Tournament Preview

2021 Atlanta bracket and team list link

The annual "Peach State" Shootout sponsored by Kut4Sports is at Al Bishop Park in Marietta, Georgia outside of Atlanta this Friday thru Sunday. Al Bishop has 5 – 300 foot fenced fields and the weather is looking like it will be good with a chance of thunderstorms Friday evening. There are no Major teams coming but there are 30 teams in the men's bracket from 10 different states including 3 'AA' teams, 8 'A' teams, 8 'B' teams, 1 'C' team, 2 'D' teams, and for the 1st time this year 8 'E' teams. Last year due to Covid-19 the Atlanta Major was played in August. This year it returns to Memorial weekend like normal. The winning team will get 150 + (16 x 4) = 214 points and the Dudley Pro-M ball will be used along with 240 bat compression testing. There is also a nice 14 team women's Major with 2 Major teams in it (Low Bob's and Team 24) at the same complex which starts Saturday and ends Sunday.

Livestreaming and Chat Room!

The SoftballCenter.com chat room will be up and running all weekend.

Shea Nations Picks

This weekend at the Atlanta Major in Marietta, GA will have 30 teams and 14 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance including 0 major, 3 AA, 8 A, 8 B and 15 local teams. PrimeTime Easton/F.A.I/RIOT/ is the #1 overall seed. The other teams looking to upset the #1 seed: Sports Reach/Worth/CT/Grizzy; Precision/3rd St./Red Athlete/Pure; and Albicocco/Riot/Klutch/Broughton. Atlanta Predictions: The tournament starts Friday night, and all teams play 2 games except for the top 2 seeds. The Elite 8 starts at 2:00 pm and should consist of great AA vs A matchups. Look for all the AA teams to make the Final 4 which should be: Sports Reach versus Competitive Edge and Albicocco versus Precision. Precision and Competitive Edge should make it to the undefeated game. Will the pitching of LC Watson or the power hitting of Precision prevail in the undefeated game? In the loser's bracket, I predict all teams to win their next game after dropping down. Watch Kut4 Sports/OI Livingston/D2E and Eagle Paint/RTS/Ricky's to upset some Conference teams. PrimeTime Easton/F.A.I/RIOT/ is 3-9 versus B or higher Conference teams. Precision/3rd St./Red Athlete/Pure showed signs of putting it together at the Lonestar Shootout Major then ran into 2 HOT A teams, Envy/Lifetime Diamonds/Legendary and NIGHTMARE/BENEFIT THE BADGE/MIKEN. Will they continue to improve or could be at risk of making the Major World Series? Shea's Final Picks for the Atlanta Major: 1. Precision/3rd St./Red Athlete/Pure 2. CompetitiveEdge/OlmitoHeat/Adiktiv 3. Sports Reach/Worth/CT/Grizzy 4. Albicocco/Riot/Klutch/Broughton 5. Baugh Ford S & E/FRIENDLYS TRANS/WORSHAM
