I have brought teams to this event for the past five years, and every year the competition gets better. The big drawback is you have to have some connection with Connecticut. The tournament director Patrick Fisher is as good as they come. He and his staff work tirelessly to provide the best fields, umpires and competition available. They are accommodating when necessary and are easily contacted by phone, email or text to answer any questions or to handle any situation that might arise. This tournament is inexpensive (around $500.00) for 3 games plus playoffs and finals ( finals held at Beehive Stadium in New Britain) . I highly recommend this event to everyone.
