USSSA Cincy Major Conference Tournament

Shea Nations Cincy picks!

This weekend at the Cincinnati Major in Cincinnati, OH there will be 2 major teams and 6 AA teams, 8 A, 1 B and 10 local teams.  The tournament will begin on Friday evening at 5 pm with the first round games in which the top #5 seeds will all have byes.  The second round will start at 8 pm which will include only the top #5 seeds on Friday night.  TDB/Racks/Athlon is the #1 overall seed based on Conference points.  Resmondo/SIS/Thunder/RDD/H.Auto is the favorite after it's 51st annual "Smoky Mountain" championship. The other teams looking to upset a Major team are: BayArea/Rapid Fire/Bad Draw/Easton; Xtreme/Miken/ASP/Athlon; and Riot/Hub's Pub/Klutch/A&A Utility.

The Cincinnati Major Predictions:  The "Elite 8" starts at 12:30 pm on Saturday and could feature some of the same match ups that we will see at the "Conference" championship with Smash It versus Xtreme, TDB versus Riot, Bay Area versus Nightmare and Resmondo versus Newbreed.  The winners advance to the "Final Four" which should be TDB versus Xtreme and Bay Area versus Resmondo.  Immediately following the "Final Four" should be a rematch of the "Smoky Mountain" championship between Resmondo and TDB.  Can TDB get revenge from the late dominance by Resmondo or will Resmondo win their 4th tournament in a row? In the loser's bracket, I predict Riot to win 4 games after it's Elite 8 loss to TDB.

Shea's Final Picks for the Cincinnati Major:
1. TDB/Racks/Athlon
2. Resmondo/SIS/Thunder/RDD/H.Auto
3. Riot/Hub's Pub/Klutch/A&A Utility
4. Xtreme/Miken/ASP/Athlon
5. BayArea/Rapid Fire/Bad Draw/Easton


Oldscout pollsters are going with Resmondo 60%

It has been over a year since Resmondo won a Conference event on a 300 foot field with Purcells team at the tournament.  (Vegas 2018)


The two fields in the back used to be shorter but on think F3 is now 300 or more but home run management is key.

The two main fields are 300 feet all the way around.  It is 422 feet to the top of the hill on the main field out behind the homerun fence just for reference.
