The 2015 USSSA 'B' World Tournament will be played this coming weekend in Florida at the Fortune Road Softball Complex. The tournament features 30 teams over all about 12 of which have a legitimate chance of winning.  The favored teams are #1 seeded OC Swats Doerflinger/Miken/LCP from southern California and #2 seeded TG Brand from Michigan.  As always when teams play at Fortune Road there are usually 2 to 3 teams no one expects to do well that make it to the Sunday final 4.  B&B Sears was the surprise 2nd place team in 2013, Westshore Pizza and Jolt from Florida made it into the final 4 in 2012, and a non-conference 1st Step/DCS made it to the finals in 2011.   Last year a 'C' team from Georgia called New Era finished 9th.  Tradition shows that teams with twice as many wins in the 'B' division as losses are usually the teams that have a chance to win.  Those teams this year would be OC Swats, Encompass, Pure Romance, and Broughton.  It is interesting though that all of the 'B' teams in the 'B' Worlds this year have pretty good winning percentages in the division.

Can OC Swats "travel"?  Can TG Brand play on Sundays?  Who will wilt in the heat?  Will power or defense win?

I will send my picks into the pickem but won't post them here as teams don't like that.

– Fortune Road Softball Complex features 4 fields with 310-325-325-325-310 foot homerun fences.
– Infields are slightly small in size forcing infielders that play deep to have to contend with the lip of the grass/dirt on grounders.
– The Dudley Classic M ZN ball doesn't normally carry well during the heat of the day at Fortune Road.
– The USSSA 'B' division plays with a 6 HR limit

    I would not count out 2 or 3 of these local C teams this weekend especially Reebok and HB Sports.. Beckham Brothers has some veteran conference experience too with Malloy and Langford.

  2. Softball Fan says:

    Watch for RDD to be surprise team of tournament winning thwireless first two games. Lot of vets on the team. Believe they have 3 or former Checking players including the pitcher Mike Verbasco.
