2016 ASA Super National tournament preview!

 

 

 

ASA Super National Championship

 

September 29-30

 

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

 

ASA Hall of Fame Complex

 

brought to you by:

The ASA Super Nationals start at 2:30 PM CENTRAL time on Thursday, September 29th in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma at the ASA Hall of Fame Stadium aka OGE Energy Field and field #4 aka Integris field.  All games will be livestreamed and there are 8 teams participating as Swiing Kiingz just dropped out.  The fences on the two fields used for the super are pretty much 300 feet with the Integris left field at just 285 with a high wall.  The tournament gets started with great matchups pretty much every single game.

At 2:30 PM Thursday WC Monsta with the Granados brothers, some of the OC Swats players, and the Monsta Long Haul Bombers take on OC an Iowa 'B' team that always enters the big events in OKC.  Also Team Combat fresh off their 4th place at the Major take on O&S Cattle last years ASA Super winner featuring 9 Resmondo players plus Orlando Castillo from Backman.  At 4:00 PM Thursday we get to see the other 4 teams as H. Auto fresh off their Major victory takes on Powerhouse Sportz which is the Racks team from USSSA.  And the final first round game is perennial ASA power T's 13 with Demars, Schulte, and Laski vs TG/Reds Astros with Jason Matusik.

It is always an interesting tournament with the mix of players and teams coming together for this one event.  One of these years a regular team like a Combat, Reds, or T's 13 will break through and beat the Super teams.  It will be hard not to pick O&S to repeat but this tournament appears wide open and I will refrain from picking as I root for the underdogs!  🙂   H. Auto seems healthy and Baker, Wegman, and Helmer can get on a roll in ASA and put up some big numbers.

The weather looks really good and the teams get 16 Home Runs so the games could go very long unless run rules are met.   

 

TIMES on the Bracket are CENTRAL!
