Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: rule changes

If it were this simple:

- Pitcher has the option to wear protective equipment
- Every ball hit out after maximum is a single
- if you decide to hit the midlle, they'll hit the middle too

The pitcher should "want" to play defense too. If he/she chooses against the "requirement" to play defense then you move to another position.
No, I'm not a pitcher. That is a talent I've not tried to acquire to date. Maybe someday...

A couple of drinks after the game/tournament is one thing. Maybe a drink if there's couple hour delay/wait between games. To arrive intoxicated before a game? What are we, 21 again? To think someone 50 or older lacks self control, respect for his team, his teamates, or his sponsor that he/she arrives intoxicated is just plain stupid.

I'm curious. Have any of your teams played against the younger guys in their leagues/tournaments (USSSA "E", "D")? I've played against it in a couple world qualifying tournments as well as the USSSA "E" worlds. Honestly, guys our age (50) are every bit as good as they are, often times much, much better.

I'm a recent transfer from Ann Arbor, MI to Phoenix, AZ. Would someone help me out by explaining the 50+ skill levels (AA, AAA, Major, Major-Plus)? I played class E @ 2nd base the last few years, our team came in 18th @ the USSSA worlds in Orlando, 2007. I am above average for the "E" level and would be a good "D" player. I won't turn 50 until next month and haven't totally given up on playing with the younger guys as I'm very competitive...just curious as to how competitive the levels are.
Thanks, Brit
