The 9th Annual "Sin City" Classic Major kicks off the 14th season of the Nationwide Conference USSSA league!  The tournament which begins Friday, March 29th at 2:30 PM Pacific time features 10 of the top 20 teams in this years SoftballCenter pre-season rankings and 19 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams over all.  All 4 of the Major teams will be in Las Vegas and there are 48 teams total in the Men's Major bracket and 17 quality teams in the Women's Major as well.  Last year Resmondo won the event over Dan Smith and Brett Helmer's Resmondo team has now won Las Vegas 5 times.  A non Major team has never won the Las Vegas Major in its 9 years.

If my (DW's) flight is on time, the new equipment works with the new data plan I hope to have all games streamed on USSSALive.com.  The new chat room will also be up on SoftballCenter.com to keep people informed.  Live streaming will continue through the championship game which is set for Sunday at 10:30 AM Pacific time.   The tournament is being held at the Big League Dreams park at 3151 East Washington Street.  The fields feature artificial turf infields and each field is modeled after the look and feel of a major league baseball stadium.  Yankee is the main field.

The weather looks to be very good with sun and low 70's for a high.  The home run rule in the Conference is Major vs Major teams hit 16 HR per team.  'AA' and 'A' vs any class is 12 home runs per team.  And 'B' and below vs 'B' or non conference vs non conference games hit 8 homers per team.  The tournament winner will receive 19 x 4 + 150 = 226 Conference points.  2nd place-186.  3rd-166.  4th-156.  There are usually some pretty big upsets but when Sunday rolls around there are usually at least 2 Major teams standing.

I hope everyone has a great season and want to thank USSSA for their continued support of the Conference which is THE SHOWCASE of slowpitch softball.  And I encourage them to empower the directors and umpires of these events to do what is right and fair with regards to competition, rules, seeding, and unsportsmanlike conduct.  Lets have a safe and competitive season and make great memories!

Tournament Picks by Shea Nation:

Shea Nation returns to do the weekly picks!

This week the Sin City Major by Miken has 19 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance with 4 major, 4 AA, 8 A, 3 B and 29 non-conference teams.  The #1 overall seed is the defending Major World Series Champion Resmondo/SIS/RDD/H.Auto/Sprizzi/S&S and is the favorite to win.  The other teams looking to upset the favorite are the other 3 major teams: Dan Smith/Menosse/Steven Smith/FAI;  Smash it/ Pure Sports/Anarchy/ OA; and TDB/Racks.


Miken Sin City Predictions:  Like the NCAA tournament we could see the a couple upsets if one of the conference teams gets caught up in the lights of Vegas.  I predict Final Four matchups to be Smash It versus Resmondo and TDB versus Dan Smith.  I predict Resmondo beating Smash It then beating TDB.  In the loser's bracket I predict all the teams that drop down to win their next game.  So the 5th Place games should be Newbreed versus Dan Smith and Nightmare versus Smash It.  If all holds true like predicted then Dan Smith and Smash It would play for 4th place.
Who will be this year's Cinderella?

Final Picks for the Miken Sin City Major:
1. Resmondo/SIS/RDD/H.Auto/Sprizzi/S&S
2. TDB/Racks
3. Dan Smith/Menosse/Steven Smith/FAI
4. Smash It/Pure Sports/Anarchy/OA
5. NIGHTMARE/MIKEN
    Newbreed/Cutter LLC/Thunder

    The adds in the middle of a game is doing way too much & pointless. The ad should be after every be half inning honestly. every time the Dietz Nutz commercial comes on the live feed freezes
