Discussion: playing in different age groups

So if I am reading this based under 4.2(6), I'm 55+ Division and my skill level is AAA. I can play on either a 50 AA,50 AAA, 50 Major, or 60 AA,60 AAA, or 60 Major. Two different age groups, same skill level being AAA, lower skill level (AA), or one higher skill level (Major). Does not mention rating.

4.2(5) PLAY IN ONLY ONE AGE RATING DIVISION
A player may not play in more than one rating division in the same age group in World Masters Championships competition (See 4.2(6) for playing in two age divisions). A non-qualified player may attempt to qualify with a team in one division after failing to qualify with a team in the other. But once qualified for either division, he must play in that divisional World Masters Championships
unless the team with which he qualifies disbands under 4.2(4). Penalty for attempting to play in two rating divisions in same age group: see 16.1(5).

4.2(6) PLAYING IN TWO AGE DIVISIONS
A player may play in two age divisions under the following conditions:
A. Player is playing in two separate age divisions. EXAMPLE: One team is in the 55+ division and the other is in the 60+ division; AND
B. A player can only play on a team in the same skill level, or one skill level higher or lower. EXAMPLE: A player on a 55-Major division team cannot play on a 50-AA division team.

4.2(7) MAJOR-PLUS PLAYER RESTRICTION
Major-Plus players may only play on Major-Plus or Major teams. Players who
have no Major or Major-Plus team in their region OR players who are
determined not to be Major-Plus caliber by SSUSA may request an exemption
in writing.

You can play in two different age divisions and one up or one down rating. Example you are a 3A player so you can play for a team in a 60 Major or 60 2A. The only exception is if you are a Major+ you can only play for a Major or Major+ team.

Discussion: Seeding

The seeding format IMO really sucked. What the hell are playing games for when using W-L followed by RA (runs allowed). How do teams that went 0-2 get seeded higher than teams that were 1-1 and 2-0. If anything assign us number, put it on a ping-pong ball throw them in the machine. Just like BINGO!

Follow-up to what I just stated. You are dead on about using that field. Someone hitting a homerun on field 4 with two way traffic hitting a car could cause serious accidents. Just trying to retrieve the ball was causing problems because of the traffic. Heck, LVPD was driving by saw the HR he immediately turned on his lights to stop traffic.

I'm going to have to agree with E4/E6. It does sound like it quote "WHY WOULD YOU PUT THE BEST PLAYERS IN THE 55s & 60S division on the WORST FIELDS in SSUSA WORLD Tourney. Thou he doesn't mention which division but we know he was referring to the Major+ division. There are a lot of players who play for AAA and Major teams that should be playing Major+ but are not and it's because of their preference or because they were not asked to play. Trust me recruiting by Major+ teams or any division go on.
