2019 USSSA 'A' World Bracket and Team List Link

 

The 2019 USSSA 'A' World Tournament will be played this coming weekend at the Space Coast Complex in Viera, Florida. The tournament features 24 teams from 15 different states and 19 of them are from the Nationwide Conference USSSA.  There are 21 'A' teams, 2 'B' teams, and 1 'C' team.  Recent 'A' Worlds have had a vast amount of early round upsets which should occur again this year.  Usually 3 or 4 of the top 6 seeds lose on Friday.  With the possibility of an incoming tropical storm, expect USSSA to be flexible with the bracket schedule to get this tournament complete.

Shea Nations Picks!

This weekend the A World Tournament will take place in Viera, FL at the Space Coast Complex with 24 teams and 19 from the Nationwide Conference USSSA.  The breakdown down of teams in attendance include 21 A, 2 B teams and 1 C team.  The #1 overall seed and favorite MPT Rentals/EVO9X.  The other teams looking to upset the favorite are: Baugh Ford/Kut4/OI/Miken/Worth; TRADESMEN/LS/SPIDERZ/HANG RITE; Primetime/Evolution/FAI/Easton; Beckham brothers/Pure/Exclusive and Chanticlear/Eurotech/J&H/MikenWorth.

Predictions:  With Tropical Storm Dorian looming on the Florida coast, we will have to wait and see what impact this will have on the tournament.  The final 4 undefeated should be:  Baugh Ford/Kut4/OI/Miken/Worth versus VIVID/Play the Game and Briggs/Haymak/RemoteIT versus MPT Rentals / EVO9X.  In the loser's bracket, I predict Chanticlear to win 4 games to make it to the 3rd place for a rematch against Baugh.  Watch out for non-conference team, Briggs/Haymak/RemoteIT, to make a run deep into the tournament.

Shea Nations Final Picks for the A World Tournament are:
1. MPT Rentals / EVO9X
2. Baugh Ford/Kut4/OI/Miken/Worth
3. Chanticlear/Eurotech/J&H/MikenWorth
4. VIVID/Play the Game
5. Briggs/Haymak/RemoteIT
    TRADESMEN/LS/SPIDERZ/HANG RITE
