Can the president of your league coach Majors All Stars team?

Yes, if approved by the District Administrator.
Tournament Rule on Managers and Coaches (page 121 in 2017 BB Rulebook).

That said, what one DA may approve another may not.

My DA will only approve a league President as an All Star manager/coach if every Regular Season manager/coach in that division signs an affidavit saying they do not want to manage/coach the team.
This has been discussed at our District President's meetings so all the Presidents know about it.
It is "in line" of what Williamsport used to require.

Good to know that is a hard rule to get a specific answer for. Thank you

LL still requires every regular season manager/ coach to sign off for the Player Agent to manager/ coach an All Star team (it's a pain, I still need 2 signatures). They changed the President rule to DA approval a bunch of years ago, but I like that your DA still keeps the old system in place.

If you actually looked at the rule book and the rule changes... it is pretty easy to find this year 

 

Seems to be a lot of people on here in the last two weeks that can't find a rule book or lost their reading glasses....

begs another questions, I wonder exactly how much revenue LL generates by not making complete rulebooks available online, and selling them?

 

considering they give out lots for free every year to leagues.  I have never had to buy one, not even this year when I was only an AC (when I asked if we had any left, league pres said there was a boxfull in the closet of the clubhouse, I took three, gave one to ump who does a lot of our softball games).

 

if they are available online, everyone has access.  probably could do an mobile app version as well.

Your charter fees include one per team. Some leagues don't give rulebooks to their younger level teams (T-Ball, Rookies, Farm, etc.) so there are usually a lot extra. A good president orders some extra ones because you can never have too many.
