2017 Cajun Classic Bracket and Teams Link

 

The Cajun Classic Major will be played this weekend with 33 teams taking to the fields on Friday night starting at 7:00 PM eastern time.  The favorites are Baugh Ford from Georgia and Steel from Texas.  They will try to avoid upset from the many quality 'B' and 'C' teams in this event and a very good 'B' team out of Florida called One Payment.  A year ago this tournament was full of D and E teams.  This year there has been a big bump in B and C teams which is great to see.

There are points on the line as 5 Conference teams means 165 + (5 x3) = 180 points.  Steel could lock themselves into the World Series.  Baugh Ford could solidify a top 12.

The director is going to try to put up one livestream camera, please be patient.

Shea Nations picks

This weekend the Cajun Classic major will take place in Lafayette, LA with all the major teams taking the weekend off. While only 5 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams will be in attendance with 3 A, 2 B and 28 local teams looking to win.  The favorite #1 overall seed and newly assembled Fence Brokers/Worth will looking to build chemistry headed to A Worlds.  The other teams looking to upset the favorite are: Steel Sports/Powerhousesportz/Miken; Baugh Ford/Adiktiv/Miken/Worth and local South Texas team BTX/Dirty Vegas Sports.

Predictions:  The final 4 undefeated should be: Fence Brokers versus Steel Sports and Baugh Ford versus BTX.  I predict Baugh Ford to beat BTX and the winner of FBI/Steel in the undefeated game. 

My sleeper pick has to be Empire/OA Labs/Gaubert Oil because they have the power to compete at the conference level.

It will be exciting tournament to watch in anticipation of which teams will get upset because I have heard a few teams have had to make several pickups in order to have enough players to field a team.

I will be at the tournament this weekend in the ASP Nation trailer. Please stop by for a chance to win the New Worth ASP Legit Limited Edition Bat for $5 per raffle ticket. 2nd Prize will win a New Worth Legit Limited Hat.
