Fall Baseball Welcomes 100!

Fall Stretch!

Ruffnecks Fall Baseball began the weekend of September 9-10 with over 100 players participating in a variety of offerings at the NEBC.  The signature program is the 13U Fall Development program.  Nearly 50 new 13 year olds took to the fields for a rigorous workout of drills and batting practice under ideal weather conditions for the first session.  The program runs for six weeks, not including the long October holiday weekend.  The 13s hail from all parts of New England.  This year’s participants include folks from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Maine.  We are very grateful for the interest in the program!

The Ruffnecks also run a HS Wood Bat and a College Prep Program.  The HS Wood Bat program caters to high school aged players who have not yet had varsity baseball experience.  A combination of intrasquad workouts and games provides modest developmental and game playing opportunities.  The College Prep program is for high school aged players who are at the varsity level of ability and age.  This year the Ruffnecks are experimenting with a “College Tour” program, designed to bring Ruffnecks to several college campuses in New England for a combined workout and game.  Among the schools being considered are Brown University, UMass-Amherst, and Trinity College.

Ruffnecks Fall Baseball is a weekend-only endeavor, designed to serve players who wish to play fall baseball without compromising other interests.  Many veteran Ruffnecks are busy playing other sports in the fall, which is strongly encouraged in the program.  We thank the families and players who attended this past weekend… Again, especially the 13U participants!
