Men's 50
32 posts
After playing this past weekend in the 50+ Major Plus Division, I have one observation. The Major Plus teams in any age group are the best of the best. Of the 32 teams listed in the 50+ age group, only seven teams competed in the Worlds. Both Top Gun and Pilchers were transplants from the Major Division last year. All of the other Major+ teams have long standing tradition in senior softball. As a member of Top Gun, we tried to hold our own, but to no avail. My thought for what it is worth, let the Major+ teams be the best of the best. Open up the boundaries and let teams select players from all over the country. Let them use the Ultra II and play with the hot ball, unlimited home runs, and unlimited runs per inning. That will be the true test to find the best Major+ team in the country. Less than 25% of the total Magor+ teams cometed in the 50+. Maybe realistically there are only a handful of Major+ teams in the country. Let the sponsors put together the best teams that money can buy. For me, I liked the opportunity to play Major+ and see how our team measured up. Reality was that the Major+ teams acrossed the board are better than a transplant Major team. I look forward to 2006 and competing at whatever level our team is rated at. SUMMARY: NO RESTRICTIONS FOR MAJOR+ TEAMS
