The 2016 Nationwide Conference USSSA season continues in Houston, Texas this weekend at the 10th Annual "Space City" Classic!  The 64 team field is the biggest in the Conference and teams come from 7 different states.  With 7 of the teams coming from the Conference they will be heavily favored.  The games are played at the Big League Dreams park where the fields are softball sized replicas of major league stadiums and the infields are all artificial turf.  The weather is expected to be warm and sunny.   The tournament will get off to a slow start and we will see if anyone can upset the Conference teams on Saturday and then let the ones that remain battle it out for the Houston title late Saturday and Sunday!

The picks this week were made by Mike Beardsley.  Lets see what he came up with!

The 10th annual Space City Classic will feature 7 Conference USSSA teams and a whopping 57 non-conference participants.  Last year saw Vivid take down a rain shortened tournament and get off to a great star that eventually saw the team make it all the way to the Men's Major World Series.  Vivid made a bit of a splash in free agency this week by adding Long Haul Bomber Champion, Chris Larsen and comes into this weekend as one of the favorites along with The Scene.  The Scene has totally revamped its roster and looks poised for another run to the Men's Major World Series.  Last year Vivid upset The Scene to take the crown, but I don't think Vivid will be sneaking up on anyone this year.  I look for The Scene to get through this tournament without too much of a fight until Sunday morning.  Vivid should have what it takes to get second.  I like Steele to finish top 4 this weekend along with Above All.

1. The Scene
2. Vivid
3. Steele
4. Above All

OldScout pollers say Scene will win 56%!
