snowbird rules
Can u explain if a player in on a team from May thru Nov and then heads to California and plays on a team there in Dec Jan Feb and March, what team can he then play on the rest of 2015? Does he need to be released from his orginal team to play on the California team or does he need to get released from the California team to play on his orginial team? I think I am confused. No, I know I am. HELP me George.

The player's "home state" is the state of his primary residence (generally the state that appears in the address section on page one of his Federal Income Tax Return) ... The "snowbird state" is the second state ... The player may play for any team (for which he is otherwise eligible) in his home state OR any bordering state to the home state ... He may also play on a team in the snowbird state, but NOT for any teams that border the snowbird state ... The player does NOT need a release from either team to play in the home state (or bordering state) AND the snowbird state in any season ... However, the player may NOT play for both teams in the Eastern or Western Nationals, the World Masters Championships or the Tournament of Champions ... He must declare which team he will stick with if he is qualified for any of those events on two separate teams ... See Rulebook 14.1(2) on page 63 for complete information ...
