Looking to play in Vegas
Unfortunately my team is not able to play in Vegas this year. If anyone in the 50 Major or Major plus needs an outfielder feel free to contact me.

I don't understand Jeff? He is just looking to play. Maybe I can help? Maybe I can help connect him with a team needing an outfielder.
It sure looked like the team we played in the finals last weekend could have used a right center fielder;-)

We are the 50 MTC Plus team.

We have 12 going, and can easily play with just our 12 but, I just thought??? If my team agreed...Alan could share my time.

I think Alan is a valuable asset for senior ball, and if he wants to play, and there is any way I can make it happen/my teammates vote to allow me to do it...I would be all for sharing MY playing time.

We usually play everyone in the 3 seeding games then go to 10 or 11.... Alan was a very good hitter when we were younger/and an even a better person...if he showed he would be about equal to me as a hitter (which shouldn't be to hard for him) we could share my place spot in the lineup in the double elim.

I believe Alan is East of the MS and therefore ineligible to play on a Major+ team West of MS.

Thanks Mike. I don't know much about the rules... Then again...some say that last sentence should have stopped after...I don't know much.
Good seeing you last weekend.

After further review...it appears that ssusa has a rule about players being taken from the eastern half or western half of the country. In order for me to be able to play I would need to play for a team east of the Mississippi as I live in Florida.
So....if you are a Major or Major Plus team EAST of the Mississippi and need a good hitting outfielder for Vegas give me a call at 561-718-7504.

I'm surprised he didn't send ya a note right after you posted the thread.
Lots of teams have 'last minute wants' for one reason or another after the teams are posted.
Hepe ya find a team.

Thanks Taits. So far everyone that has called me I cannot play for because of residency and team ratings.

I'm here to tell ya folks, Alan is one of the Most Talented Players in the Country! As a Former Teammate, I Guarantee you will not be Disappointed! Alan, if it wasn't for the Mississippi, you would already have been a member of the Arizona Elite. Looking forward to seeing you in Vegas ! ! !

I never thought it would be so hard to play softball.it appears that I can play for a NC team but not a bordering state or a Florida , Alabama, or Georgia team in the Major division or any team east of the Mississippi if they are major plus. That's of course if the wind speed is below 17, the barometric pressure is falling, and humidity is under 80% and its at least a 3/4 moon.

If you look at the rules and the teams going to Vegas, I think there is less than 10 teams I would qualify to play for. I think only 3 or 4 m+ teams and maybe 2 major teams and that's it.

True, some are always shorted. Reno, Vegas and Phx are the most populated. St G is another GREAT event. Plan ahead for next year.
If it's been like most in the past you can do Vegas, Mesquite and St. G in a row, then about a week or so later hit Phx.
