Pool play format will be used with all teams guaranteed to play at least 4 games (weather permitting). Teams will be placed in pools, based solely on where they are from. We like to place teams from different areas against each other to allow the kids to play teams from different areas, cities and play against different players then they are normally used to. We also rotate teams around, year to year, from different facilities so they get to play on different college and high school fields.
Participation is limited to 30 teams per location and is expected to fill up before January 31, 2018 as usual. Registration for this tournament is $950.00, including a box of game baseballs. There are discounts for entering by different dates, so check registration form and website regulary. Please fill out the registration form and pay online to insure your team a spot in this tournament. Upon receipt of your application and payment, an email will be sent confirming your entry and that your spot is secured. Your spot is NOT fully secured until payment is received.
All Umpires are High School board certified. All games will have 2 umpires during pool play and playoffs. There will be 3 umpires for all Championship games. Preliminary round games will take place at area high school and collegiate fields with the playoffs and championship games at college facilities. We are finalizing contracts now with local colleges and high schools to put you and your programs on the top fields in the Westchester, NY area. We always use the best fields to give our players, coaches and families a first class experience, 2017's Colonial Clash Showcase championship games took place at NCAA D2's Pace University. In addition to Pace University, we are expecting to use Concordia College, Mercy College, St. Joesph's of Long Island, Dowling College, SUNY-Purchase, along with top HS fields such as Yorktown HS, Mount Saint Michael Academy and Greenwich HS.
We also contact all the local colleges and professional scouts in this area to let them know about the tournament, team rosters and schedules to get your student athletes more exposure for that weekend. This past summer we had over 81 representatives from college and professional programs, including Wheaton College, Boston College, Bryant University, Salve Regina University, Farleigh Dickinson University, Johnson & Wales University, Brown University, University of Rhode Island, Assumption College, Nicholls College, Stonehill College, the College of the Holy Cross, CCRI, Union College, Quinicipac University, and Skidmore College, University of San Fransisco along with scouts from the New York Mets, Boston Red Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Tampa Rays, Miami Marlins, New York Yankees, Toronto Blue Jays, Pittsburgh Pirates and Seattle Mariners.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. If you have had a good time in the past, please pass along our information to any other programs/teams in your area and we look forward to hearing from you soon. We hope you had success in 2017 with your program and wish you the best in you’re planning for the 2018 baseball season.
