Topic: Players looking to join a team
Discussion: Available for Western Nationals

I'm on a 65AAA and 70MAJ roster, but neither of my teams are going to St. George, so i'm looking to join a team that needs an outfielder. I could also play 2nd or 1st if needed. Prefer outfield. Lot of speed. Can run from myself and CR for anyone that needs it.

Thx Capt. but my major team is already playing in the Huntsman games. I looking to play in Rogers, AR in July or Mesquite/St George in Aug. I know your team and have played with several of your players in Washington tournaments. Good guys..I'd like to play with you sometime. I'm willing to travel when you're short a player.

Yuma positives have tripled over the last TWO weeks. From 20 to 60. Yuma population 100K. Total cases fewer than 800.

NO ONE wants to play in Yuma? I think we can make up our own minds on that Gretchen. BTW in 2017 it was 113 in Sacto. Teams showed up.

If its true Cali is closed another couple of months+, maybe we should move Senior Softball HQ's to a state that actually has softball. Might even save some money.

Right on OZ. It's amazing to me that so many Americans relinquish their freedoms.

What's the over/under on how many lives the Government, medical, and media will claim they saved? They'll pat themselves on the back and grab some number out of their a--.

So what if 30+ million people are out of work

So what if "a few" businesses are gone forever.

So what if the economy tanks.

So what if they trampled the Constitution.

On a personal note. If you are over 70 like I am, calculate what percentage of your remaining life expectancy was stolen from you.

FLATTEN THE CURVE! FLATTEN THE CURVE!

Well...Mission accomplished. What's our next hurdle?

TESTING! TESTING!

Are the results going to dictate when we can get back to life? What are the parameters? What does isolation mean for the ones that test positive? Reopen Manzanar?

Why are the shutdown rules the same for Lone Pine and San Francisco, Detroit and the UP?

After TESTING! TESTING! What does the nanny state have in mind?

I'm in my 70's, just as soon not spend what time I have left huddling on the couch.

Dbax. You are correct. This is no swine flu. Swine flu killed 12400 Americans.

Dave. You forgot to answer the question. Did the SSUSA (or any of the other organizations listed) cancel events for the Swine flu (or Ebola or SARS) for people over 65?

When I drive to a tournament, the only other passenger is a 70 year old woman in good health except for a mean streak. We stay in "clean" places and eat in "clean" places. We look out for ourselves.

The 70's team play on (until my manager sees this) has a rule about not greeting each other with a kiss on the lips. Fist/elbow bumps.

NYC limits groups to 500. Softball limits are 22 plus umpires.

I will refrain from personal attacks.

I'm pissed off. I looked up the statistics of the swine flu in 2010. Up to 575000 infected, 12400 deaths in the US. Did the SSUSA cancel tournaments then? If not, what's different? I'm 72 years old and should have the FREEDOM to choose if I want to attend an event. The SSUSA is taking that choice away. Lack of trust in your customer? Not enough attendance to be profitable? Law suits? If its the health and welfare of the players, let them decide.
No MLB,NHL,NCAA etc. The're all doing this for you. Did they cancel for the Swine flu?
OK. I'm ready to be chastised by group.

Just found out my 70 major team will not be playing in mesquite. Looking for a team to play on in this tournament. I'm an outfielder but can play 1st or 2nd base or catch of course. I can run for myself and anyone else (fastest 70 yr old you know). I'm on a 70s major and 65aaa roster so I'll need USSA permission to play. I live in Phoenix.
