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!
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.
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.
Have taken my 19u team to this tournament many times. Great value and we always get great competition on the best fields in the area. The 4th of July tournament is an automatic for us to play in every year. Mark and his group run a great tournament and really have this down to a science. Keep up the great work and see you in July!!
Firecracker Baseball is right up there with the big tournaments run in New England. The caliber of teams that come to the tournaments is amazing. The facilities they use are the best available in MA and RI. Most appealing is the partnerships they have created with companies like ProNine, Power Showcase and Perfect Playcement! I can’t wait for the 2019 Tournaments
