Games Hosted by Westwood

We are hosting the Major Baseball (7/5-7/13) and two games of Little Major Softball (7/11-12) tournaments.  There is plenty of All Star action over the next few weeks. We need your help while we host All Stars! We are in need of volunteers to keep the official scorebook, to announce the batters and lineup changes during the game, to work concessions, and to help setup and clean up each day. There are two games each day on July 5-9 and July 11-12. All require arrival between 5:00 and 5:30 PM with games at 6:00, except July 9 when arrival will be between 9:00 and 9:30 AM and games at 10:00. You can add your name to our sign up list and you'll receive a reminder 2 days before your slot. We appreciate your help to make this as special as possible for our All Stars and our visitors from the other leagues. Let us know if you have any questions about any of the roles.

Schedules and Results for Westwood All Star Teams

District 2 tournament schedules and results for all divisions are available through the D2 website.  Look for the 2022 SB All-Star Bracket and 2022 BB All-Star Bracket links.

We'll post results and updates on our Facebook page.

All Stars

Following the regular season, every division above Tee Ball has a chance to form a team to represent the league in a tournament. This is commonly referred to as All Stars. Divisions from Little Majors and up play in a double-elimination bracket against other leagues in District 2. (NB: Minors do not have a tournament scheduled in 2022.)  Minors typically play in a tournament hosted by District 15 and that tournament generally begins at almost the same time as the end of the regular season and runs approximately 10 days.

This information is from Little League Michigan District 2, who organizes and sponsors the tournaments.

All Stars is the tournament season that follows the regular season.  In each age division, each league selects their best players to form a team to compete against the other leagues for the District Championship for that age division.  The District Champion will then advance to the State Tournament for that age division.  For the age division of 10-12 (Majors) and up, the winner of the State Tournament then advances to a Regional Tournament.  Winners of a Regional Tournament would then advance to the World Series for that age Division.

If your player is selected to be on the All Star team, it is expected that practices will start in mid June and most tournament games will be in July.  Your player’s presence will be required.  If your team continues to win, your player may need to continue to play into August.

As you plan your family’s summer events, please be aware of the Little League All Star schedule.  It is a great opportunity for your player to play All Stars.  The time to play All Stars is limited so keep in mind there will be plenty of other times in your life for vacations.

Below is a time line of age divisions.  These are only estimated dates.  Final dates can’t be set till mid-June when the district has a final count of the number of teams participating and knows umpire availability.

NOTE: These dates are for 2022 and all are approximate (not specific) at this time; "may start" means it might and it might not; "week of" means any time in that 7-day period.
