Where do live, what position do you play and what experience do you have?
We have been playing 50 but want to move up to 55+. We are based on west side but have 4 players from the east side of Detroit.

neck, I don't doubt these guys are very good, but there are only two registered 55+ teams in Michigan, so that statement is not saying much.

Hey Neck

Yes, Eddie Karras plays on our team. He is just turning 55 this year. Still hits it a long way. Bobby Stew does not play anymore, he does alot of umping. I dont think Eddie Collins plays anymore either. I have played against Bruce Gomez (he goes about 3 bills now) in a Ford League.
The name of our team (for now, it is going to change) is Mike Valerio or Pinnacle.
We will be having a team meeting real soon!

There's another Curtis Williams in Pensacola, probably 58 or 59. He played for Dan Smith or Resmondo, not sure. I don't think that he's played senior ball.

Hey neck10. This is Eddie Karas and I played with you on Ricky's team. Eddie Collins hasn't been playin because he is so busy with working. Bobby Stewart has some health issues and is mostly umpiring. I did play with Billy Lambert and he has not played in a while, Don Tillery sadly died a couple years ago in a motorcycle accident. I started playing senior ball with Geckle Builder's my first year and had a ball. We could really hit. Then the rules changed with hr's becoming outs after the limit was reached and the team tried to go into better defense and less dh's. I was expendable, I hooked up with valerio's the last two years with Michigan Vet. This year I am not sure where I am playing.

neck 10, I played with Bob Geckle two years ago on the Geckle Builders team. They asked about Billy Selon but I don't think he wants to play anymore. What team are you playing on this year and what age/classification? I remember playing against that Lansing Glass team when I played on Southwestern Industries.
