Rookie Tryouts

Each year we select an ‘Allstar Rookie’ team drawn from LASL players who only play in the league and haven't attended The Players Tournament (TPT), or the Advertising World Series before. You don’t have to be brand new to the game, just not a seasoned player who plays outside of the Ad League.

The team of 14 we select is made up of guys and girls playing in the Ad League who we choose from a series of trials. We then coach the new Allstar team, taking them to several UK tournaments before whisking them off to sunny USA for the big one.

The Players Tournament and Advertising World Series is a three day tournament for teams from advertising leagues around North America and Europe, held in a southern US city each October. This year’s location is still to be confirmed. You play 9-10 games across the three days on full sized dedicated baseball diamonds with dirt infields and smooth grassy outfields.

The league will cover the cost of entry to the tournament, while most of those selected get sponsorship from their companies to cover the cost of travel to the event.

Rookie trials for a place on the Allstar team for 2018 are yet to be confirmed.

Check with your Division Head for updates and details:

"Being part of the Allstar Rookie squad is a life changing experience for those lucky enough to be selected. So don't miss your chance and get on down to the trials."

Probably the best week of your life!"
