Confused about players joining teams for the Worlds
I'm confused. I thought that a player(s) must play in a "Qualifier" tournament to "qualify" on a team in order to be eligible to play on that team in the Vegas Worlds? I see on various posts, players and teams, looking to fill rosters for the Worlds. Am I wrong on this point?

They are supposed to qualify with a team.

If teams are short handed, they are able to pick players up. How would you like to be on a team that has lost a few players to injuries & not be able to go to the Worlds, because you were short, lets say a pitcher? There is provisions to pick up player/players to bring your team to a certain level. I believe it is 12 or thirteen. The intent is to not load up a team, but just take a reasonable amount of players, as opposed to dropping out of the tournament.

Without looking up the rules and assuming nothing has been changed from the past regarding adding players for the Worlds, the magic number is 12. I think your roster has to fall below 12, then you can add players from the same level of play or lower. BUT, the player being added must be from an older age group. For example, if you are a 50 Major team, you can add a 55 Major player with the approval of SSUSA, not another 50 Major player. It is in the rule book for you to look up, or you can call up to George at SSUSA for clarification.

mad dog's got it right. The "roster considerations" are
out there for all of us to read and understand, but if
you don't managage a team and you've never found your
team in this situation, of course why would you know
this. I've been close to this situation a few times and
had those conversations with SSUSA, until I was able to
clearly understand what's allowed. And of course each
case may be different and SSUSA always has some
discretion. If you want to add in a questionable
situation, they'll always let you enter, maybe at the
next higher class!

What I read in the rules on this subject is that no matter where they (players) are drawn from by rule it was to be done in writing no later than 30 days prior to the tourney. Isn't it too late?
