Shea Nations Picks

This weekend at the Salt Lake City Classic Dual Major Presented by Easton in South Jordon, Utah the team list includes a total of 23 teams and 7 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance including 0 major, 2 AA, 5 A and 16 local teams.  Bay Area Legends/Easton is the favorite and the #1 overall seed based on Conference points.  The other teams looking to get the win: Xtreme/Miken/Worth/Athlon/ASP, Cheap Suits/Republic Realty/EA and Classic Glass/Easton.

"Salt Lake City Dual" Major I Predictions:  The "Final Four" starts at 3:30 pm MST on Friday with Xtreme versus Classic Glass and Cheap Suits versus Bay Area.  The winners advance to the undefeated game at 5:00 pm MST on Friday. Watch for Classic Glass to make a run through the loser's bracket after their Lonestar Shootout Major Championship.

Shea's Final Picks for the "Salt Lake City Dual" Major I:
1. Bay Area Legends/Easton
2. Xtreme/Miken/Worth/Athlon/ASP

4. Cheap Suits/Republic Realty/EA
5. L & S Glass
    LEVELS

"Salt Lake City Dual" Major II Predictions:  The second tournament isn't based on conference standings so we could see some upsets.  The "Final Four match ups should be Bay Area versus Classic Glass at 6:30 pm MST and Xtreme versus Cheap Suits at 8:00 pm MST.  I predict Bay Area and Xtreme to make it to the undefeated game at 9:30 on Saturday.  The Top 5 should be the same in both tournaments.
