"Battle on the Chesapeake"


Nationwide Conference USSSA!


July 25-26


Tournament Preview


2020 Maryland bracket and team list link

The Bash on the Chesapeake Major returns to Glen Burnie, Maryland outside of Baltimore this coming weekend.  The tournament features 20 teams from 9 different states, including 3 Major teams (Dan Smith, Resmondo, and Pure Sports).  7 of the teams are from the Nationwide Conference USSSA so the winner will get 165 + (3 x 7) = 186 points.  The weather looks good although it will be hot and the fields play short so home run management and fielding the hard shots off the dirt infields will be key when teams try to keep it in the park.  The Bachman Complex has 6 fields which will all be used for 4 rounds of games starting at 8 AM Saturday morning and ending early Sunday and they are bringing back 3 teams. 

Last year the Maryland Major had a bunch of upsets as MPT Rentals an 'A' team beat out major team Pure Sports and 'AA' power SIS/Thunder for the tournament championship!

This year the #1 seed Dan Smith who has won two big tournaments in a row on 300 foot fields in Cincinnati will be the heavy favorite.  They only have 'A' teams on their side of the bracket but are currently ranked 2nd in the nation in the computer rankings due to their 3 losses vs 'A' teams this year.  On the top side of the bracket Pure Sports and Resmondo are set up for a showdown Saturday afternoon to see who plays the favorite Dan Smith in the winner's final. 

I (DW) will be traveling to Maryland on Friday and hope to set up live stream cameras on all 6 fields for the start of the tournament Saturday.

SheaNations Predictions!

This weekend at the Bash on the Chesapeake Major NIT in Baltimore, MD will have 20 teams and 7 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance including 3 major, 0 AA, 4 A, 5 B and 8 C teams.  Dan Smith/Menosse/Steven Smith/FAI  is the #1 overall seed and the favorite.  The other teams looking to upset the #1 seed or favorite are: Pure Sports/ Infamous/ EB and Resmondo/Smash IT/Sonny's/JJ's/RDD/.

Maryland Predictions:  The final 4 undefeated should be: Pure Sports versus Resmondo and Sports Reach versus Dan Smith.  Dan Smith and Resmondo should make it to the undefeated game.  In the losers bracket look for TurnKey/CCP/Dan Smith/Worshams an A team from North Carolina and Maroadi/SNI/Easton an 'A' team from Florida to make it to the 5th place games.

1. Dan Smith/Menosse/Steven Smith/FAI
