Seniors Schedule & Results

2020 Seniors Ready Themselves for Summer

Coach Gomes & 2019 Senior Pitching Staff

In this rapidly changing environment, the Ruffnecks “Senior” class readies itself for a summer with new challenges.  With high school seasons cancelled, we are monitoring events carefully.  Ruffnecks “Seniors” are defined as players in the class of 2021, and a few 2022’s.  The 2020 schedule for the Ruffnecks Seniors is a challenging one.  The objective is to provide exposure in the best, most effective events for our players.  Fortunately, Ruffnecks teams are invited to many of the top events in the United States.  Even though we cannot attend every event, the Ruffnecks schedule reflects a commitment to get the team in front of college recruiters.

Development remains primary objective for the Seniors.  The team often practices on the road while traveling. The schedule features both volume and quality.  We play in competitive events.  Our schedule requires considerable travel, which in turn demands players prepare and maintain themselves for the rigors of the road.  We create an experience as much like college baseball as possible.

Head Coach John Toffey returns for a sixth season to lead the Ruffnecks Seniors.  He is joined by John Brickley, Brendan Casey, and pitching coach Ace Adams who has 30 years experience in professional baseball.  While travel has been disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Ruffnecks customarily participate in the Music City Classic where they play games at Lipscomb University, Vanderbilt, and Belmont University.  The Nashville event is a mainstay of the Senior season.  The schedule also includes play in the 17U Perfect Game WWBA.  During the summer of 2020 the Ruffnecks will have to focus much of their schedule in August around the NEBC and in the region.
