The Texas Legends Major begins this coming Thursday at the all turf fields at Texas Star Park in Euless just outside of Dallas. They will play a dual tournament and the men’s tournament features 39 teams from 20 different states with a record 33 of the teams from the Conference USSSA! There will be 4 Major teams, 10 ‘AA’ teams, 13 ‘A’ teams, and 11 ‘B’ teams. That means even more ‘B’ and higher teams than the Hall of Fame Classic just two weeks ago. The field of teams is as good a field as the Texas Legends tournament has ever had with 27 of the top teams in the country led by the 4 Major teams – Resmondo who won the Las Vegas Major and won the 2nd Hall of Fame Duals to start the season. Monsta who won Hall of Fame Dual #1. MPT Rentals last years USSSA Major World Series champions, and Competitive Edge the new Major team who won the ‘AA’ Worlds in 2022. The Dudley Pro-M ball will be used with 8 to 16 HR limits depending on the class of teams playing. The weather will be cool and there is some rain in the forecast. The fences at the main complex are 300 feet down the lines and go out to 310 in center field. The scores will be high! The livestream will be up at USSSALive.com and the USSSA Chat Room will be open from Friday through Sunday to discuss the tournament. Also the Conference Prime Time Channel has an announcer that jumps around to the best game at any given time. The women’s Conference is also in Euless across/down the street from the men’s fields and they have 16 teams including 2 Major teams La Famiglia and Lady SNI.
Look for the upsets we have had all year to continue throughout these 4 upcoming days of softball but look for the Major teams to pull through at the end. Resmondo in particular as the #1 seed has no other Major teams in the top half of the Dual #1 bracket so they can really continue to add to their points lead. Don’t forget to play the Juno Athletics Texas Legends Pickem game. And Last year Smash It Sports won the tournament on a walk off homer by Buddy Wolf. The tournament is seeded on 2023 Conference points which puts 3 of the Major teams on the same side of the winner’s bracket for Dual #1. The winning team in Euless, Texas will earn 180 + (33 x 4) = 312 points! With 2nd place getting 272, 3rd-252, 4th-242, 5th-232 etc… And remember tied for 24th and lower only receive participation points (132). And here is a link to the BallClubz live scoring and don’t forget my video on how to follow major softball.
Softball World, now Texas Star Park, always has some of the best atmosphere of any conference event in the country.
