Umpire Pay-at-the-Plate
  • Each team pays cash to the umpires at the pre-game meeting prior to the start of the game. 
  • Teams pay for all games EXCEPT the finals. The tournament host pays for the umpires used in the finals.
    • Timed Games (no new inning after) 90 mins or less = $55 per team.
    • Timed Games (no new inning after ) longer than 90 mins but less than 2 hrs = $60 per team.
    • Untimed games of 7 innings or more (6 innings for 10U) = $65 per team.
  • Pay-at-the-plate is becoming the standard across the country and is already the standard in the elite level of the game.
  • It's 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 practical, we will limit the number of teams in bracket play with Gold, Silver, Bronze, etc brackets to minimize the number of bracket games played.
  • When a tournament gets shortened due to weather, teams will no longer be out money for those games not played.
