Appleton Little League All-Star District Teams & Appleton Little League All-Star Series Teams
Appleton Little League offers its member players the opportunity to participate in tournaments after the regular season has ended. Teams are formed through a thoughtful process that incorporates voting from the players, coaches and managers. The results of the vote act as a guide for the Appleton Little League Tournament Committee in selecting the 2 All-Star teams at three different age levels. The Tournament Committee is made up of the A.L.L. Board of Directors and other appointed members of our league. There are a total of 16 All-Star Teams that will be formed in the 2015 season with approximately 200 players participating.
6 – District All-Star teams will be formed – 3 for Appleton American & 3 for Appleton National at 11-12, 10-11, & 9-10 age levels.
4 – Appleton All-Star Series teams will be formed – 2 for Appleton American & 2 for Appleton National at age levels TBD.
3 to 4 – Appleton Cup All-Star teams will be formed for 8-9 year-olds who played in the Minor Division during the regular season.
~ The Little League Tournament started in 1947; and in 1956, the Tournament began playing at the District level as more excitement for this tournament grew and spread across the United States. The Little League Tournament today begins at the District level and progresses to State, Regional, and culminates at the International Tournament that we see played in Williamsport, PA on ESPN each summer.
Appleton American and Appleton National Little Leagues participate in Wisconsin’s District 2. In 2016, Kaukauna Youth Baseball Little League has joined D2! Our state is made up of 6 total districts, and there are 6 states that make up the Great Lakes Region. Each year Appleton Little League, Inc. will enter one All-Star team from each of our Leagues (American & National) into the Little League Tournament at 3 age levels (11-12, 10-11, 9-10). Only the 11-12 age level may advance beyond the State level.
