2016 USSSA Hall of Fame Dual #2 bracket


It all starts with the Hall of Fame Classic!

The 2016 Nationwide Conference USSSA season kicks into high gear this coming Thursday, April 14th at 8 AM Eastern time with a 33 team double elimination tournament which will end with the championship game being played on Friday night.  All 33 teams are from the Nationwide Conference USSSA series and they come from 20 different states.   If you are doing the math at home thats 150 + (33 x 4) = 282 points to the winner of each event.  All 20 of the top 20 teams in the SoftballCenter Rankings will be there.   After the first tournament ends on Friday night the second one begins bright and early Saturday morning.  A double tournament weekend played at the Osceola County Stadium and surrounding fields that the Houston Astros use for spring training as well as the Fortune Road Softball Complex down the street.   They will play 130 games in all and weather permitting every one of them is a conference team vs conference team matchup.

Resmondo Speciatly Tank Worth has had to pull out of the tournament due to the passing of their longtime manager Frank Webb.

On the homepage we will have a chat room open during the tournament for questions and updates.  The chat room page also has links to the two brackets, links to the livestream page and more.  With the tournament being played at Osceola County Stadium and around the corner at Fortune it will be difficult to keep up with all the games until we get down to 3 fields.

The USSSA livestreams can be found at   They will have multiple cameras on the Stadium field and most other fields will be covered by a single stationary camera most of the weekend.    

NOTE: on Saturday, April 16th there is a Cheerleading competition at the convention center next door to the F1 through F5 fields so the internet may not be able to support a livestream on those fields on that day.  Last year there were 5,000 people at the convention center and the internet was not able to sustain livestreaming while the competition was going on.  However Fortune Road fields should be able to have the livestream going for every game.

The Home Run Derby on Wednesday night at 7 PM will also be streamed on

OldScout Fan Picks!

I will add this section on Wednesday night.

Don't forget to fill out your 'pickem' for both tournaments 



Reminder that all teams need to get their team picture taken by me (DW) at some point during a day game for best results.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. 

USSSA will also be taking headshots of players for the electronic scoreboards used throughout the year.  And finally remember for your stats to count and your players to be eligible for post season awards, you need to send in pictures or scans of each of your score sheets to for placement in a picture album so that anyone can verify they are accurate.  In addition your stat totals spreadsheet goes to and if you can copy me on that as well that would be helpful.  Thanks.

 – Remember that a fielders choice is scored as an out for the batter, not a single.
 – Sacrifice fly's, even game winners, are scored as outs and count as a plate appearance.  No exceptions.
 – All outs in each game must be accounted for and visible on the scoresheets for players to be eligible for conference awards.  If your team bats 6 innings, you must have 18 outs accounted for.  If your team bats 7 innings you must have 21 outs accounted for.
