15U/23’s Schedule & Results

2020 Summer Schedule is Chance to Compete

Coach Graber Instructs

The 2020 schedule for the 15U Ruffnecks is a highly competitive experience against older competition.  Historically, Coach Graber defines the 15U Ruffnecks year as the season when players transition from boy’s baseball to men’s baseball.  With the cancellation of high school baseball in 2020, many of the rising 15U Ruffnecks who would have been on high school varsity or JV rosters lost an opportunity to play against older competition.  The 2020 Ruffnecks summer schedule is weighted in competition against teams comprised of older rosters.  Organizationally, we refer to our Ruffnecks teams from 15U and up by their graduation class.  This is appropriate in the context of how college recruiters see us and build their recruiting boards.  The 15U/2023 Ruffnecks play a schedule that features the same level of competition, in many of the same events, as the 16U and 17U Ruffnecks.

Once we are cleared to begin, the 2020 features challenging tournament play.  Our purpose in the Covid-19 plan is to include as much development and game activity as possible… whenever it begins.  This means the June to August time frame may adjust to include and extend into the month of August.  Our goal is to play baseball.  Tournaments may undergo compressed schedules, often, with two games a day.  Our intent is to include as much practice as possible, in small or large increments.  Access to the fields at NEBC is an asset.  Some events will likely be moved and/or rescheduled.  The late-June travel to Nashville is cancelled.

The squad plays in 16U Underclass World Series and the Boston College Team Camp Invitational near the end of July.  During the first week of August 15U Ruffnecks have an opportunity to participate in a combined roster at the College Prep Invitational at the NEBC.  It is a schedule that taxes the durability of young players.  Practice time, development, and competition set a high bar for this group of Ruffnecks.  The task takes on an increasingly important developmental role for this class of players in 2020.  We maintain our focus on playing as much baseball as possible in the summer of 2020.
