Discussion: Moving to Major Plus

I've been playing senior softball since 2006 and my first two years I played 50 Major Plus. Currently, I help manage and play on a 50 Major team that we believe could be bumped to Major Plus soon. I am against this move up for at least two reasons. One, there are not enough other teams to play at the Major Plus level. Two, and more importantly, the increased number of home runs allowed at the Major Plus level greatly diminishes the value of defense, the strategic use of home runs and base running. It skews the importance of home runs to the detriment of the other important parts of why we play this great game. In a word, it's "boring" for those of us that can't/don't depend on home runs to pad our offensive stats. If we could move up to Major Plus and use the same rules we use today at the Major level, I would be more in favor of being moved up. I know most won't agree, but that is how I feel and maybe others do as well.
