The Seattle "Dual" Major will start on Thursday afternoon at 11 AM Pacific time with all 26 teams playing as many as 3 games on Thursday.  The first tournament continues all day Friday with the championship game set for 3:30 PM.  The first Dual will use the Dudley Classic M ball on all 5 fields which will have 300 foot fence distances.  The second dual tournament actually starts while the first one is finishing on Friday and continues all day on Saturday with the championship set for Sunday at 11 AM.   In the second dual there will be 16 teams and all of the winner's bracket games and a few games at the end of the loser's bracket will be played on the baseball field with its 327-367-362-360-331 fence distance and use the Dudley Stadium ZN ball with unlimited home runs.  A majority of the loser's bracket games will be played on field #3 with unlimited home runs and the Dudley Classic M ball. 

There is also a nice 8 team Women's Dual Major featuring 3 'AA' teams, 4 'A' teams, and a 'B' team.  

All games should be live on USSSALive.com/ConferenceUSSSA once I get there Thursday around noon to setup the cameras.  Look for updates in the chat room.

Shea Nations Weekly Picks!

This weekend at the Easton Derby Dual Major in Kent, Washington will have all three major teams and the top 1 AA team with confidence after it's tournament win in Tulsa.  The team list includes a total of 26 teams and 11 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance with 3 major,  1 AA, 4 A, 3 B and 15 local teams.  Smash It/Thunder/Backman/TDB/Miken is the favorite after it's midseason roster moves and the #1 overall seed based on Conference points.  The other teams looking to get the win: Dan Smith/Menosse/Steven Smith and Resmondo/RDD/H.Auto/All In/Sprizzi/.

"The Derby Dual" Major I Predictions:  The "Final Four" starts at 8:00 pm on Thursday with Smash It versus Newbreed followed by Dan Smith versus Resmondo.  The winners advance to the undefeated game at 12:30 pm on Friday. Can an A team pull off an upset in the loser's bracket?

Shea's Final Picks for the "Derby Dual" Major I:
1. Smash It/Thunder/Backman/TDB/Miken
2. Resmondo/RDD/H.Auto/All In/Sprizzi/
3. Dan Smith/Menosse/Steven Smith
4. Newbreed/Steel Sports/DeMarini
5. Primetime/Easton/Evolution
   Tradesmen/louisville Slugger/SavOn


"The Derby Dual" Major II Predictions:  The second tournament consists of the top 16 teams that are B classification or higher.  The "Final Four match ups should be the same as the first dual with Resmondo versus Dan Smith at 5:00 pm and Smash It versus Newbreed at 6:30 pm.  I predict Resmondo's roster pick up of LC Watson could help out in the grueling dual event and upset Smash It in the second dual.

Shea's Final Picks for the "Derby Dual" Major II:
1. Resmondo/RDD/H.Auto/All In/Sprizzi/
2. Smash It/Thunder/Backman/TDB/Miken
3. Newbreed/Steel Sports/DeMarini
4. Dan Smith/Menosse/Steven Smith
5. Classic Glass / Easton
   Cheap Suits/Republic Realty/ CDZ
