Discussion: RANKING THE MEN IN THE 40S

I dont think anyone ever considers themselves a senior, but it does give the 40s a place to play with out all the %$#^ talking and also eliminates the dirty bats, keeps everyone on a more even playing field as far as equipment goes, nothing worse then playing in a backyarder and a 150 pound kid comes up to bat with a new shiny bat a proceeds to blast a ball through the middle at mach speed.

The 40 program needs to have a rankings system, how can teams that have mostly E and D ranked Utrip players compete with teams that have A, B and even Major ranked players? Senior softball should look at the buildup of the rosters and do a quick search of players and rank them accordingly off of other associations. Not just assume that all new players are ranked as a mojor player.

Discussion: 40 and Over Program

Im just throwing out ideas, the 40 program is going to grow, I see and hear of more and more teams forming, SSUSA is going to have to start paying attention and things need to be in place so they dont get out of control. If you have the funding to pay for players to fly you should play at a higher level. AAA should be for more of the rec teams, AAA should be for teams that would qualify as an E or D team in Utrip or NSA, Major should be for C and B caliber teams and major plus should be for A and higher caliber teams. Didnt the two AAA teams in Phoenix have players that played at B and above in USSSA this year? Didnt 1 team show up with players from a very competetive major Team? Did these players play any events throughout the year with thier team? just thoughts that were throwing out there, according to the current rules I can have a team full of USSSA major players and still play in the major division, does that seem like fair competition? Like I have said these are just my opinions.

I'm not saying you have to stay with those twenty guys but put a limit on moves, at least you can control some of the moves and make the players all qualify for worlds, also keeping players from one single state will help financially strapped teams compete, in the AAA program you had some teams with plYers from several states playing, at least it will keep teams in lower division competitive, Let's say a team from California is flying players out from Washington and Florida then they should have the money to compete in the upper division, like I said it is only my opinion.

Discussion: 40 and Over Program

With the ever growing 40 and over program SSUSA staff is going to have to start paying a lot more attention, It would be great if they had a commitee or a group to review the 40 rosters and used other associations ranking for the 40 program. There should be no B and below players playing in the AAA level, if a major team has more then 3 major players from another associations list they should play MAjor +, this would help grow the upper and also help the AAA stay competetive. I dont think the new rule of all new players automatically being put a major tag is fair either, I think all teams should turn in a 20 person roster at the begiining of the year and all rosters are approved at that time. Also they may want to start looking at making the lower 40 teams all be from the same state, this will allow most teams to be competetive throughout the year. just my two cents.
