Discussion: Is it fair?

Cuerva, I play against those guys all year.... They are that good! I have much respect for everyone on that team. So much respect, that I would never consider those guys Major talent.. They are truly Major plus,even playing almost 2 divisions down! 55 guys don't loose their stroke.. They still mash! yes they loose some on D, but they can intimidate a lower division with how they hit the ball. IMO

SSUSA Staff and when they play these east or west or world masters and laydown and not bring their entire team. They slip thru the cracks into major and then go 8 and 0 and win the majors without a loss. seems Legit ;-)

Mike, took it to BP today, I didn't have a great BP but the first few swings out of the wrapper were as hard as my gamer bats.. I put about 35 swings on it and the last ball I hit went about 360 ft... it looks promising after just 40 swings!

I will be hitting in batting practice today.. I will compare it to the gamer bats I have which are Dudleys.. The Wicked is in the wrapper so I will at least give you a fair shake and only compare to a game ready bat and a in the wrapper bat. I will also say something after 150 swings in a week or so.

If we have divisions to promote good competition and fairness, Why would you allow a loaded team of plus players into a lower division?

This is not a attack on Thunderstruck but it's a reality that has happened to the major division.Hypothetically, My north call warriors Major plus 50 team can bump up to 55s next year and take 6 of our best players, and then take 6 of JUs 55s best players and then pick of three jk inc 50s major plus players and drop into the 50 major division to win a ring. This is what is allowed under current rules...
. Does this seem like fair play?

I have played in both major plus 50s and 55s and the top players in 55s are still top players in 50s plus ball FYI I think the 55 and 50 plus division should be the same player index in order to protect the lower divisions from what just happened! I wonder what everyone else thinks.. Seems to me 3 plus pick ups should be the max even if they are from older divisions!

So next Thunderstruck gets bumped to 50 plus but they decide to leave their 50 guys behind and now go to 55 major plus and pick up a few 55 major plus guys and now decide to play both 55 major plus and 50 major and that's ok?

one question I would have what constitutes a returning team. This team had 6 players from it's 55 major plus championship last year! I thought we were told you wouldn't let what happened two years ago with MTC 55 team playing in a 50 major tourney? what happened to that conversation?

SSUSA with that rational... Tim Middelete would of carried a 50 major plus rating from his MTC 50 second place finish two years ago in 50 majors. his team were all rated major plus 50 or 55s. so technically he is a 50+ player ending this year in Nov

benji, that list is correct...Tim might of fluffed it with all these old farts spin, but yes Becker has a back issue and still hits it 400 feet. Billy is a major plus player even if he has no ranking!

I talk to you on the phone when you where with the infamous Einstein! LOL I didn't mean you were calling me out, I was just letting anyone know I don't need to hide.. Everyone On Thunderstruck will be playing against me in North Cal Senior softball association or with me.. I just for the record IMO think that 55 major plus players should carry the same rating to 50 major plus.. the best 55s are on the 50 plus level! out of respect of what these athletes can do, is why I think it's unfair for them to be able to bounce down to 50 major level. They were a loaded team for 50 major. 6 55 major plus champs, one 50 major champ and two for major plus players.. seems like a bit much for the 50 major division IMO..

Benji, webbie I don't hide behind keyboard.. I know everyone on that team and they know me.. I am Rich Navarro.. I only stated the facts that I know. I just think it's wrong to have Major plus players dropping one age group and division to chase a ring.. hell, it's the major division so you truly are playing for 12th place.. the 50 major plus is the top 12!

what I know for sure, is 6 guys I played in 55s last year won it with MTC and 2 guys were on a 40 team that got bumped to 40 major plus and 1 guy got a medical exempt from 50 major plus. so I understand that 6 guys makes you a returning team and that won 55s last year major plus. I thought the Tim Millete rule was in and no 55 major plus team could drop into the 50 major bracket??

It always amazing that we provide our own balls first of all... secondly, EVERY TEAM KNOWS the balls... Penalty should be forfeit of the game! IMO
