This tournament will be an 8 team pool play tournament, with two pools of 4 teams. Each team will play 3 pool play games on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The top team in each game is the home team and each team will have at least one home game. Following pool play, the teams will be seeded in their pool (1 through 4). The 4th place teams in each pool will be eliminated and the remaining teams will move to the single elimination round, which will begin on Monday. The 1st place teams in each pool will get a bye in the elimination round.
The full game schedule is included in this package.
Our concession stand at Wolcott Park (down the left field line) will be fully operational. Bathrooms are available in the same building as the concessions stand.
Fine Designs will be at Wolcott Park throughout the day on Sunday, July 17th selling customized tournament merchandise.

See details on both fields below. The driving time between Fern Park and Wolcott Park is about 10 minutes. Properly leashed dogs are allowed in both parks.

The GPS address for Wolcott Park is 1341 New Britain Avenue, but that is misleading. Better to set your GPS to Wolcott Road and park in the lower parking lot. There is another parking lot off of Chatfield Drive, but it can get crowded.
The GPS address for Fern Park is 567 Fern Street. There are two large parking lots just off of Fern Street. There is also street parking on the other side of Fern Park (on Whitman Avenue).
