Summer baseball participation
Players are nominated to participate in Summer baseball by the coaching staff of each team in Majors, AAA and Minors divisions
Nominated players will display a high level of baseball talent, however these players ALSO must display sportsmanship and leadership, as they are representing WHLL when playing other towns. So both talent AND attitude are considered when making nominations
Eligibility: ONLY players who participated in the Spring season are eligible for summer baseball. For those players who have other activities ongoing that limit their participation for their spring season team (e.g. other sports leagues or activities outside of WHLL), that player must participate in at least 60% of their team’s games during the Spring season to be eligible for summer participation.
Selection process & team formation: Selection to 12u and 11u All-Star teams is based on coach and player voting. Selection to 8u-10u All-Star and Travel teams is based on a Summer baseball tryout.
