The 17th Annual Texas Legends Major is this coming weekend at the Softball World in Euless, Texas just outside of Dallas.  It features 31 teams from 12 different states with 18 teams from the Nationwide Conference USSSA.  There will be 5 Major teams, 4 'AA' teams, 6 'A' teams, 8 'B' teams, 7 'C' teams, and 1 'D' team.  

#1 seeded SmashItSports/Albicocco/Miken/Worth will be heavily favored as they have only lost 1 game all year on softball sized fields.  And because the teams voted a few years back to seed Conference events based on the current years Conference points the other 4 Major teams are all in the lower half of the bracket and SIS/Albicocco is the lone Major team in the top half of the bracket.  This should make for some great early round matchups in this tournament.  There are severe storms in the forecast so everyones patience will be tested as it seems rain has followed the Conference around the country for the past month.

I will have all 4 fields livestreaming at USSSALive.com and the SoftballCenter.com Chat Room will be open from Friday through Sunday to discuss the tournament.

Note: my flight doesn't land until 5:42 Central time so for me to get to the fields and set up the livestream by 7 PM will be highly unlikely.  I hope to be up and running by 8 PM Central time.

If any umpires or CATCHERS read this preview, please give a score to the ipad camera on your field when possible.  THANKS SO MUCH!!!  Remember there are sponsors, players wives-girl friends-families that want to know the score.  These livestreams get 5,000 to 17,000 unique visitors per day.

Home run fences on all 4 fields in Euless are around 300 down the lines and 310 to center field and they will use the Dudley ZN Classic M ball.

As always get your picks in for the weekly pickem game

 


 

DW's pickem picks for the week are 1) SIS/Albicocco  2) Newbreed  3) Racks  4) SIS Thunder 5) Xtreme  5) Nightmare

Racks who were a 'AA' team last year won the 2016 Texas Legends tournament and upset Resmondo and Backman to pull it off.  The tournament this year should have some great potential early round matchups like a battle of top 'A' teams Bay Area Legends vs home state Steel Sports at 11 AM on Saturday morning.  Newbreed and the newly formed Major team SIS/Thunder could meet at noon on Saturday.  The winner of that could get Racks, Dan Smith, and then SIS/Albicocco if they kept winning.

There should be lots of great Major vs Major matchups and upsets throughout the weekend as long as mother nature holds back.  Expect shortened games in the loser's bracket at some point due to rain and bring extra socks and shoes…
