Along with the competitive play our number 1 goal with the tournament is try and attract as many college coaches as possible. This year we were able to have more than 70 college coaches attend from all over the north east region and beyond from all levels (D 1, 2, 3 and NAIA). Next up on the NEB tournament slate is the 16u North East Baseball Classic June 29th-July 1st in Worcester, MA
