Looking for a team to play with in world tournaments.
I am looking for a team to play with in any national or world tournaments. I am from Kansas and have played at class C and B mens teams for last several years. I am an infielder and play anywhere, but have always played SS or 3rd. I do play a lot of ball average about 160 games a year. I am currently playing on a C team. I have been playing for a Masters USSSA team from Kansas(besides regular mens and co-ed) and was told we did not have the funds to go to world this year. Our team has won 2 45&over world tournaments one in 2003 and also last year. In 2003 I made the all tournament team and lasts year was the MVP. I am now 51 and would be willing to play 40, 45 or 50 and over. Have only played USSSA and ASA, but willing to play any Ass. My e-mail is Will travel anywhere for right tournament.

Do you live in the KC area? If not, where? What B/C teams have you been playing with the last several years?

Live in Hays Kansas. I have played for Kansas Power for as many years as they had a team and last year for RTS. This year I am playing for KSC.

I know Randy. As a matter of fact, I played with him last year on the Dodge City Bud 45 team. He was the MVP, and HE CAN PLAY. He's a real player and an AWESOME teammate.

Make room for him; you can't go wrong.

Hello Randy

Thanks for the kind words Cognac Lite. I just got back from playing this past weekend in Milwaukee in the USSSA Super Major 50 and over this past weekend with Gekle Builders from Michigan. I was told by the coach that he contacted me because of your post and I greatly appreciate that. Good luck to you and you team for the rest of this summer. Hope we can play together again sometime.
I would like to thank Ray and his team for asking me and taking a chance with me as they had lost their shortstop to injury. They were a great team to play for and I am glad I got the chance to play with them. Hopefully things will work out and I will be able to play with them again.
This was a great tournament as all the teams were very evenly matched. Congratulations to Butch’s Bulldogs/linedrive sportz as they won this tournament. We had a very good game with them in the Semi-finals as they ended up beating us by 1.
I really enjoyed meeting a lot of the senior softball players and visiting with them. It is obvious that it is the love and respect of the game that keeps everyone playing and just makes for a great atmosphere. I am not use to this as you do not find very many like this at the regular men’s level that I always play. I got to visit with several guys from the Randy Smith team, what a great bunch of guys. We had a great game with them also as this one we were able to hold them off.
I found this message board by searching on Google. Not sure who runs this site, but thanks it gives this great senior softball group of guys a way to stay in touch. Living in central Kansas it has given me an opportunity to play in the senior softball and hope it can lead many more opportunities for me.
