Major Plus
Am I really a Major Plus player or am I a part of a team that happens to play in that division. Now i,m not playing because that division is getting smaller and smaller. I have spent most of my life playing a sport and now you are telling me that because of the business aspect of the game that (Sacrifice a few for the many applys. Cant play AAA. If more than 3 so call Major plus players on a Major team, then that team is not leagal. I understand some of that but, Age takes care of a lot of thing such as declining talent. Just because I played the game at that level for years who is to say I still effect a game in that manner. The long ball has been capped so why not let them play. Get real. We pay top dollar for bats that improve your ability and now that works against you. There are very few A, AA teams in young softball. Where are those players going?

I agree, if a player is 49 or 50 and is playing on a major plus team it does not guaranty that at the age of 55 or 60 he will still have the same physique or ability to play at that level. The player should have a right to appeal that rating he has been given in the past.

My 2 cents worth.

So this is a problem? Really? Trust me, if you are playing Major Plus, it's not a problem.

This initial post is rather dated, but for grayhitter59: cutty is simply a player with Major+ team experience history, which determines his eligibility for playing on lower rated teams ... We do not rate players, only teams ... The restrictions are in place for competitive reasons and to protect the lower rated divisions ...
