Player Classifications 60major + versus 55 major
I have a question. Can a guy who is playing on a 60 major team, but who is classified as a Major-plus player, play on a 55 Major team, even if that 55 major team already has 3 major+ players? In other words, isn't 60 major+ equivalent to 55 major?

Maint, great question. I can't wait to hear the official word from SSUSA, although IMO they'll say "he's rated Major Plus" and therefore he would become the 4th Major Plus player on a 55 Major team. The team would have to move to Major Plus.

Hey Tony,

No one can ream you for that answer. Take a stand and see what happens. LOL! Have a great day Tony. See you out there in Huntington Beach or Vegas.

Andy Smith,
60 Major,
55 anyone that will take me,
50 if you are desperate,
40 if I can play on a woman's team.

The hypothetical stated does not provide any information on what age group the player has with Major+ experience in his background. However, presuming that experience is with a 60-Major+ team, he would be able to play unrestricted on a 55-Major team. Both 60-Major+ and 55-Major carry a Rating Index of 7 and he may play with the 55-Major team if he is otherwise eligible as to residency. He would NOT be in the three-count of players "out of rating". Hope this helps!
