Looking to Summer 2024

The 15U Ruffnecks experience is among the most challenging in our five year program.  The 15U year takes player development and tournament activity to a level comparable to Ruffnecks teams at 16U and 17U.  Summer is an “every day” baseball experience in which endurance, teamwork, pitching, travel, and overall commitment to baseball define the season. The 15U Ruffnecks play an intensive, two-month schedule from June through the first week in August, primarily against older competition.

The 2024 team features a mix of players in the classes of 2026 and 2027. History suggests that approximately two-thirds of the roster will enter the season with varsity high school experience under their belts.  The pitching staff projects to be deep and balanced with both left handers and righties.  Sam Carbeau, Alistair Cooper, Angus McKenna, Leo Sacerdote, and Grady Walsh lead the returning hurlers.  They are joined by new righties Luke Hoganson and Jackson Shusda.  The 15U roster has four lefties on the staff to face our opponents.  Matthew Howell, Kaden McNeice, Nick O’Neil, and Albin Valdez bring experience to the staff.  The 15U class has been impressive.  The infield is experienced with Devin Constantino, Andrew Palmer, Leo Sacerdote, and Grady Walsh.  Jackson Shusda figures into the mix as a welcome addition.  The infield depth is certainly needed since three of these players also pitch.  The outfield is patrolled by the capable abilities of Albin Valdez, Nick O’Neil, Matt Howell, and Sam Carbeau.  One or two others may transition to the open real estate of the outfield!

Summer begins with “Pre-Season” workouts that start on Monday, June 3rd at the NEBC.  Pre-Season workouts create an opportunity for players who have finished their spring seasons to recalibrate and get preparatory work done with instructive supervision.  The primary objectives are to recharge after a high school season and to prepare for the rigors of a condensed two months of almost every-day baseball.  Workouts include batting practice, skill work, and pitcher side sessions with pitching coordinator Ace Adams.  SCOUT DAY is scheduled for Wednesday, June 12 at the NEBC.  This is the first opportunity for most players on the 15U roster to experience evaluation from Professional Scouts and college recruiters in a true, Scout Day format.  Position players take full rounds of BP.  A Red vs. Blue Game enables players to play in combined rosters with Ruffnecks of all ages and classes.

2024 Schedule Update

The 15U team plays its only 15U event in mid-June at the NEBC.  In late June the 15’s will travel to Nashville for the Music City Classic.  This signals a return to Nashville for the 15’s after a hiatus of 4 years!  It will be a fun trip with challenging baseball.  The middle portion of the schedule includes competition in the 16u Perfect Game New England Championships, The Boston Open, and in the 16/17u Firecracker July 4th Classic. The Ruffnecks also participate in several local events, including a Northeastern Team Camp.  The 15U schedule is in keeping with our goal to set the tempo and the pace of play at (or above) the level of high school or prep varsity baseball experience.  The 15U team joins the 16’s and 17’s at the Tournament of Champions in Cincinnati, Ohio July 31-August 4.  This is a highly competitive event.  It brings all three of the Ruffnecks classes to one location for the final tournament of the 2024 summer season.
