At the conclusion of each spring season, baseball teams representing ANSLL compete in post-season tournaments. Little League sponsors a tournament series for four different age groups and our local district (District 10) sponsors two additional tournaments. The table below summarizes eligibility requirements for each team and the expected tournament dates. (Each individual tournament will take place over a roughly 10-day span, and winners will advance to the next tournament, if applicable.)  The age ranges are set by Little League and District 10, not by ANSLL, and are based on a player’s age on 8/31/22.

Operation of the annual tournaments in Little League come under a different authority and jurisdiction from that normally observed during the playing season.  A very important difference that parents, guardians, and players should understand before asking to be considered for team selection concerns MANDATORY PLAY (Tournament Rule 9) and SUBSTITUTIONS/RE-ENTRY (Tournament Rule 10).  These rules are spelled-out on Pages 190-196 of the Little League Baseball 2022 Rulebook.  The big take-aways are that there is no “continuous batting order” in tournament games, so only the nine players who take the field for defense in an inning are eligible to bat; and the minimum per-game participation requirements for each player are less than for ANSLL regular season games.  The following two websites provide some helpful summaries of the MANDATORY PLAY rule for Little League tournaments:

Each spring, the ANSLL Board of Directors forms a Tournament Committee to oversee the selection of managers and players for these teams.  This process begins with the collection of commitments for all eligible players (based on age, division, residency, etc.).  Parents or guardians are asked to complete a commitment form to indicate whether or not they want their child/children to be considered to represent ANSLL on a tournament team.  Consent for tournament team consideration requires a commitment by parents/guardians to make a player available for practices and games any day and at any time of day from the end of school through the end of the last tournament in which a tournament team could compete.  Parents and guardians must disclose to the Tournament Committee all days/times of day between 6/1/22 and 8/31/22 when their child will be unavailable for baseball practices and games.  (Examples of conflicts to disclose include summer school, day camp, overnight camp, swim team, vacations, and any days/times when no adult will be available to transport a player to/from a practice or game due to work or other commitments.) 

The Tournament Committee will create ballots for each team that include all eligible players whose parents/guardians have consented for them to be considered.  Regular season managers will vote on these ballots, with each manager voting for up to ten players for a given team.  The Tournament Committee will count the managers' votes and assign to each team the ten players receiving the most votes.  Then, the manager selected for each tournament team will select additional players, up to a 14-player maximum limit. Tournament team rosters will be announced on this web page on 6/1/22 (date tentative), and teams will begin practicing soon thereafter.

Any questions about tournament teams should be directed to the 2022 ANSLL Tournament Committee members listed below:
