USSSA State tourneys is where it happens the most...seen it before...twice. "Oh, we didn't know, blah, blah, blah". Then the kids cry and all the parents get angry. Terrible scene. Very sad. Glad USSSA has been taking steps to clean it up for a few years now. They still have some work to do, so I'm encouraging them to finish the drill.
Pretty dumb to be entering a tournament where other teams from the same area are also playing, if you're using overage kids. You think someone on the other squads doesn't know if one of your players will be a HS freshman next fall?
