That is a very good point pizza boy. But senior softball is way more talented than I ever imagined. I really respect these guys that play so hard and can still hit bombs and hit 700 or better. Wow, if u have below average players, you will be lucky to win 1 game. If I had a team that was good enough to play major, I would play it. You are only as good as your weakest link. Kudos to all senior players everywhere. I LOVE the game. Thanks pizza boy for giving me a chance to share my thoughts.

Just kidding with you 33 about too many good players.There's a very thin line between AAA and Major usually it's a couple of players that make the difference either way.Good luck in Myrtle.

I play now for an AA team With 2 r 3 players we would b competing with all AAA teams. And i think the difference between AAA and major teams might b even less. There r so few AA teams itís tough on recruiting canít pick up from lower divisions and limited to upper divisions. Not complaining thatís just the way it is Canít wait to start playing again

Nails I totally disagree with you. The difference between the two is large. First major teams are allowed 6 homeruns, thats 3 more than AAA. second a lot of those teams have issue keeping it in the park , while AAA teams have troubles hitting 3. Second major teams are allowed 3 major plus player drop downs, AAA are not allowed any. Third look at the average scores at the major levels its above 20 to 23 runs per game, AAA teams struggle to score that many. Major teams when playing in same age brackets as AAA give up runs or extra player and for the most part (good teams) normally beat team easily.

P.S. you may say you may have a home run hitter in your team that can hit it out a will, then I say that guy should be playing in the major division.

Just my 2 cents.

Hey benji, my opinion of a good player would be a 2-3 hitter, a infielder that could field 3-4 balls and has enough arm to throw the batter out. A outfielder that could make the routine play and hit the cutoff man. And a player that is mentally smart, doesn't hit 3-0 counts, etc. That's what I call a Good player. Just my opinion.

Clever conversation guys. I occasionally play tournaments with a guy who regularly hits 2 or 3 homers in a tournament, plays any position except pitcher, has a willing good attitude, runs fast, lots of stamina in hot weather, but in our age bracket (oldest guys) has a weak arm, unreliable glove, foolish baserunner, swings hard at 3-0 counts, and is still considered a "good" player, worthy of picking up for an important tournament (and drives our manager crazy with his unpredictable performance).

I play 65M and in my opinion we only have 4 good players on our team.In reality these are the only guys above average that we have.Very few teams have all good players on them.
