Tournament Preview

 

2018 USSSA Hall of Fame Dual bracket links

The 2018 Nationwide Conference USSSA season kicks into high gear this coming Thursday, April 19th at 8 AM Eastern time with a 35 team double elimination tournament which will end with the championship game being played on Friday night.  And then starting Friday night and ending Sunday the same top 35 teams will play another double elimination tournament.  All 35 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 3 of the Major teams and 25 'AA/A' teams will be there.   The tournament is being held at the USSSA headquarters in Viera, Florida at the Space Coast Stadium Complex with its 5 baseball fields and 325-365-385-365-325 dimensions.  They will also use a couple of the 325 foot softball fields.

This is the "Daytona 500" of softball, the most impressive team list of any Major level event in the World.  Resmondo hot off of their win in Las Vegas looks to be rejuvenated by their offseason pickups and headed in the right direction.  Dan Smith seems a little beat up from Las Vegas and Houston and look to recover in Florida.  And of course Smash It Sports looks to regain their 2017 dominance all the while trying to keep those top 'AA' teams (Pure Sports, Racks, Precision, TDB, Xtreme, Nightmare, Newbreed, and Riot Sports) at bay…

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.  

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.    

Games will be streamed on USSSALive.com

Team Pictures, Managers Meeting, and Stats!

This picture that Nightmare had taken at the Houston Major shows how the front row should kneel and the back row adjusted by height. 

They did a nice job!

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.   

Remember also the managers meeting at 6 PM Wednesday at Space Coast Stadium

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.  If your team run rules your opponent in the 6th inning with 2 outs then you mush have 17 outs accounted for.   And remember you have to take a picture or a scan of each of your score sheets and email them to dale.weiser@usssa.com as well as send the stat totals spreadsheet to stacy.hobbs@usssa.com and dale.weiser@usssa.com
