Message from the President.
More than 3000 baseball coaches from all over the globe are expected to roll into San Antonio for four days of the finest baseball teaching to be found anywhere.
The ABCA Convention should be a priority for every baseball coach in America. Not only has ABCA Second Vice-President Irish O'Reilly assembled a group of the finest clinicians in the game, but there will also be nearly 300 vendors on hand to display the latest and most innovative baseball equipment.
The convention begins on January 2 with the annual business meetings that will enable every coach to become more involved in the work of the ABCA. Every coach at the convention will also be invited to attend the Hall of Fame/Coach of the Year Banquet and the Honors Luncheon. I urge everyone to take this opportunity to join the ABCA in honoring the people who have contributed significantly to the game we love.
For the past several years, my wife has been accompanying me to the ABCA Conventions and she now looks forward to them as much as I do. She has met some wonderful coaches' wives, and they all have a good time at the special reception and breakfast for spouses. Would you believe the ABCA Convention could improve your marriage? Try it!
One thing is certain. If you miss the ABCA Convention, it will definitely be your first loss of the season. So let's all go to bat in San Antonio and start the 2004 season as winners!
