Four softball players participated in the inaugural AIGA Softball U14 All Star Game. The process started with AIGA wanting to host the first softball all-star game consisting of Polynesian players.

They went through different cities looking for talent. Fortunately, they were able to contact Island Built Softball Girls Fast pitch Program in Northern California.

Tryouts started and players were selected from Southern and Northern California. The end result was an All-Star Games for three divisions 12U, 14U, and 16U-18U combined. The players were hosted to a banquet and received a valuable recruiting workshop.
