15U/21’s Schedule & Results

2018 Schedule Puts Ruffnecks in Spotlight

Team in Nashville, TN

Several years ago Coach Graber defined the 15U Ruffnecks year as the season when players transition from boy’s baseball to men’s baseball.  The 2018 schedule takes that definition up a notch.  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.  This year’s 2021 Ruffnecks play a schedule that features the same level of competition as the 2020’s and the Seniors.  Indeed, the squad attends many of the same events as their Ruffnecks brethren.

2018 features several new initiatives for the 15U/2021 Ruffnecks.  Following early summer preparation in June, the squad will participate in the 18U NEB Invitational, followed by the 16U Summer Solstice at the NEBC.  In mid-June the 15u/2021’s travel with the 16U/2020’s to South Carolina to play in the 16U Black Bear Classic.  This is the first year that Ruffnecks plan to attend the event which is staged at Furman University, Clemson, and various venues in South Carolina.  The squad returns home to compete in the 17U PG Super25 at the NEBC before heading to Nashville to play in the 16U Music City Classic.  Back home, the 16U PG Super25 and then the 18U Boston Invitational provide competitive challenge and exposure for this Ruffnecks roster, most of whom are coming off of their first year of high school baseball.

The team competes in the 15U Perfect Game WWBA in Emerson, GA, which challenges against some of the top age and class-specific competition in the country.  Following Georgia, the Ruffnecks participate locally in the Elite-8 and in the first ever Boston College Team Camp Invitational.  2018 has very few off days from the beginning of June until the end of July.  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.
