Seniors Schedule & Results

2019 Seniors Geared for National Stage

Coach Gomes & 2019 Senior Pitching Staff

Ruffnecks “Seniors” are defined as players in the class of 2020, and a few 2021’s.  The schedule for the 2019 Seniors is a challenging one.  We have a 16 day road trip to Tennessee and Georgia.  The team returns to several high exposure events at the NEBC before returning to the road for a trip to Alabama and the Perfect Game Elite Championships.  Our schedule continues to be one of the most comprehensive of its kind in meeting the objectives of exposure and development in a team context.  The team often practices on the road while traveling.  The Senior Ruffnecks squad draws considerable attention from college recruiters, and the roster for 2109 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 fifth season to lead the Ruffnecks Seniors.  He is joined by John Brickley, Brendan Casey, and second year pitching coach Wayne Gomes, former MLB pitcher.  The Ruffnecks head to the Music City Classic where they 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 Championships and the 17U Perfect Game WWBA.  Not all of the competition is on the road.  The Ruffnecks have traditionally hosted the Boston Invitational. Immediately following that event is The Boston Open which 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 Senior Ruffnecks schedule is often compared to a summer college wood bat league schedule.
