionally, the first and second place teams of the Major Leagues are sent to this tournament (as the playoff schedules allow).


SOFTBALL

The International Tournament: This tournament culminates in the Little League World Series in Williamsport. The team selected represents the best of Lower Perk. Traditionally this team is comprised of primarily 12 year olds.

The 11 Year Old International Tournament: This is an International tournament. If player numbers are sufficient to have an International Team and an 11 year-old team, LPLL will send an “11 Year Old” team to this tournament.

The 9-10 Year Old State Tournament: This is a State-wide tournament. Traditionally this team is comprised of 10 year olds.

In-House All Stars

In addition to tournament teams, two in-house All Star teams are selected at each playing level from the National League East through the American League. These intramural teams at each level compete in a best of three game series.

Player Selection - Each regular season manager shall select players to participate on the in-house all star team. The number of players to be selected shall be determined by the player agent. Players selected to participate on tournament teams may not be selected for an in-house all star team. Players "playing down" for any reason are not eligible for selection to participate on an in-house all star team.

Manager Selection - Regular season managers and coaches volunteer to fulfill these roles during the in-house all star tournaments. In the event that there is more than one candidate for a given position, the selection shall be made by the player agent.
