As far as I know, which may not be much, in order to play 75's you need to turn 75 sometime during that year. Did not see where you could play 75's and only be 74.
Call them up.

As for other read 4.2(5) & (6), but recommend you call them up number is on lower left on screen.
Get it from the horses mouth as it were.

I recall seeing somewhere about a year earlier playing for age group but not sure it was SSUSA. You do not want to get a forfeit for an illegal player. Play it safe, call 'em.

Hi Chuck: Haven't talked with you since THEE BUCKEYE CLASSIC. How are all the GEEZERS doing?

Here is your answer for SPA rules. Your age is determined by birth date in the year starting on January 1 and ending December 31. So if you were born 12/31/39 your age for senior softball this year would be 74.

A 75 team may have FOUR 74's on their roster, so if you are a 74-year young player on a 70 AAA team you may play up on a 75 AAA team, providing they do not have four 74's already on their roster.

A 75+ AAA player may play down on a 70 AAA team.

Hope this answers your question. Hope to see you in JUNE, 2014 in Barberton.

A 75 yr old team can have five 74's on the roster.
