Rumors from the Chat Room 10/11/2018:

The big rumor of the day is…Monsta has rescinded their ban on players playing usssa. So Monsta players are now allowed to play USSSA.

You never actually know for sure until a player turns in a utrip contract or signs the online roster.

Lots of Myrtle Beach rumors as a possible conference event.  They cannot release schedule til they have all contracts with parks signed.

There will be a new rule for AA.  9 roster points max but for the season you can only have 11 points.
Meaning if you have 9 and drop a 1.25 and pick up a 1.25 you still have 9 points but for the year you have 10.25 so you only have 0.75 left to swap out for the year.

AA is 9, A is 3.5, B is 1.5

Hearing Thunder team will be AA?

MAJ/Sonny’s Merger is the rumor. Some MAJ/Tunie Bedlam/and a few others.

2 teams from the Carolina's 1 A and 1 B are forming…from what i hear everyone else staying at home for the elite series if they have it again.

I've heard Ike, Sanders, Paddock with Titan probably more just not sure

I heard Lex and Sammy are trying to put something together out of AZ with Sonny/MAJ

Masur coming out of retirement to play with Premire and his brother

Marshburn is a guy who got missed on the watch list..

Kendrick is not managing anyone

Baker to Newbreed, nice rumor
Rumor: Baker with Demarini
Bryson Baker is not on the Newbreed team.

Heard some sort of LineDrive/Rebel Sports team

Helmer said at the major that Salas opened a business maybe plumbing and can't travel.

Lee Powers also has a few business taking up a lot of his time

Baugh combined with OI.  A mixture of the 2017 and 2018 Baugh ford teams for 2019
