Shea Nations Picks

This weekend at the Louisville Slugger/Demarini Classic Major NIT in Charlotte, NC will have 16 teams and 9 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance including 1 major, 1 AA, 6 A, 1 B and 7 local teams.  Pure Sports is the #1 overall seed and the favorite.  The other teams looking to upset the #1 seed or favorite are: Newbreed/Cutter LLC, Beckham brothers/Pure/Exclusive and Baugh Ford/Kut4/OI/Miken/Worth.

North Carolina Predictions:  If Pure Sports finishes 1st then they will leapfrog Bay Area Legends for the 4th spot in the rankings.  So, with that being said the final 4 undefeated should be: Beckham versus Newbreed and Baugh versus Pure Sports.  Pure Sports and Newbreed should make it to the championship.  In the loser's bracket, the winner of the 4th place game between Beckham and Baugh Ford will get the 16th seed at the Major World Series.

Shea's Final Picks for the North Carolina Major:
1. Pure Sports
2. Newbreed/Cutter LLC
3. Baugh Ford/Kut4/OI/Miken/Worth
4. Beckham brothers/Pure/Exclusive
