REGISTRATION IS OPEN Firecracker X - 2018

January 24, 2018

We are currently accepting teams for the 2018 Firecracker Tournament, which runs from June 15 - 24, 2018. This partnership represents a huge step forward for our tournament.  


We will have Town & Club Divisions from 8U - 16U.  Baseball Registration for the tournament is $500 for 8U - 10U & $600 11U - 16U.  

Field Dimensions are as follows  - BASEBALL - 8U - 42/60 ; 9-10U - 46/60;  11 & 12U - 50/70; 13 & 16U - 60/90. 

The 'Cracker has grown from 26 Teams in Year 1 to over 80 Teams last year, and over 500 Teams since it started.  None of it is possible without the commitment from the volunteers, but most of all the players, coaches & parents of the participating teams. 

This is a labor of love & never did we think it would grow to be as big as it has. The tournament has outgrown just being held in just a few locations.  Our volunteers were stretched to the limit. We are looking for additional sites/teams to host.  If you have an interest in being a host site, please respond to this email.  We would very likely just need your fields for Saturday, June 16 & Sunday, June 17, 2018.

Our hope is to have Championship Weekend in Maywood, NJ, where the tournament started, and the spirit of what has become one of the biggest tournaments in the metropolitan area, will be as strong as ever thanks to your continued support.

TOURNAMENT FORMAT - The format is 3 Games of Pool pay on the first weekend. (6/15-17), plus Semifinals & Championship for those that qualify is the following weekend (6/22-24), as well as Consolation games for place.

Each team is guaranteed 4 games minimum and this format allows everyone the ability to continue playing in their Summer Leagues or 4th of July Tournaments with either MINIMAL or NO interference.
