Discussion: New rule on shaved bats

So, what happens to the players on the team that is no longer allowed to participate? If this is the only team they are rostered on. Can they be picked up by another team? If so does it count against them as their one roster move for that year?

I agree that someone will be angry one way or the other. And I also agree that Timberworks would more then likely beat up on the 65 major division. Not fun for anyone. I am not in Timberworks corner in all of this. If they need to move down an age group then so be it. I don't have a dog in this age group fight. Just trying to start some conversation on how to fix it, so it's not an issue anymore. I may be reading the snowbird rule wrong. The snowbird player has the choise to commit to either his home state team or his snowbird team. So if I live in Michigan and snowbird to California, and choose to stay with the California team. Is that not the same as me being from out of the area? Not being a smart ass, that's just how I read the rule. My point to that was. I, being from Michigan, being on a major roster, with no snowbirds, puts me at large disadvantage playing the major plus teams. My post was a general post trying to cover all teams in the major plus and major divisions. Thanks for listening.

Mr Jobe. First , congratulations to you and Timberworks for being able to maintain a very good program over the years. Just one comment. Back a couple threads. I mentioned that the m+ teams can grab 4 out of area players and the m teams cannot. I do believe that argument may be over used by teams out west, in the south west and in the south. But In my state and surrounding states where it tends to be in the negative degree range in December, January and February. Players are leaving not coming to, so the snowbird rule doesn't seem to apply. So ultimately, the m teams in my area are limited to who they can roster. My point before was, we just need to do something to close that gap. So that when this type of situation comes up again, the field may be a little more balanced. I realize this does not fix every thing, but maybe it helps ease some of the anger on this board

Discussion: Winners of 65 Majors -Vegas

As not to lose money on non-refundable plane tickets, hotel rooms and tournament fees. With the major + teams able to roster 4 out of area players,. Do we allow the major teams to roster 2 out of area players? To try and avoid the issue that came up in Vegas this weekend. You allow the major + team to bring their complete roster. When playing the major teams, 2 of their out of area players can not play that game. I think that may level the playing a little bit when it comes to this situation. Just a thought.
