“Battle at the Beach”
Myrtle Beach, SC
First and most important, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all of the women in our lives that let us play this silly game! Everyone involved in the Conference should petition to start the Myrtle Beach Major early Friday morning so we can finish on Saturday night and take the first flight home on Sunday to make Mother’s Day celebrations.
The 4th Myrtle Beach Major dubbed “The Battle at the Beach” is this coming weekend. It features a quality field of 14 Women’s teams who are playing a Dual event with the first tournament starting Friday morning at 8 AM and ending Friday night. The second women’s dual starts Saturday morning and ends with 4 teams coming back on Sunday. 4 Women’s Major teams will be there! The women will use a 300 foot temp fence. The men’s event is small but “top heavy” with 17 teams overall and 12 of them are from Conference USSSA including 3 Major and 4 AA teams. If there are no 1st round upsets we should have 7 Major/AA teams in the Final 8 of the winner’s bracket for Saturday morning and some big matchups Saturday afternoon and Sunday. The men’s tournament starts on Friday at 6:00 PM eastern time Friday and brings back 3 teams on Sunday. The tournament is held on the 4 – 325 foot fields at the beautiful Grand Park with the normal 8-14-16 home run limits. The fields are now completely artificial turf. The weather looks good.
The livestream will be done by USSSA this year on USSSALive.com and the chat room on ConferenceUSSSA.com will be up for updates and to answer your questions. You can follow live scoring on the BallClubz link here.
