View Full Version : 27-and-under club

A buddy mailed up to me a nice insert from the Yuma newspaper that had some Scorpions information. My question is this,

The 27-and-under club article says that there are no longer rookie, experienced and veteran classifications. But on the 2nd page, where it has the players, I see several that are older than 27. Calderon is 30, Merricks is 28, Matos is 32 and some of the pitchers are 28 or their age is not given.

Were these players signed BEFORE the age thing went into effect. The players playing now that are older than 27, will they not be allowed to play next season?

The rule as stated on the GBL website is as follows:

3. Players that are 29 or older on January 1st of 2007 are eligible to play in the GBL only if they have had AA, AAA, Major League or top level international experience.

So it looks like just no Rookies under 29

I think he meant over 29; If you show up at 29 or over, you need to have AA or higher playing experience.
