“Senior” Ruffnecks

2018 Puts Experienced Senior Team to Test

2018 Senior Ruffnecks

The Seniors roster for 2018 is slightly smaller (in numbers) than in the past several years, but it is comprised of an experienced core.  Most of the players are 5-year Ruffnecks.  The pitching staff is led by veteran hurlers Billy Seidl, Jake McOsker, Will Greer, Colin McGrath, and Jackson Emus.  The pitching staff is complemented by the capable catching duo of Danny Cooke and J.P. Olson, both of whom have been with the program since they were 13U.  First year pitching coach, Wayne Gomes, will lead, instruct, and mentor pitchers with his considerable experience and great communication skills.  Mr. Gomes enjoyed a successful Major League career with the Phillies, Giants, and Red Sox.

2018 Lineup Features Talent & Depth

“This is one of the most experienced hitting lineups in several years,” comments Coach Toffey.  UVA commit Evan Sleight leads a lineup that features speed and power.  James Dillon, Jackson Emus, Will Greer, Dante Taylor, all bring power bats to the lineup.  Jack Flynn and Andrew Hass are versatile infielders who handle the bat well.  The outfield is anchored by Evan Sleight and Jake McOsker.  Nick Seeto will undoubtedly contribute at both infield and outfield.  And of course, catchers Olson and Cooke are both solid and dangerous hitters.  This roster is a tight bunch of caring teammates.  They bring a passion for the game and an enjoyment of the Ruffnecks experience to the summer.  The coaching staff is a talented and experienced group of professionals with Coach Toffey, John Brickley (assistant and SAT Prep tutor), Brendan Casey (hitting and bench coach), and Wayne Gomes (pitching).
