Players selected for the International Tournaments are nominated by their peers. Prior to the end of the season, all managers in MKP, Minors, and Majors will have their players nominate teammates for consideration for the International Tournament. The managers will then forward the nominations to the MLLB Board no later than May 25, 2018. Nominated players will be notified and will prepare for the International Tournament Tryout.
The International Tournament Tryout will be held on June 2nd, weather permitting.
During the tryout, players will run a series of drills and will be evaluated by both the MLLB Board of Directors and tournament managers. At the conclusion of the tryouts the players will be dismissed and the managers will make their selections, with the Little League Tournament managers picking first followed by the 9-10-11 managers who are followed by the 8-9-10 managers.
Selected players will be notified on June 3rd. Tournament managers will be responsible for contacting their players and scheduling practices leading up to the District level of the tournament, currently projected to start around June 18, 2018.
