Midnight Madness IV
Additional Information

Midnight Madness Tournaments are Back!

The all-new Day Hill Dome, right next door to Fastpitch Nation Park in Windsor CT,  will open Dec. 1. They have allocated us a limited amount of time to rent their dome for softball. This popular event at our former indoor facility has been asked for over and over this season. We are glad we can finally bring it back. We are excited to bring these events back this year in a state-of-the-art facility.

  • Overnight tournaments start Sat. night at 9pm and the finals start at 630am on Sunday morning!
  • Now in the all-new climate-controlled, state-of-the-art Day Hill Dome next door to Fastpitch Nation Park.
  • Bring your team, your sleeping bag, a pillow, and a midnight snack. But, parents are optional!
  • It's like a slumber party with softball!

Day Hill Dome Highlights:

  • Day Hill Dome is fully climate-controlled with skylights and sports LED lights.
  • The dome has two full-sized softball fields with 80' ceilings.
  • Field dimensions:
    • Field 1 - 170' down the left field line and 200' down the right field line.
    • Field 2 - 200' down the left field line and 170' down the right field line.
  • Both fields are separated by a 10' tall net wall creating a large warmup- area between each outfield.
  • Additional space is provided for only pitchers to warm up prior to their games.
  • Cleats (rubber or molded only) are allowed.      
  • Ample ground level and elevated viewing areas for spectators.

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.
