2021 Conference Championship Bracket and Team List Link

The 2021 Nationwide Conference USSSA Championships will take place this coming weekend, September 17-19 in Columbus, Ohio at Lou Berliner Park. The men's features 31 of the top slowpitch teams in the nation including all 4 Major teams and all 6 'AA' teams and starts at 4 PM Friday afternoon and most all of the men's games are at the Field 14-17 quad with their high school baseball field dimensions. The Dudley Pro-M ball will be used and the bats will be tested at 240 compression. This year they will use 75 foot bases and the home team will be the higher seed until the "if" game where it will be a coin flip. The top 16 teams are locked into the USSSA Major World Series and will be fighting for final points/seeding. The other 15 teams will be trying to be the highest finishing non qualified team in order to get the 17th seed for the USSSA Major World Series. The 1st and 2nd rounds will be played on Friday and the "Final 8" of the winner's bracket starts on Saturday at 2:30 PM.

It is always hard to predict this tournament since many teams do not start their normal pitcher for fear of injury before Worlds.

USSSALive.com will carry the game except for field #8 which has no power

The 4 main fields at the Lou Berliner Park are baseball fields #14-17 and are of varying fence distances.

These fields although they are baseball fields they play more like the Smoky main field at Sandy Springs Park in that they are high school sized baseball fields and not MLB sized baseball fields.

Approximate Field Dimensions #14 303-330-352-352-298 #15 308-358-358-360-315 #16 300-338-358-360-300 #17 310-358-358-352-312

All other fields used are around 305 feet #1, 4, 5, 7, 8


Poll Results – Major teams usually win the conference championships but Precision won it last year.

I think S&E and SNI have a shot. Fields play similar to Myrtle Beach.
