Fall Baseball provides an opportunity for us to do what we always do: Teach, coach, and play baseball in a developmental format. We use the fall season to welcome new candidates and to allow our returning players to enjoy baseball in a relaxed, yet instructive setting. We limit our Fall activity exclusively to weekends. There are no mid-week practices or obligations… just an opportunity (mostly Sundays) to enjoy baseball in small doses in the unique New England autumn.
The home for Fall Baseball is the New England Baseball Complex (NEBC). The NEBC is a multi-field facility built in 2013 and owned by the founders of the New England Ruffnecks. The NEBC was designed to be a centerpiece for baseball in the New England region. The NEBC enjoys a reputation for fine fields, reliability, and a relaxed atmosphere. Management of the facility was leased to 3Step Sports LLC in 2022. It remains the home for Ruffnecks during fall.
Registration begins continues through the end of August. Registration forms may be sent by mail or by email in pdf format. Reciept of a completed Registration Form holds a place in the Fall Program until we have reached capacity. A registration accompanied by payment by check or money order secures a spot in the program. We do not process payments without notification before depositing. If a registration is submitted and a family seeks confirmation, please contact us at email@example.com or at (781) 400-1959.
13U Ruffnecks Fall Program Details:
The 13U Ruffnecks Fall Program is for rising 13U players… players who have just completed their final spring and summer on the small diamond. While the 13U Fall Program serves as a selection mechanism, it is definitely NOT a “tryout.” Our 13U Fall Baseball Program is a high energy, instructive, developmental program. It is designed to teach and usher players along the transitional path to baseball on the big diamond. It is a valuable experience whether or not a player intends to be a candidate for the Ruffnecks 13U team.
How it Works – Program Plan:
Yes, we use Fall Baseball to buidl our newest class, our 2024 team! The 13U Fall Program is the best entry point to the Ruffnecks program. It is an opportunity to understand and experience what Ruffnecks is all about. And we get to know each other.
The curriculum for 13U Fall Baseball is built around fundamental principles for baseball on the full-sized diamond. Even young players with experience on the big diamond find 13U Ruffnecks Fall Baseball a challenging and valuable developmental opportunity. Drills, positional work, situations, and scrimmages comprise the curriculum. Each week introduces new concepts with continuity. Pitchers benefit from instructional flat ground work, sides sessions, and live opportunities to pitch one-inning stints in our intrasquad games.
Selection to the 2024 13U Ruffnecks Team:
We encourage players who are candidates for the 2024 13U Ruffnecks roster to attend Fall Baseball. We do not hold “tryouts” during the summer or ask families to make hurried decisions. Our process is deliberate and instructive. We communicate with prospective candidates and families and respect that they have choices. We do not recruit. See the website page about the “Selection Process.” As an alternative to “tryouts” for the 13U team we may accommodate serious candidates prior to 13U Fall Baseball in the following manner:
The Ruffnecks program does not field teams younger than 13U. We simply ask aspiring candidates to participate in what we do, what we teach, and how we go about things, even if they are unable to attend every session.
HS Wood Bat Program Details:
The HS Wood Bat Program is designed as a flexible and developmental opportunity for rising 14U and 15U players. We use WOOD BATS ONLY. The schedule provides multiple options for participation each weekend. Players are assigned to one or more sessions based on their personal availability. They are not expected to attend all sessions.
College Prep Program Details:
The College Prep Fall Program is designed to be a competitive opportunity to play Fall Baseball for experienced players. New candidates are welcome. The College Prep schedule provides options for participation each weekend. Players are assigned to one or more sessions based on their availability. They are not expected to attend all sessions. We build weekly rosters for multiple time slots. The rosters are comprised of returning Ruffnecks veteran players, candidates for the Ruffnecks program at the 15U, 16U and 17U levels, and experienced players who simply want to play Fall Baseball.
Ruffnecks Fall Baseball is intended to be compatible with most student-athlete’s fall schedules. The 13U Fall Program is Sundays ONLY, but we work with families with schedule conflicts. Players ages 14U to 18U can participate with flexible scheduling in the High School Wood Bat and College Prep programs. Players have options for playing on Friday (when Friday slots are scheduled), Saturday, or Sunday on a week-to-week basis. We try to accommodate requests. Players may request multiple days/slots (based on availability). All play at least one day per weekend. Rosters are shuffled and posted every week. A few things to note:
