The Fury Platinum's sister company, Connect Sports, has been successfully creating and running some of the most prestigious and well attended elite level fastpitch softball events in the country since 2005, including the famous Scenic City Showcase, regarded as one of the very top showcase events in the nation drawing all the top teams and coaches from across the nation. In 2021, they expanded into New England with the Fury Platinum New England organization. In partnership with Fury and Connect Sports, we strive to build one of the summer’s most challenging and rewarding events to the Northeast for the area’s most ambitious teams.

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.
