Rising 15U Ruffnecks Bench Summer 2020

The 15U Ruffnecks season is regarded as the year in which players jump from “Kid’s Baseball” to “Men’s Baseball.”  Some of the 15U Ruffnecks enter the summer with varsity high school experience garnered from the spring season.  It is this experience, playing against 16, 17, and even 18 year old competition, that makes this year such a significant leap.  Other 15U players do not have varsity experience.  For them there is a greater adjustment to the speed of Ruffnecks summer baseball at the 15U to 17U level.  The schedule begins in mid-June.  Since we are still affected by the impact of Covid 19 on high school schedules, the program will commence “Pre-Season” training on June 8th at the NEBC.  These are designed to be daily workouts to include batting practice, skill work, and to recalibrate pitching arms for the busy summer.  The 15U team is challenged early with competition in events such as the 17U PG Super25 and the 16U PG Super25.  Indeed, most of the tournaments are against older competition.  This 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 2021 edition of the 15U Ruffnecks features a group of talented players.  Roles become more defined, with pitchers focusing on pitching and positional players (especially infielders) concentrating on the faster tempo of the game against older competition.  The 15U season is highly instructive, challenging, and physically demanding.  We play almost every day in a schedule that transitions quickly from one tournament event to the next.  Seldom are there days off in between.  Most of the activity is in the New England Region with a commitment to the most challenging events hosted at the NEBC.  In 2021 we will challenge the 15U Ruffnecks with a trip to Georgia for the 16U Perfect Game WWBA.

The Ruffnecks’ home, the New England Baseball Complex, provides game and practice facilities that are unmatched in the region.  With field reliability and the certainty that comes with playing on a synthetic surface, the 15U Ruffnecks conduct practices and games in a predictable and professional environment.

Schedule Updated April 29, 2021 at 1:18 pm

The 2021 Ruffnecks 15U schedule is designed to challenge players in both quantity and quality of competitive baseball.  The schedule pushes the limits for young high school athletes, some of whom have varsity HS experience from the spring, and others who do not.  Over a period of 9 weeks, from mid-June to the first week of August, the team is set to play as many as 50 games.  It is an “every day” schedule that tests the stamina and durability of players.  Much of the focus is on events at the NEBC where the 15U squad most often participates in events at the 16U and 17U level.  Eyes are on the evolving guidelines for Covid safety protocols, vaccinations, and the ability to get back to “normal” in 2021.  The 15U schedule is designed to ensure that there is plenty of baseball.  The NEBC provides the backdrop for much of the activity.

16U Music City trip is still under consideration, with a possible combined 15U/16U roster.  Those not traveling will participate in the 16U PG25 Super Regional.
