Looking to play with 50 Major team in Phoenix
Have recently parted ways with previous team and would like to play with another 50 Major team in the World Championships in Phoenix , 10/21 - 10/23. Play outfield with speed and good arm. If I can help, contact me at:

Don't you have to play in a qualifier with a team to play in the world tournament? If not, what is the since of having qualifiers throughout the season? Just play recreational tournaments, they cost a lot less.

You might better start checking rosters when you get there with all of these guys wanting to play with new teams.

There will be ABSOLUTELY NO 'free-agent' roster additions on-site at the World Championships. Any and all manager requests for roster modifications/additions must be approved through the SSUSA offices after meeting very specific (and restrictive) criteria.

Easy fellas. I posted this for an ex-teammate because he was having technical difficulties with the site. He was fully prepared to go through the approval process should any team contact him, so I take offense to the insinuation (turn2) of any wrongdoing . Without getting into details, the bottom line is he expected to be going with his old team, isn't, and wants to play.

I am pretty sure Roy Halladay was expecting to be in the World Series with the Phillies, and most likely wants to play. That doesn't mean he gets to go now with whatever team he can sign up with.

Got that right Jack! We play by the rules and we're protected by the rules. When one of 22 teams in our division requests adding a player for Worlds, and based on the criteria the request is denied, 21 teams are protected, and in a sense, rewarded for following those same rules.

An unofficial free-agent "tip": If a team heading to worlds loses a player or two and drops below 12, they can add a "free agent" that plays in the same classification and age group, and is otherwise eligible (not currently rostered, state/bordering-state) to get back to 12. Beyond 12 only a player in the same or lower class AND the next older age group, and otherwise eligible, can be added. These apply to Western, Eastern and Worlds, at least, and these are the circumstances where a "free-agent" post could allow an orphan to find a team to play for. Managers often plan ahead for injuries, etc. but are often blind-sided by the unexpected player availability issue. We often learn these rules the hard way.
