Every College Coach in the Northeast has been invited. Many coaches attend and never let us know they are coming. Many wish to stay anonymous or just not advertise they are coming so they are not crushed by overzealous parents. Some coaches contact us that they will attend in the Fall. Many will attend and never let us know. In the Fall fewer coaches attend than in the Summer. Coaches who will tell us they are coming will start to let us know usually in September.  

See who attended our July event in person or by live stream. Many of the same coaches attend in the Fall.

College Coaches please E-Mail if attending or want live stream access.

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 the Event Info above for the cost for 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 has become the standard across the region.
  • Pay-at-the-plate is a fairer system, 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 lose 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.
