Looking for a 55+ team

I have played baseball softball both slow pitch and fast pitch in Austin Texas. In slow pitch 15 years ago my team played in major open league.

League team only, tournament team only, both?

What is your best defensive position? Can you run your own bases? Are you there when you say you are going to be there? How long has it been since you have played in a league or as a regular player on a tournament team? What is your height and weight?

If a tournament team is one of your desires, do you have:

1. the money to travel - I will take a rough estimate and say it will cost about $2,000 to play a full annual tournament schedule, maybe more. If you have to pay your fair share of tournament entry fees, definitely more.
2. an understanding wife that will let you travel on weekends to play softball?
3. a job that will not get in the way of weekend travel with the need to be off at least 2 Fridays and at least one Thursday for the big national/world tournaments?
