Playing 2 age groups
Just wondering how many guys have played in 2 different age groups in the same year and at the same tournaments......Pros and cons......thinking of trying it.

I have played in two different age groups and know of several others that do. The main problem is when both have the same game times or the fields are a great distance apart.
You must decide which is your number one team and play with them first.

I've done played in two age groups the past two seasons. Bruce is correct.The only issue is your first team commitment and timing.

Gary, I played 60 and 55 AAA my first year of turning 60. Had a good time but it was hard on the body. I would pick the 55 team when there was a conflict but when there was not it was a lot of games over the weekend. I did that for two years a little less in the second year. Had friends on both teams and enjoyed that part but it does take a toll on you. Thanks Harry

I've played 60M and 50AAA in the same tournament a few times. First time I tried it, I played 10 games in 3 days - that's a lot for someone who was 63 at the time! At least I played 1B for the youngsters but still played OF for the 60s. Had to change unis more than once on the fly. Something I will not do much of, if at all, in the 65s.

I play with 60 and 65 major Scrap Iron teams in Colorado which works very well with SS USA. The 65s play during the week and 60s on the weekend. I like to play a lot so this works for me. I turned 65 last year and started playing both age divisions and will be doing so again in 2011. The biggest issue for me besides the additional expense is being away from home for a week at a time since my wife doesn't travel with me very much.
