Umpire Pay-at-the-Plate
  • Each team pays cash to the umpires at the pre-game meeting prior to the start of the game. 
  • See Event Info above for the cost of this event. 
  • In tournaments, teams pay for all games EXCEPT the finals. The tournament host pays for the umpires used in the finals.
  • Pay-at-the-plate is becoming the standard across the country and is already the standard across the region.
  • Pay-at-the-plate is also much fairer, as weaker teams no longer subsidize stronger teams that play more games during bracket play.
  • Teams do not need to collect as much money early in the season from parents due to the much lower event entry fees.
  • When a tournament gets shortened due to weather, teams will no longer be out money for games not played.
  • Umpires do not refund payments for games shortened by weather or other reasons. If shortened or postponed games are restarted, teams do not have to pay umpires again.
