2019 Atlanta bracket and team list link

 

The annual "Peach State" Shootout sponsored this year by Kut4Sports is at Al Bishop Park this Friday through Sunday.  Al Bishop has 5 – 300 foot fenced fields and the weather is looking like it will be blistering hot.  This year a Major team is coming, Dan Smith who should be the favorite to win the event.  There are 31 teams total from 11 states including 13 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams fighting it out for 204 points to the winner.  This tournament is known for its upsets over the years and the extreme heat should make for some interesting games.

Out of 8 Tournaments in 2019 in Conference play, there have been 5 different winners.  While Dan Smith is the favorite, Bay Area Legends has played the Major teams very well this year, and SmashIt/Precision and Baugh Ford have won this tournament in the past.

 

Livestreaming and Chat Room!

The SoftballCenter.com chat room will be up and running all weekend.

There is going to be an emphasis on Code of Conduct at upcoming Conference events:

Section 8 – Code of Conduct

Unsportsmanlike Conduct and Inappropriate Language

Any player caught using an “F Bomb” will be subject to immediate removal from the game.  Any “F Bomb” from the dugout will require the removal of the Team Coach if the guilty party cannot be identified by the umpires. Inappropriate gestures or taunting may be cause for immediate removal from the game.  For any other use of profanity, the game will be stopped, and offending Team Coach will be warned.  Any further foul language from offender will be cause for removal from the game under the “unsportsmanlike conduct” rule.

Foul Language/Inappropriate Gestures

In keeping with our “Family” atmosphere, foul language and vulgar, lewd or obscene gestures will be dealt with immediately.  A warning will be given in most cases, but for egregious incidents, an ejection will occur. Further action by the Conference USSSA Committee or USSSA National Office may also be included.

Threatening Remarks

Threatening players, coaches, sponsors, umpires, fans or making any disparaging remarks toward anyone connected with USSSA will be reason for immediate ejection and also may include further action by the Conference USSSA Committee or USSSA National Office.

Damaging Equipment

Damaging equipment, water coolers, bat buckets, or outward displays of uncontrolled anger will be grounds for immediate ejection.  Offending player/Team will be responsible to pay for any damaged item.

Fighting

Fighting of any kind is not allowed in Conference USSSA.    All penalties will be assessed by TD and UIC, Conference USSSA Committee and a representative from USSSA National Headquarters.  For severe fighting further sanctions may be handed down from USSSA HDQTRS.

Pre & Post Game Conduct

It is the position of USSSA that umpires and USSSA Officials are protected by these rules pre, during and post scheduled games.  After-game remarks will not be tolerated if in derogatory tones. Attacking or demeaning Umpires/USSSA Officials in any manner or any location will be dealt with the same as on-field disturbances.  Social Media will offer no protection to offenders.  There is never a time when a “Free Shot” will be allowed without consequences.

Ejections and Disqualifications

In the event a player, coach or manager is ejected from a game, he or she must leave sight and sound of playing field immediately.  The Tournament Director, UIC and Umpire(s) directly involved in the situation will determine how long the player, coach or manager must sit out.  Their decision is final and non-appealable.

 


 

 

Shea Nations's Weekly Picks!

This weekend at the Kut 4 Sports Major in Atlanta, GA will have 31 teams and 13 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance including 1 major, 3 AA, 9 A and 18 local teams.  Dan Smith/Menosse/Steven Smith/FAI is the #1 overall seed and the favorite.  The other teams looking to get the win are: Riot Sports/Hubs Pub/Klutch/showtim; SmashIt/Precision/3rdStreet/Bulldaw and MPT Rentals / EVO9X.

Atlanta Predictions:  With the top half of the bracket loaded with the Major and AA teams an A team could slip into the championship game.  I predict the Final Four undefeated to be Dan Smith versus MPT and Beckham versus Baugh Ford.  Dan Smith should make it to the championship game undefeated.  In the loser's bracket, I predict Smash It/Precision to make it to the 4th place game after its Elite 8 loss to Dan Smith.

Shea Nation's Final Picks for the Atlanta Major:
1. Dan Smith/Menosse/Steven Smith/FAI
2. MPT Rentals / EVO9X
3. Baugh Ford/Kut4/OI/Miken/Worth
4. SmashIt/Precision/3rdStreet/Bulldaw
5. Beckham brothers/Pure/Exclusive
