How can a team that finished 28 wins&22 losses,be rated major after finishing 2nd in the Las Vegas tournament of champions Sept-Oct. What kind of board decides this? We had lost to a major team going by another sponsors name to evade the major rating. Is that all a team has to do, find another sponsor and then we are punished by moving up.Do they look only at the team name, and not the players.
Wrong board members, put players in control not CEO's of this organization who are looking to ruin senior softball.

I assume it's the same as our team being moved up without winning anything. Too many players rated Major on the team. Call Sacramento and ask George Moreno how many Major players are on your team. I think 4 or more is a red flag.

If you are a AAA team, you can only have 3 major players on your team.
If you are AA, you can only have 3 AAA players on your team. That's how the system works. They can also move you up based on your play. We are a AA rated team. Three teams we played in the Las Vegas World Masters, Sept.-Oct in our bracket were all moved up to AAA. One team won Vegas of the three. Winning the L-Vegas World Masters is an automatic move up to the next level from what you are playing. Also, I think you meant you finished 2nd in the Las Vegas World Masters, not the Tournament of Champions as indicated. I believe if you are a major rated team, you can only have 3 major + players on your team. If I am wrong about this information, someone correct me.
