Our model of providing the best experience of playing on college and premier fields offer a unique opportunity. Yes we do not play in multi-field complexes such as Diamond Nation and New England Baseball Complex but our ability to put you on campuses for tournament pool play, College Showcase Camps along with interacting with the coach is unique and something no other organization can say they do. We market the schools attending along with the coaches that are confirmed because we are compensating them to be there along with getting evaluations from them for our student athletes, teams and coaches. Over the last 3 years our numbers have sky rocketed from 40+ coaches attending in 2016, 75+ in 2017 to over 100+ in 2018 alone…more great things to come in 2019!

  • Over 50+ coaches at our 4th of July Showcase Tournament!

  • Many of our site supervisors are college/pro coaches working the tournaments.

  • Our Showcase Camps include drills, working 1 on 1 with college coaches. This segment is unique to many other showcase camps offered in this industry.

Premier and Top Facilities

  • We rent out the top college/universities within a 45 minute area of our events for you to play your games, showcase camps and experience the campus.

  • We secure some of the best stadiums around such as the Ballpark at the Beach; McCoy Stadium; Goodall Park; Cubeta Stadium and Peekskill Stadium. More to come shortly!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

You can take our word for it, but it’s better to hear it from our participants that keep coming back

Samurai Baseball plays a lot of tournaments every year and this is one of our favorite stops. Great competition playing on beautiful fields at a perfect time of year for a great price. Had great baseball times meeting great baseball people. Nice Job!

Ken Lalli | General Manager, Samurai Baseball Academy | Taunton, Massachusetts

I have been coaching for the past 20 years, and I have entered my teams in a ton of tournaments. Every year, I take my Flemington Post 159 team to the 4th of July tournament. It is by far the best tournament that we enter, and it is by far the best run tournament. It permits my players a nice 3-4 hour trip plus playing on great college fields with the ability to actually play games and not be forced off fields with ridiculous time limits. More importantly, the exposure my kids get from the colleges in attendance during the showcase and the games is second to none. This trip has been successful for us on many levels but none more so than having great colleges look at my players. If there is any team out there looking for a well organized tournament with great competition, Firecracker is a no brainer.

Steve Farisou | General Manager, Whitehouse Post 284 | Flemington, New Jersey

The Firecracker was one of the better overall tournaments we have played in — and we travel all over. The college fields and complexes were well-maintained and the staff worked hard to get them ready. The showcase nature of the event was as-advertised, as we made quality contacts with some college coaches. The 4 day (Friday-Monday) format was great, as it allowed our families to enjoy some time at the Maine sites as well. The only negative was a semi-final game on a poorly maintained high school field— but otherwise we would recommend this tournament.
