It's not that long ago, but the 50 and 55 sure seem younger now, dont they? :-)

Aren't you glad all we have to do is show up and play ball?

It is not the division/age group my team plays in. Perhaps, the proper combining of teams above the 50M and 55M would be to combine only the 50M+ and 55M+ as one division, and leave the rest alone. That way the YOUNG GUNS can play the game their way and everyone else is happy as is.
Just a thought

Ray,
Thanks for the backup. Sometimes even I don't understand what I'm saying :)

Not a problem. Even if there was an edit feature, it is not a substitute for making yourself clear. Playing straight-up is the best way to measure your progress anyway. Bob, I hope to see you this next year at some tournaments. Our team is doing some healing over the next couple months. A side note, I think we played your team this past summer in Pinetop. I think you guys were playing short handed.

BW, we played AAA this year. We are moving to 60M next year. I think you misunderstood. I only sugested the adnl fielder (not runs also) to equalize the divisions if the M+ teams have no one to play. I don't care who we play. I enjoy the competition. We have enjoyed playing some M and M+ teams this past year. Even tho they kicked our butt a couple times. Combining the divisions might give the M+ teams bigger brackets, but I think there are many M teams that wouldn't look forward to the competition without some sort of equalizer. I look forward to this next season in M. If we are at any of the same Tournaments this year, stop by and introduce yourself

I'm looking forward to the tutorial on proper timing of the slow pitch softball swing. Can't wait to be able to hit 1.000 either.

with the runs per inning limit and an 11th fielder, I think most M teams could compete with ANY M+ team

I think the increased defensive improvement of an additional fielder for the lower rated division would be the most effective equalizer. JMO

Discussion: Phoenix 60 major plus

We can only hope to be that good some day. I was not referring to a single combined division. I was talking about 2 separate divisions, with some other teams for the M+ teams to play at the tournaments. As far as Hr's, how many do the M+ teams typically hit per game? I'm sure you underestimate their game. There is a lot more to it than HR's Curveball

Discussion: Phoenix 60 major plus

We (Robson) will be moving to Major next year in 60+. The fact that teams get moved up for being successful in a division shouldn't bother anyone. It is necessary for competitive balance. It is natural to want to improve for anyone that competes. That is what competition is about.
I haven't been playing Sr. ball long. Not like most on this board. When we play seeding games at most tournaments with mixed divisions, they allow 5 run or 11th fielder advantage to the lower division team. JMO, seems like 11th fielder would make most Major teams competitive with Major+.

I just noticed 4 small (1/4 inch) cracks in the yellow paint at the endcap. What did Kevin say about yours? It's too late to get him on the phone here in Az. Has anyone else seen this? I only have about 10 swings on it. Very short BP today (sore finger). Thanks for any feedback.
