Can they Rename All Stars?

Having been through an number of seasons with Palo Alto Little League I'm impressed with the level of play, and with the hard work and skill of many coaches. However, when it comes time for the post season 'Allstars' games, my heart always sinks when coaches choose their own children to participate, only throwing in another kid or two who might actually be 'stars' in terms of their skill level. When coaches spend the whole season putting their own children in the key play positions in order to increase their statistics, regardless of whether these are the better players, it fools nobody and brings the league down. When they select their own sons for the "All Stars" teams, it makes it a joke, even to the boys. Is no one at the league willing to take this on? Why not reward the coaches by having a post season, "Coach's Sons Derby" and save our League some embarrassment?
