Dual #2 bracket will be out on Tuesday

 

The 2017 Nationwide Conference USSSA season kicks into high gear this coming Thursday, April 20th at 8 AM Eastern time with a 36 team double elimination tournament which will end with the championship game being played on Friday night.  35 of the 36 teams are from the Nationwide Conference USSSA series and they come from 20 different states.   If you are doing the math at home this tournament is worth 150 + (35 x 4) = 290 points to the winner of each event.  All 6 of the Major teams and all 12 of the 'AA' teams will be there.   After the first tournament ends on Friday night the second one begins bright and early Saturday morning.  This is a double tournament weekend played at the Osceola County Stadium and surrounding fields that the Houston Astros use to use for spring training as well as the Fortune Road Softball Complex down the street.   They will play 144 games in all and almost every game will feature a conference team vs a conference team!

On the softballcenter.com homepage we will have a chat room open during the tournament for questions and updates.  The chat room page also has links to the brackets, links to the USSSALive.com 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 USSSALive.com   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 Friday, April 21st at 7 PM there is a boxing match at the convention center next door to the Osceola baseball fields and on Saturday April 22nd a cheerleading competition so with that many people in the area the livestreaming bandwidth on AT&T could suffer.

Games will be streamed on USSSALive.com

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.  

At the managers meeting Wednesday at 6 eastern time USSSA will introduce their new live scoring app called MyBallClub.  All teams are supposed to use this application starting at the Hall of Fame Classic and a demonstration of the app will be done at the managers meeting.

Stats:
 – 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.
