55 Major Plus
Softball4b

any more teams for our sheet? Kittrell are you playing major or major plus. Anyone from Schones know their schedule yet? My friends from Master Collision what are you playing? Just asking because we may have to revise our tourney schedule.

Thanks guys Butch

Don,
Please do not take this wrong but if you are allowed to do that then I would say I have a real complaint.

I was told last year and this I could not play Major at the 50+ level because I played Major plus in SPA in 2007. Now remember I am someone who is turing 60 this year with two knee replacements and I do not think I am a Major Plus impact player at the 50 age level or any age level anymore. Yet because of that 2007 tournament I am told I cannot play below Major Plus, I am an impact player ( I have only played two tournaments since that 2007 tournament) and in 2007 the one player was in affect that year.

So I guess my questions would be why am I being told I am an impact player still? Why is a whole team allowed to play Major after they have played Major Plus in SPA and in the same age group? Is the one player you pick up for SPA now an impact player? I could go on but I think I made my point. Once again I have nothing a against your team doing it I just think the rules should be the same for everyone. If your team can do this then I should be able to do it.

This is one of the reason I have not renewed my card as of yet. Why spend the $50 when I am never allowed to play?

Bob, I wish I was kidding but I am not. It happened again last year and I will bet money that once my name shows up on a roster (if it does) it will happen again this year. Somethings never change.
