Discussion: Re-Rated without playing a tournament

I talked to George today and decided to send an appeal form because I did some research and we did play 2013 & 2014 in Major Plus.
Our record against Major Plus teams was 0-7. We played Major teams & AAA teams those 2 years and the games we won were only by 1 - 6 runs per game.
So we did follow the guidelines and we only have 3 Major Plus players on our roster.
I think after they review what I sent them, They will put us where we belong.
Anyone that knows our team can tell you that we are a ggod Major team not a Major Plus team.

SSUSA, I don't want to go back and forth with you, so all I will say is we won't be playing in Ct. Master's because there are no 55 Major Plus teams from her to Florida so there is nobody to play there. Also we don't have a budget of $30,000 to fly all over the country to play 55 Major Plus teams so we can get beat up just so you can re-rate us.
Oh and I won't get into the many teams that have won World Championships at certain Classes, moved up one year and the following year was back in the class they won the year before.
And please don't tell me that they play in against teams in the class they moved up to and didn't fair well.
Last but not least it will be my last post because I really don't want to argue with anyone. I am just not happy the way SSUSA rates teams

Alright, Here we go again. Not that it is going to make a difference, but I have to vent here. I played for Sports Center 50AAA in 2011, we won the worlds in Phoenix, AZ. We then got bumped to Major in 2012. After playing in a few tournaments throughout the year and not doing that well, we went to the Major worlds in Vegas and went 2-0 in pool play and was seeded #1. We went on to win 4 games and finish 4th. Unfortunately we got bumped to Major Plus in 2013, which by no means were we a Plus team.
There were only a couple of 50 Major Plus teams in the East, Brysons & Mid Atlantic. We played them a few times and never beat them, but went on to Vegas that year to the 50 Major Plus Worlds and went 0-4. In 2014 we played a couple of tournies and didn't do that well, so decided not to waste $20,000+ to go get our asses kicked again. In 2015 we split up and played on different 55 Major teams, until this year we diced to put our team back together as a 55 Major Team.
We registered SSUSA, SPA, & ISSA as a 55 Major Team. We played in 1 SPA tournament in Maryland and went to the finals with High St Bucs before it was cancelled because of rain. I look on the SSUSA website and see we are moved to 55 Major Plus.
Now anyone that has played against us as Sports Center or Team Tone knows that we are by no means a Major Plus Team.
I had to cancel my rooms for Vegas that I had already booked for the 55 Major Worlds and unfortunately we will not be playing any SSUSA.

Discussion: SSUSA how can we get reclassed? MTC 50 2014 major Plus

Well, I have been playing senior ball for 9 years and still don't get he classification.
We put a 50 AAA team ( Sports Center )together in 2011 from RI, MA, & NH. That year we won the AAA Worlds in Phoenix, AZ. The following year we wwere bumped to Major, played in 3 or 4 tournaments and didn't do that well,but went to Vegas and had a good weekend going 6-2 losing to ENR, who won it and MTC who finished 3rd.
We got moved to Major plus and went 0-4 at the worlds in 2013. We have broken up our team and most play 55 on different teams because we are all Major Plus players( which we are not) we had 12 guys on our Sports Center team 9 average height 5'9" and weighing 17o lbs. It has been 2 years since we played Plus.
When do we get re-rated so some of our guys can play at the level they can compete?

Discussion: Reclassifying Teams

Well, I don't understand how they moved my Sports Center 50 team from Major to Major Plus. In 2011 we won the AAA Worlds in Phoenix, so we moved to Major last year.
We played 3 tournaments last year, 1 had 2 Major teams and we finished 2nd, another had 3 Major teams and we finished 3rd and then we went to Vegas and had a good weekend and went 6-2 getting beat by MTC by 4 and ENR by 1. Because we had a good weekend we get moved up?
We litterally went from AAA to Major Plus in 2 years OH and our average height and weight is 5'9" 180lbs.
