70 major+
I have for many years watched and read many different cases about softball players being restricted as to who they choose to play softball with. Almost all the time the answer they are given when they are not allowed to play for the team they requesting is that Senior Softball rates" teams and not players". On many occasion I would wonder why these players would not be allowed to spend a season with their friends and enjoy the game we all love. For 20 years I have played senior softball with the people I considered friends and never worried about a ranking on myself, until now. Last year I was 68 years old and played for a 65 major+ team and also played for a 60 AAA team, no problem. This year I am now 69 and on the roster of a new 70s team that has yet to play a qualifying tournament but has been rated 70s major+. I also intended to play for a 65 AAA team. When my name was submitted to play 65 AAA it was rejected by the powers to be in Sacramento. The merits of my playing at both levels are identical to last years so why the rejection. I was never given any justification from the person who made the decision or even given the courtesy of contacting me or copying me on their rejection. I would like to hear why the rejection and why we as players are not allowed to play with the people we find comfortable playing with.
