The 15th Annual Texas Legends Major is this coming weekend at the Softball World in Euless, Texas just outside of Dallas.  It features 25 teams from 8 different states, with 11 of them being from the Nationwide Conference USSSA league.  There will be 2 Major teams, 2 'A' teams, 5 'B' teams, 13 'C' teams, and 3 'D' teams.  

Resmondo Specialty Tank Worth and Backman/Shoppe/Louisville Slugger will be the two heavy favorites with upstart VCH/Worth who has half of their players from the Texas region trying to pull off the upset and a very good CA Sports/Buzini team also with an outside chance.  The one 'X' factor is the rain.  It has rained heavily in the Dallas area for two weeks now and more rain is in the forecast for this weekend.

I (DW) will not be in Euless, I have the weekend off due to family events.  If they are able to livestream the tournament it will be at USSSALive.com's livestream like normal.

Any umpires that read this, please give a score to the ipod camera on your field when possible.  THANKS SO MUCH!!!

Last weekend in Columbus, Ohio the umpires did a great job of giving score updates and the fans at home were showing their appreciation in the chat room.

Home run fences on all 4 fields are around 300 down the lines and 310 to center field.

The SoftballCenter.com Chat Room will be open from Friday through Sunday to discuss.

 

 


 

The Anonymous Picker is back: 
(I have to keep saying anonymous picker because everyone thinks I am still making the picks.  I am NOT!)

I will keep it short and sweet this week.  I apologize to my fan (you know who you are) for the delay.
Resmondo and Backman should walk to the finals in this one.  I'll take Rezzy to take down Backman, but it's a good opportunity for Backman to get 2 or 3 games against the defending Major champs.  I expect the games to be close because the friendly confines will allow the big hitters on both teams to hit their home runs.  Keeping the ball in the park after the 16 are gone may become an issue, and that can make for some real fun and drama in the later innings.  

VCH is looking to upset the big boys once again, but I'm wondering if the clock is approaching midnight on Cinderella.  I'm not one to go too far out on a limb, but I have VCH outside the top 4 this weekend.  Compound Athletic added some power recently with Conference USSSA veteran Keith Anderson joining the squad.  I think that gets them in the top 5 this weekend along with Peak, FBI, VCH, and CA Sports.
