USA player rating rules does have a bylaw. Scripted as such. IF a player does not have an USA player rating, that player CAN be rated on that players playing history in another national organization at that rating or higher. The operative word is CAN, not WILL. Until USA changes that one word to WILL, this is what will continue to happen. USA Softball is cannibalizing its own upper divisions by allowing this to all happen. C teams that get bumped usually just break up because they know what they're up against with having to play teams littered with AA, A and Major players that have no USA rating that are on teams that also have their allowed 3 A USA rated players. A or B will never grow until these teams are made to play where they belong. Not crying about this. Stating facts. Of the 5 C teams that were bumped from last yr, only 3 went and competed, Shenanigans, Dirt Dogs and BOT all went and played. No Dynasty and no Product. If USA changes that one word to WILL, it would fix all problems. Utrip now has player ratings attached to each player, so very easy to look up. More players that go to just a single tournament with it just being nationals for USA. Very few USA teams that just go to a utrip Worlds If they only play USA. USA allows it with one word.
