2018 Conference Championship Bracket and Team List Link

 

 

The 2018 Nationwide Conference USSSA Championships take place this coming weekend, August 31st – September 2nd in Viera, Florida at the USSSA headquarters at the Space Coast complex.  The "Red" baseball quad will be used for the tournament instead of the stadium and the baseball fields have the same dimensions as the stadium 325-365-385-365-325 and are all artificial turf.  11 of the top 12 teams in the country will play to jockey for the final points and seeding for the USSSA Major World Series in a few weeks.  #2 Dan Smith still has a chance to overtake #1 Resmondo for the #1 seed at the major.  To do so Dan Smith would have to win and Resmondo would have to finish 3rd or worse by my calculations.  If Dan Smith finished 2nd then Resmondo would have to finish last to drop out of the #1 seed for the Major.  'A' teams are playing the 'A' Worlds so they will not be in the Conference Championships but also cannot lose their current seed.  The tournament will use the Stadium ZN on the baseball fields and the managers meeting is set for 2 PM over by the building near the Red Quad which is headquarters for this event. 

The Conference Championship banquet will take place in the concourse at the Stadium on Saturday evening.  

 

REMEMBER all players need to print and fill out a waiver for the park

 

POINTS SCENARIOS

Resmondo is the favorite to win the event as they have done well on the big fields this year but Dan Smith who won Columbus does have the momentum and the #1 seed for the Major does come with the added advantage of being home team in every game as well as playing more games at night.  Dan Smith will have Kevin Kennington playing for the first time this year and #3 Smash It is reportedly playing without center fielder Nic Santana who was dismissed from the team.  A number of the 'AA' teams are also missing players like Pure Sports who is missing Ryan McClanahan (maternity leave) and Justin Mucciarelli (Injury avoidance).

The tournament starts Friday at 4 PM eastern time and teams play into the night Friday as many as 3 games, then the tournament resumes early Saturday morning with the loser's bracket, and into Saturday afternoon.  Then the tournament pauses for the Annual Nationwide Conference Awards banquet and finishes up on Sunday.

 

USSSALive.com will have stationary cameras on all of the games and I believe the Banquet Awards.

The chat room here at SoftballCenter.com will also be up all weekend.
