Each January, the ABCA hosts the largest baseball convention in the world. Approximately 4,000 coaches attend the convention, which is held at various locations around the country. It is four days of non-stop baseball. Normally, on the opening afternoon of the convention, all the committees meet to discuss their issues. There are 19 such committees not counting the Board, Executive Committee or the Standing Committee. The evening of the first day of the convention is reserved for all the Divisional Business meetings. Actions taken at all these meetings are taken to the Executive Committee.
Make plans now to attend our 2014 Dallas convention to be held January 2-5, 2014 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.
Hall of Fame/Coach of the Year Banquet
Each convention the ABCA hosts a Banquet sponsored by Diamond, to honor the Lefty Gomez Award winner, Hall of Fame Inductees and Regional and National Coaches of the Year.
