Tournaments for AA/AAA and Senior Equipment
I've tried to post earlier and it did not show up on the board.
This is a trial run..

Well, it worked that time. Don't know why it didn't before.
I'll make it shorter than my last post that was dropped.
AA/AAA teams should play as 1 division and play under the one-up HR rule (then an out). You can keep going one-up, but if you go 2-up, it's an out, as are all subsequent HR's until the other team catches up. That way stronger AAA's playing AA teams may be limited to 1 HR (and outs after that), if the other team hits none. Let the Majors and Major+ play under their current rules.

While I'm at it, what's with SENIOR bats? Why are we special? Why can't we play with the same stix as the young bucks (ASA,or whatever association approved).

This post is not as eloquent as the one that was dropped, but you can catch my sentiment and hopefully put in your 2 cents, as I have.

I like that better than 1 HR per game. Can't see punnishing a player for a good shot. Especially good idea when a team plays a higher ranked team.

Dale the reason we have Senior bats is because of the UII. With the UII legal no other bat that is legal in any other association is as good so if a bat company wants to sell bats to senior they have to create a bat that won't pass all the other associations standards but will compare to the UII. The only reason I can see that a bat company will make a bat for seniors is because they see how many UII bats the seniors go through in a year because of the durability issues. Seniors are the only reason that Miken makes the UII.
