The Nationwide Conference USSSA has a Major event in Colorado this coming weekend with 25 teams including 7 from the Nationwide Conference USSSA.  The tournament features Newbreed from Washington and 4 'A' teams – Classic Glass from California, Stars from Colorado, Nally's from Missouri, and Aire/SLM from Arizona.  The winner will get 165 + (7 x 3) = 186 Conference points which could move Newbreed up to 7th in the standings, or put Classic Glass into the 16th spot going into Columbus should they win.  The light air and 320 foot home run fences can make for some interesting upsets.

Shea Nations Picks

This weekend at the Rocky Mountain Shootout Major NIT in Aurora, CO will have 25 teams and 7 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance.  Newbreed/Steel Sports/DeMarini is the #1 overall seed and clear cut favorite.  The other teams looking to get the win without any major teams present are: Classic Glass / Easton; Nallys/D&D/Berserk; and STARS/ VSP/ Miken/ Thunder.

Rocky Moutain Predictions:  The final 4 undefeated should be: Newbreed versus Nally's and Classic Glass versus Stars.   Newbreed has enough power and pitching to go undefeated but at times will go cold at the plate.  In the losers bracket I predict all teams that drop down to win their next game.  We could see some upsets from local Colorado teams STARS/ VSP/ Miken/ Thunder; INFAMOUS/ salt riot/double cup; and Big Ten/Deluxe Athletic Brand.  Don't count out local Arkansas team J&R Logistics/Arkansas Mayhem from pulling off some upsets as well.

Shea's Final Picks for the Rocky Mountain Major:
1. Newbreed/Steel Sports/DeMarini
2. Classic Glass / Easton
3. STARS/ VSP/ Miken/ Thunder
4. Nallys/D&D/Berserk
5. Cheap Suits/Republic Realty/ CDZ
    INFAMOUS/ salt riot/double cup
