Young Bucs Making Their Mark

The 2017 edition of the South Dade High School baseball team has a totally new look from last year’s squad. The 2016 team graduated twelve seniors, ten of which went on to play at the college level this year. Not only did the team have to completely retool, but legendary Head Coach Fred Burnside retired from coaching at the beginning of the school year. Burnside, who coached for 47 years, ended his career with 506 wins and the 2014 Class 8A State Championship with South Dade. During his career, Burnside sent hundreds of players to college as well as pro ball, including the new coach at South Dade, Rene Ruiz. Ruiz, is a 2002 graduate of Miami Southridge High School, where Burnside was coaching at the time. He played college baseball at Florida Gulf Coast and Manhattan College. Ruiz went on to play in the minor leagues, but when he was done playing, he returned to Manhattan College in 2010 as the Recruiting Coordinator and Assistant Coach. Seeking warmer weather and to be closer to his family, Coach Ruiz returned to South Florida and joined the Buccaneer baseball staff in 2016.
