Ruffnecks clinics are prioritized for current Ruffnecks.  They are optional.  Clinics provide opportunities to experience intensive, instructional, sessions with Professional scouts, and some college coaches who work hands-on with hitters in small station work.  Drill work is based on professional routines.

Pro Scout Hitting Clinic sessions are blocked for 90 minutes.  Activity is focused on station work and high repetitions.  Players may develop blisters if their hands are not already calloused.  Specific details of the clinic follow:
