The application period for teams to make written requests for adding "Roster Exemption" players for the 2014 Original Tournament of Champions closed on Friday, January 10, 2014 ... The complete rules and procedures "white paper" for TOC roster composition is available from the RULES page of this web site ...

so that means there is no chance for me to play? I am in Fla with my son on his make a wish trip and we extended our stay to try to play these 2 tournaments ..my 4 year old son who was given less then a year to live likes to see his dad play..of course we are trusting in the Lord to override the DRS prognosis and so far so good!

It stinks that you aren't going to get to play in the TOC. Hopefully you and your son will spend many more days together at the ballpark.

May GOD BLESS your family with a miracle.

the answer: We are certainly not prohibiting you from participating in the TOC if you are otherwise eligible to be legally added to a team under the TOC roster composition rules (which are designed to maintain both integrity of rosters and fair competition for all teams). However, it seemed wise to let you know that the number of managers seeking "roster exemption" players after Janmuary 10th has decreased significantly, possibly to zero. If a team is still looking, you have a slim chance, but not simply as a "free agent" seeking to play for anyone.

the answer: Here's an update on your search efforts ... You are not eligible to join Fat Nancy's/Gubiotti for the 2014 TOC because they already have more than 12 players on their roster ... Players #13-15 (the maximum for teams adding "roster exemption players") must come from the next older age group and the same, or lesser, rating level ... You are too young to be a "roster exemption player" in the 55-Major since you will not be 60 until July, 2015 ... With your current age 58 and personal 55-Major team history, the only teams that fit the criteria to potentially add you right now are the two 50-Major+ teams, but only as one of their two allowable out of region roster exceptions ... You do not meet the state residency requirements for any of the six 50-Major teams or the other four 55-Major teams ... Good luck!

the ISSA was a lot more flexible and player friendly with allowing players to play...isn't that what this is supposed to be all about?

Nope ... You are NOT state or bordering state of residence eligible to play for ANY of the 50-AAA or 50-AA teams or ANY of the other (excluding Fat Nancy's/Gubiotti, for which you are underage to be a "roster exemption player") 55+ age teams, regardless of division ... You ARE eligible for 50-Major+, but only if either of those two teams has a remaining out-of-area roster exemption (max. of two) available ...

SSUSA prides itself in maintaining the roster integrity and fairness of competition aspects of the original Tournament of Champions, and requiring that participating teams actually win a qualifying event to be invited ... What others may do to create relaxed rosters and ratings is their business, but does not result in any enticement for us to lessen our standards ...

some people just don't have the time or money to travel around the country trying to win in these tournaments..by the grace of God we were able to come to Florida partly due to our son johns illness and make a wish trip and have extended the trip to make the most of it and to get out of the cold. Just trying to make the most of our trip
.I will not bother you guys anymore God bless
