Seniors Schedule & Results

2017 Seniors Geared for National Stage

The 2017 season provides an opportunity for Ruffnecks “Seniors” to challenge themselves in a team context.  Ruffnecks “Seniors” are defined as players in the class of 2018, and a few age-eligible 2017’s.  The Ruffnecks continue to be a program that draws attention from college recruiters, and the roster for 2107 features talent that will undoubtedly be of interest to a variety of schools at the next level.  The schedule is demanding in terms of both its volume and the quality of events.  Our schedule requires considerable travel, which in turn demands players prepare and maintain themselves for the rigors of the road.

Head Coach John Toffey returns for a third season to lead the Ruffnecks Seniors.  The schedule features a sixteen day road trip to Nashville and Georgia that provides exposure in some of the most competitive summer baseball in the United States.  In the Music City Classic the Ruffnecks play games at Lipscomb University, Vanderbilt, and Belmont University.  The Nashville event begins the 16 day road trip during which the team may play as many as 18-20 games.  The schedule also includes play in the Perfect Game Elite Round Robin and the 17U Perfect Game WWBA.  Not all of the competition is on the road.  The Ruffnecks have traditionally hosted the Boston Invitational. The addition (last year) of The Boston Open creates one of the most demanding and competitive weeks of baseball in the New England region. The Boston Invitational continues to be one of the most highly recruited events in the Northeast. The Ruffnecks round out the season at the Blue Chips Prospects Invitational at Diamond Nation in Flemington, NJ July 31 – August 3.
