Discussion: Player Changing Teams

I sure do Bruce. We are playing on the same Rec League team this season (the name of the team is The Crush). Both the name and the orange shirts are pretty impressive.:)

He loves in here in Softball Heaven as I know you would too. Nothing like the lack of teams/travel/field location hassles of metro Atlanta. We have two four 300' field complexes just in The Villages. You need to stop by if you go to the Winter Nationals in Ft. Myers in November. We are only about six miles east of I-75.

Discussion: Player Changing Teams

I appreciate all of your inputs regarding a player changing teams. And yes Bruce, it is Dacula, GA. Actually, we've met before either at Tolleson (I played there with the Golden Oldies a few years ago before moving to The Villages, FL)or at a tournament venue, maybe Pensacola. I played and still do play with Truman's Old South team.

Discussion: Player Changing Teams

SS-USA Staff Question: Here is the situation. A new team is forming to move to the next higher age division. However, the new team has not yet registered with the SS-USA and may or may not decide to play in the Winter Nationals in Ft, Myers. If the new team decides not to go the the Winter Nationals, can a player who will be on the new team's roster during the 2010 season play with another team in the Winter National without jeopardizing his eligibility to play for the new team during the 2010 season.

Please address the specific actions that the player/manager(s) must follow so as not to create any non-eligibility issues.

Thank you.

Discussion: hitting the pitcher

I am for protecting the pitcher, but not for changing the game. The middle is part of the field and should not be restricted from batted balls. My position is that the senior organizations, in this age of hot bats, should instead make it mandatory for a pitcher to wear a helmet w/mask. Yes, hits to other parts of the body can also cause serious damage, but the primary critical area is the head/face. I am puzzled why none of the senior organizations has taken the bull by the horns and gone with the mandatory helmet and mask rule. In essence I strongly believe the Field of Dreams popular quote "build it and they will come" applies here. For example, if the SS-USA were to lead the way, I believe SPA and the other national sotball organizations that hold senior tournaments will eventually follow suit. One last point is that I realize many pitchers will balk at being forced to wear a helmet w/mask, but if it is a mandatory requirement, they too will adjust over time and hopefully soon realize that a 50+ person who loves the game is better served by wearing adequate protection when performing his higher risk job.
