Player Agent

What am I supposed to do and when do I do it?


Little league player agent

Player Agent

The player agent conducts annual tryouts, is in charge of player selection, assists the president in checking birth records and eligibility of players and generally supervises and coordinates the transfer of players to or from the Minor Leagues according to provisions of the regulations of Little League Baseball. Separate player agents may also be selected to oversee individual divisions within the league. The player agent must not manage, coach or umpire in the division over which he/she has authority, unless the local league has received explicit written permission to allow this from Little League Baseball International Headquarters.

Pool players

POOL PLAYERS

A pool of players from existing regular season teams can be created with players that are willing to participate in extra games during the regular season when teams are faced with a shortage of rostered players for a regular season game.

  • What does it Mean?

  • Every regular season player is entitled to be a Pool Player if he/she wants

  • Pool players can only be used when a team has a “shortage” of players (if a team already has 10 or 11 players for a game, they shouldn’t be assigned any Pool players).

POOL PLAYERS

Guidelines

The Player Agent will create and run the Pool Player Pool.

The Player Agent will use the pool to assign players on a “rotating basis” to specific games when teams are short players.

Managers/Coaches MAY NOT pick/ choose players from the pool to play for them in any game/games

Managers/Coaches using Pool Players NOT Assigned by the Player Agent will be subject to Disciplinary Action by the BOD

Once Rosters are set and the Season Starts, The Player Agent is Responsible for “Monitoring” the Number of Players on each team and Coordinating Player Replacements (All Player Replacements must be coordinated by the Player Agent – NOT by the Affected Manager)

PLAYER TRANSACTIONS

In General, the Manager will notify the Player Agent of the need for a Replacement Player.
