2011 Kansas City Tournament Preview

Kansas City

Tournament Preview

There are 29 teams entered in the Conference USSSA tournament in Kansas City called the "Mike Turney Memorial".   13 are Conference teams

1 – Major
5 – 'A' Teams
6 – 'B' Teams
13- 'C' Teams
4 – 'D' Teams

Resmondo has clear sailing to the finals as they have a 49-2 record over 'B' teams the last 4 years and all that is in the bottom of the bracket are 'B' teams.

The top half of the bracket however looks more like the 'A' Worlds after the first round with Darkside, 454, FBI, R&M(TCP), Sinister, and EWS.  The question is, does EWS have the team chemistry to put things together this weekend?  They have a 3-6 record against upper level teams this year. 

I'll take Darkside over FBI in the top quarter of the bracket.   FBI has a completely new roster but I think they have enough to get by 454 early in the season here.   In the second final 4 part of the bracket I'll take R&M over EWS.   In the bottom half there are some great 'B' matchups and B/C matchups.   I'll take T's 13 over DMC if they can both make it past their first games.   I'll take Midwest Swing over T's to make the final 4.   In the bottom half I'll take Magic over RFC and Resmondo over Magic.  RFC is playing close to home so that Magic game should be a good one.

In the final 4 I'll take Resmondo over R&M in the winner's final and Resmondo over EWS in the championship.

My top 4 for KC then is:
1) Resmondo
2) EWS
3) R&M
4) Darkside

Take it with a grain of salt…

I should have twitter updates and the message board up on the homepage here at softballcenter.com most of Saturday and Sunday.   I won't get to the fields until late on Friday night though.
