The 39th Annual Busch Classic in Little Rock, Arkansas will be this Friday through Sunday.  175 teams across 6 mens and womens divisions highlighted by the Conference mens and womens Majors.  The mens major tournament features 29 'C' and above teams including 7 from the Nationwide Conference USSSA.  All Out/A&A/Steel Sports/ASP/Miken will be the favorite as they battle local Arkansas 'A' team Team Fan Apparel, and Conference 'A' teams Nally's, Smashitsports, Vivid, Seminoles, and Wood Law for the title.  The tournament is going to be hot with a chance of thunderstorms and the winner will get a coveted 165 + (7 x 3) = 186 points which could definitely play in to one of these teams obtaining a berth into the USSSA Major World Series.  There should be lots of upsets using the classic m ball on the 300 foot fences.  There is a home run derby at 8 PM Central time on Friday night.  There is also a big 26 team Women's Major with 2 'AA' teams in it.

A few of the umpires are helping put up the livestream so please be patient as it is not in their normal responsibilities to do this and we appreciate their help.  They have 3 ipad cameras, I believe 2 will be on the Major and one on the women's Major.

Shea Nations Picks

Shea Nation won the SoftballCenter pickem last week in the Dudley.

This weekend at the 39th Busch Classic Major NIT in Sherwood, AR will have 29 teams and 7 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance including 0 major, 1 AA, 4 A, 2 B and 22 local teams.  ALL OUT/A&A/STEEL SPORTS/ASP/MIKEN is the #1 overall seed.  If ALL OUT/A&A/STEEL SPORTS/ASP/MIKEN wins then they will receive 186 points and surpass Xtreme/Miken/ASP/Athlon for 7th in the Conference USSSA Standings and the seedings for the Smoky Mountain Classic Major.  The other teams looking to get the win without any major teams present are: Nallys/D&D/Berserk; SEMINOLES/TPS/NACSF.INC/EASTON; and Vivid/Killbombers/OA/Easton.

Busch Predictions:  The final 4 undefeated should be: All Out versus Team Fan Apparel a local Arkansas team lead by ex-major player Tim Howard and Seminoles versus Vivid.   All Out should cruise to Sunday as the undefeated team.  In the losers bracket I predict Nally's to fight it's way back to the championship game.  We could see some upsets from local Arkansas teams J&R Logistics/Arkansas Mayhem and AFTERSHOCK.

Shea Nations Final Picks for the Busch Major:
1. ALL OUT/A&A/STEEL SPORTS/ASP/MIKEN
2. Nallys/D&D/Berserk
3. Vivid/Killbombers/OA/Easton
4. SEMINOLES/TPS/NACSF.INC/EASTON
5. Wood Law
    Team Fan Apparel

    The Final 4 cant have Team Fan Apparel vs All-Out. They will meet in the final 8. Seminoles are on the bottom with All Out and Vivid is with Smash It and Nallys…….Did the bracket change when SheaNation made picks?

    • DW says:

      Yes the bracket changed after Shea made his picks. Some of the seeding for conference and non conference teams were incorrect.
