16U/20’s Schedule & Results

2018 Expands Competitive Boundaries

Coach Kirk Fredericks

There is no question that the schedule for the 16U/2020 grads presents challenges to players’ durability, stamina, and abilities.  The boundaries of the competitive schedule expand in 2018.

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.  For the first time in 2018, the squad will attend the highly regarded Black Bear Classic in Greenville, South Carolina.  Games will be played at Furman, Wofford, Clemson, and surrounding fields.  The Rufffnecks accepted an invitation to this competitive event, which will certainly test the abilities of the squad early in the summer season.  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 first-ever Boston College Team Invitational, among others.  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 2020 graduates with several 2019 grads as well.  The team returns strong starting pitching and a solid offensive lineup.  Several strong additions to the pitching staff should provide an opportunity for the team to be a contender in 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.
