All Star Policy


Winston Baseball

All-Star Player and Coach Selection Process



1.      Any Coach, who nominates a player from their regular season team, must first discuss with the player’s parents their desire to nominate the          player.  The Coach should explain what All-Stars entails, (ex: approximate cost, the length of the All-Star season, etc.)

2.      A Coach must nominate a minimum of four (4) players in each age group from their team, if there are enough age appropriate players on                the team.  (Ex. 4- 7 year olds and 4- 8 year olds)

3.      A Coach cannot vote for players from his/her regular season team.

4.      A Coach must vote for seven (7) players from each age group.

5.      After all Coaches have voted, the ballots will be counted by members of the Winston Baseball Board of Directors.

6.      The top 7 players with the most votes will be locked in to the first All-Star team.  There can be more players locked in due to ties in votes. 

7.      Players, who are locked in on the first All-Star team and turn it down, will not be considered for the second All-Star team if there is a second            All-Star team.

8.      The remaining roster spots will be filled through an Open Tryout, evaluated by the first team All-Star Head Coach and Assistant Coaches of             his/her choosing.  If there is a second All-Star team, the Head Coach and Assistant Coaches of his/her choosing will also attend the Open               Tryout and evaluate the players.  The date, time and place for the Open Tryout will be determined by the Board of Directors. 

9.      Once the Open Tryout for All-Stars is complete, the Head Coach for the first All-Star team must submit their completed roster to the Board of            Directors the same day.  If there is a second All-Star team, the Head Coach has 48 hours to complete the All-Star team roster and submit it               to the Board of Directors.

10.   The Head Coach for each All-Star team will be responsible for contacting the player’s parents and notifying them their child has made the All-          Star team.   

11.   In some divisions, the age groups may be combined to form the second All-Star team. If there is an age combined All-Star team, the All-Star           team must play in the higher age group. (Example: combined 7 year olds and 8 year olds, must play in 8U age group)

Head Coach Selection Process

1.    All-Star Head Coaches will come from a list of interested parties who submitted their names to the Board of Directors.  Any regular season               coach, Head or Assistant, can submit their names for consideration. 

2.    The Board of Directors will meet, discuss and vote on the Head Coaches for each All-Star team.  The Board of Directors will make the                      selection based on several different factors to include, but not limited to, the interested parties’ ability as a coach, any complaints or praises            received during the regular season, previous All-Star coaching experience and their ability to represent Winston Baseball with the highest              regard and utmost sportsmanship both on the baseball field and off. 

3.    Each All-Star team will consist of the Head Coach and three (3) Assistant Coaches per Dizzy Dean Common Rule 19:03.    


All-Star teams may start practicing on scheduled days after the End of Season Tournament.  The practices will be scheduled through the same manner as the regular season.  Coaches should send their practice requests to the scheduler so they can be placed on the Winston Baseball website calendar.

-       Colors are Red, White, Navy Blue and Gray

All cash is to be turned in to the Treasurer. Attach the original and one copy of all checks to be turned in for deposit. Write your All-Star team name on each check to ensure proper credit of your team funds.  If this procedure is not followed, the monies or checks will not be accepted.
