All game times on the bracket are CENTRAL time!

 

This is the 2nd year that the Lonestar Shootout is a Conference USSSA men's and women's event and it is being held at the 8 field Mansfield, Texas Big League Dreams park outside of Dallas.  There are 36 teams including 16 from the Nationwide Conference which means big points!  The winner will earn 150 + (16 x 4) = 214 points.  Precision is the only 'AA' team but I don't think they will have an easy weekend with some of the top 'A' teams in the country playing like Seminoles from Oklahoma, Envy from Texas, MyAutoJack from Arizona, and last years winner Classic Glass.  The BLD fields are those major league replica fields with smaller but differing dimensions on each field and the tournament starts on Friday night at 5 PM central.  On Saturday the women's major begins at 11 AM Central time with 12 teams and it looks like 8 of them are from Conference USSSA so another nice event for the women.  The women finish up on Sunday.  The weather will be cooler than normal for Texas with a chance of rain both Saturday and Sunday.

Livestream:  USSSALive.com  8 cameras were sent to Mansfield.

The chat room will be up on SoftballCenter.com as well.

Shea Nation makes his picks for Mansfield, TX!

This weekend at the Lonestar Shootout Major NIT in Mansfield, TX will have 36 teams and 16 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance including 0 major, 1 AA, 10 A, 17 B and 8 C teams.  Classic Glass/Easton is the #1 overall seed but I consider Precision/3rd St./Red Athlete/Pure the favorite.  The other teams looking to upset the #1 seed and favorite are: NIGHTMARE/BENEFIT THE BADGE/MIKEN; SEMINOLES/TPS/NACSF.INC; Bay Area Legends/Easton and Envy/Lifetime Diamonds/Legendary.

Lonestar Predictions:  The tournament starts Friday night with all Conference teams playing 1 game and look for all to advance to Sweet 16 on Saturday morning.  The Elite 8 begins at 2:15 and should host some matchups that we will see at A World's.  So I predict the Elite 8 to be: MAJ/KNELL/Dirty Sports/DTS/DOMN8 versus SEMINOLES/TPS/NACSF.INC; PrimeTime Easton/F.A.I/RIOT/ versus Bay Area Legends/Easton; Precision/3rd St./Red Athlete/Pure versus L & S Glass; Classic Glass/Easton versus NIGHTMARE/BENEFIT THE BADGE/MIKEN.  I predict the final 4 undefeated to be: Seminoles versus Bay Area and Precision versus Nightmare.  Seminoles and Precision should make it to the undefeated game.  In the loser's bracket, I predict Classic Glass to make a run after losing in the Elite 8.  Also, look for Envy to make a run after losing in the 2nd round.

Shea's Final Picks for the Lonestar Major:
1. Precision/3rd St./Red Athlete/Pure
2. NIGHTMARE/BENEFIT THE BADGE/MIKEN
3. SEMINOLES/TPS/NACSF.INC
4. Classic Glass/Easton
5. Bay Area Legends/Easton
   Envy/Lifetime Diamonds/Legendary
