13U Ruffnecks 2022

13U Ruffnecks Roster from Many Communities in 2022

 

TEAM ROSTER | TEAM SCHEDULE

The 13U Ruffnecks program is a challenge to the most committed of players transitioning to the big diamond.  This does not mean that we select the most “talented” players.  We look for committed ones.  The primary objective is development and preparation.  Our goal is to serve young Ruffnecks who aspire to reach the high school level successfully.  Beyond that, it is difficult to project.  Practices play an important role in the 13U year.  We encourage players to be multi-sport athletes, and during the winter months we expect players to honor their commitments to their “in season” sports and teams.  Off-season Ruffnecks workouts are plentiful, but they come second to other sports.  Once the spring and summer comes, we expect Ruffnecks to be the priority.

The 13U Ruffnecks Challenge

The 13U game schedule is challenging in terms of both volume and quality of competition.  We practice regularly.  There is a cumulative “wear and tear” effect on players at this age.  Accordingly, while the schedule is built to address the capacity of what a 13U player can withstand, we do so in a responsible manner.  “More” is not always more!  Especially when players are vulnerable to overuse injuries.  During late March through May, the schedule features 4-game weekend series and several tournaments.  It also includes opportunities for some 13U players to form a combined roster (with 14U Ruffnecks) in mid-week games against high school JV and Frosh opponents.  Mid-week rosters are built around availability.

Roster Update for 2022

The 13U Ruffnecks 2022 roster is posted.  The roster is populated by players from a wide range of communities throughout the New England Region.  The Ruffnecks are decidedly NOT a “local” team.  The 2022 roster features 3 players from New Hampshire, 3 players from Boston-proper, 1 player from Springfield, 3 players from central Massachusetts, and 4 players from the west suburbs of metro Boston.

Season Highlights

The 13U Ruffnecks season traditionally opens with a 14U tournament in late March.  During April and May the 13U Ruffnecks play a combination of weekend doubleheaders and against some high school and prep freshmen/JV teams.  There are many opportunities for 13U Ruffnecks to play on a combined roster with the 14’s in mid-week activity.  By May the team begins tournament play.  From Memorial Day Weekend to the end of July, the 13U season shifts almost exclusively to tournament baseball.  The 13U Ruffnecks play in many 14U events.  Much of the activity is at the NEBC and in the New England region.  The Ruffnecks’ home, the New England Baseball Complex, provides game and practice facilities that are unmatched.  The Ruffnecks indoor “Facility” in Needham, Massachusetts provides an indoor hitting home exclusively for Ruffnecks.  The 13U Ruffnecks program provides a thoughtful and purposefull approach to baseball for players this age and level of development.  We are competitive, but the primary objective is to get plenty of  experience and learn the game.
