Tournament Preview



2018 Cajun Classic Bracket and Teams Link


The Cajun Classic Major will be played this weekend with 24 teams taking to the fields on Friday night starting at 7:00 PM eastern time.  The favorites are All Out from Texas, Baugh Ford from Alabama, Vivid from Texas, and Empire from Louisiana.  They will try to avoid upset from the many quality A/B/C teams in this event.  The fields are artificial turf and the "real feel" temperatures can reach up to 107 degrees so it will be very hot.  There are important points on the line as 6 Conference teams means 165 + (6 x3) = 183 points to the winner.  All Out can improve their spot in the Major World Series and Baugh Ford could solidify a spot with a win.

I sent 2 ipod livestreaming cameras to the Cajun and they are going to put them up in the air conditioned score tower.

Shea Nations picks

This weekend at the 40th annual Cajun Classic Major NIT in Carencro, LA will have 24 teams and 6 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance.  ALL OUT/A&A/STEEL SPORTS/ASP/MIKEN is the #1 overall seed but is missing several players so the possibility of an upset is very high.  The other teams looking to get the win without any major teams present are: Vivid/Killbombers/OA/Easton; Baugh Ford/Pure Sports/ Kincaid; and Tradesmen/louisville Slugger/SavOn.

Cajun Predictions:  The final 4 undefeated should be: All Out versus Kut 4 Sports and Empire versus Vivid.   All Out has enough power to make it to the undefeated game despite it's defensive replacements.  In the losers bracket I predict Team Fan Apparel to fight it's way back through the loser's bracket after the quarterfinal defeat to All Out.  We could see some upsets from local Louisiana team EMPIRE/ACADIANA BAR & GRILL/MIKEN and local Alabama team Kut4 Sports/FBC/Worth.

Shea's Final Picks for the Cajun Major:
3. Team Fan Apparel
4. Kut4 Sports/FBC/Worth
5. Vivid/Killbombers/OA/Easton
    Baugh Ford/Pure Sports/ Kincaid




Pelican Park fences are 295-300-295
