7 run rule
I agree with DD about 7 runs and 9 home runs when talking
about 70 Major Plus. I play on a 70 Major Plus team and
find SSUSA caught in the past when our players were 50 and 60.
The home run rule is way over blown in the 70's. We have good
hitters and have hit only 7 home runs total in 28 games. Looking
at the other 2 Major Plus teams will show the same kind of
results. Age and the ball contribute to the lack of home runs.
I would like to see the 70 Major Plus go to the "one up rule"
on home runs and enable us to all play Major. Thus giving us an
opportunity to play many different teams.

I believe this would be a great rule change. In major and major plus you are always playing the same teams, especially in the Midwest where very few major or major plus teams are located.

While I can see the merit of your argument and I have alluded to the difference between 50 m+ and 60 m+ on the impact of the HR rule, can you imagine the confusion if you had a different home run rule for every age group in addition to every level? It's bad enough as it is.

IMHO, there should be no limit on homers for 70 and above. Additionally, the boarder state requirement should be eliminated for 70 and above. All the associations should be encouraging the 70 and above to get out and play
