16U Schedule & Results

2017 Season Defined By Coaching & Developing Talent

Coach Kirk Fredericks

Not much differentiates the Ruffnecks 16U summer from the Seniors Summer.  The two rosters play on similar stages, even in many of the same events.  The 16U Ruffnecks are led by one of the most experienced, and knowledgeable coaching staffs at this level, anywhere.  Head Coach Kirk Fredericks is the longest tenured coach in the Ruffnecks program.  His service is a decade-long in 2017.  Fredericks brings a reputation as a consummate teacher of the game.  His exacting style is combined with a deep understanding of the game and how players this age learn.

The 16s travel to several of the top events for 16U and 17U/18U competition in the nation.  The annual visit to the Music City Classic in Nashville, Tennesse and the 16U Perfect Game WWBA in Emerson, Georgia shine as high exposure and challenging baseball events.  The squad also attends the Super 17 at Diamond Nation with the Senior Ruffnecks.  Early season combined rosters provide an opportunity for 16U players to participate in the Battle at the Border.  While at home, the 16U Ruffnecks compete in several high profile events at the New England Baseball Complex: The 18U NEB Invitational; Both the 17U and 16U PG Super25 Regionals; The 16U Underclass World Series; and more.  The squad traveled to Syracuse in 2016 and will likely return again with the Senior Ruffnecks to participate in the Syracuse Invitational.  In early August the 16s have an opportunity (optional) to participate in the Blue Chips Prospects event at Diamond Nation.  The travel schedule and the competition is intensive.  The physical demands on players are significant.  16U Ruffnecks Baseball continues to provide one of the top developmental and exposure platforms for aspiring college baseball players in the region.

Our roster is comprised primarily of class of 2019 graduates with several 16U 2018 grads as well.  The team returns strong starting pitching and a solid offensive lineup featuring an outfield that is experienced and talented.  DSeveral strong additions to the pitching staff should provide an opportunity for the team to be a contender in some of the most competitive tournaments.  Coach Fredericks is joined by Jim McNamara and Mike Mocerino, both talented varsity prep coaches in the region.  It is a strong staff to lead this important developmental phase of Ruffnecks Baseball.
