Discussion: Changes to the HR Rule - needs more thought

I agree.....most of the discussion on this board is about classification. Teams should be able to classify themselves, but by allowing 3 HR's, then one-up in AAA, you are allowing Major (and Major +) teams/players to compete in this classification with no consequences (other than a walk) for a HR. I know many would argue that a HR should never be penalized, but if we are to maintain some sort of equality in the classes, then at some point, in AA and AAA, HR's after a certain limit should be an out, if not an inning-ending out.
This will certainly make our AAA re-think playing SSUSA.

Discussion: What Define a Major Plus Player, a Major Player and a AAA player and Who rates Them

Why should you have to classify players?
Players should have the right to play wherever they choose. What should be done is classify teams wherever they choose. To me, a simple solution to all of the ratings hoopla would be to allow teams to play wherever they choose based on the following standards and also narrowing the divisions to 3 and the age brackets by 10-year increments instead of 5:

AA (or call it what you want) - 1 HR, then inning ending out. 5-run/inning - 60 minutes + 1 inning

AAA - 3 HR, then outs (not inning ending) 5-run (or 7-run)/inning - 65 minutes + 1 inning

Major - 7 HR, then single - unlimited runs - unlimited time

By increasing the age increments, you should have more teams participating. Play wherever you feel you can play within those guidelines.
