Evergreen Park Illinois Sports
Evergreen Park is located at 41 - 719933 (87 - 702499) and is surrounded by the City of Chicago and its surrounding suburbs. Beverly is to the east, Chicago Ashburn to the north, Beverly and Mount Greenwood to the south. Known as one of the most popular parks in the state of Illinois and a major tourist destination, Ever Green Park has a population of about 2.5 million people and an average annual income of over $50,000.
Evergreen Park is moderately Democratic, with John Kerry narrowly beating George W. Bush in the 2004 presidential election by just over 1,000 votes. The last time Bush lost to Al Gore by more than 2.5 million votes was in 2000, when he lost to Gore's 3.2 million by about 1.4 million votes.
The only two teams in the EPGSL to lose were the teams that finished 1-2 in each region: Killer B, a 10U black team, and Killer A, which does not make them a "B team" at this stage. With their 10u black teams they were successful in all their tournaments, including the Championship and the Niles Star tournament.
They represented Illinois at the US Open in New York City for the first time in its history as state champions.
The EPGSL finished third overall in the Central Region and dropped out of the tournament after a 3-2 loss to an Iowa team in the Regional. The 16U team, which actually consisted of 14U and 16U players, finished the pool game for the state on the 2nd place, but had to accept the only defeat in both the tournament and the state championship game. They hit back with seven wins in a row, including two defeats to a Forest team in a carnage before the Championship fixtures, to win it all. On that day, the girls put their defeats behind them and took control by beating very difficult Tri-County teams in their first two games before winning their last game of the tournament, a 2-0 win over a very good Tri-County team.
Team 8U Black 12U did not win a tournament championship, but they gave everything and gave everything. The regional winners will move into the national championship game, which can be seen on ESPN. Evergreen Park High School is currently hosting tryouts for the 2016 EPGSL national championship.
You must immediately pay a fee to the manager if you accept to be in the team: $125.00. The IN-HOUSE tournament is controlled by the local league, and the International State Tournament by your local district administrator. Little League International covers the travel and accommodation expenses for all teams advancing in the World Series. In-house tournaments cost $125, but in-house tournaments are controlled by local leagues.
Players and their parents must commit to officially forming the team before the tournament. Any player who participates in the Travel Ball at any time during the All-Stars will not be considered for a tournament team and the sole decision of the In-Tournament Manager will be his. To be accepted, players must be added to the official team roster at least two weeks before the World Series.
If the board is interested in assembling a competitive team, an 11U district team can be assembled. If the league selects the 11u, the district team can compete against all Illinois teams for the 12U Little League State Championship and the 13U World Series. Managers do not want full commitment to a tournament unless the team has participated in state or international tournaments.
Players in the 6th league who have played Jr. Petite or are in the 1st class are also eligible for the 8U-Team. The team will consist of 10 U's from the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th divisions as well as the 7th and 8th divisions of the league. This 8u team will consist of players from Jr., Petites and Petite Division playing in the divisions Jr.-Petite and Petit Div, in addition to the 6U Team.
The board would give as many girls as possible the chance to play in the postseason, but we don't want to put together a second team that is not competitive, making it a sad experience for players, coaches and parents. Please note that the 11U team will be decided by the Board after the 1U and 12U district teams have been selected. Stars is different because the EPGSL promotes a level playing field and participation during the regular season.
We understand that not everyone agrees with the All-Star selection, and we will intervene if we think the issue is egregious. We want to remind everyone that it is a privilege to be a star team, not the right of every player. If the board thinks there are enough players to put two competitive teams in any age group, we would vote for two teams to be put up. It's similar to the IN-HOUSE league, but we don't vote on whether or not there is enough talent in the EPGSL.
