    Former Clinic Participant Testimonial:

    "I played for the New England Ruffnecks as a 16U in the summer of 2009, and I had an outstanding experience. I participated in the first Ruffnecks-hosted Rich Gedman Catcher's Clinic, and I loved every minute of it. It made me love the position even more than I love the sport--which is saying a lot. Since my high school and college teams did not have a catching coach, I had to be my own catching coach. The Gedman clinic gave me the base & tools I needed to do that."
    -Robbie Wallace, Former New England Ruffneck
