TC130: Craig Keilitz, ABCA


If you are reading this and you are not a member of the American Baseball Coaches Association then stop reading right now and go register. Do it!

The ABCA is one of the finest industry organizations in the nation. What is offered to baseball coaches for the small investment is incredible. The cherry on top of the sundae, however, is the national convention. As I said during this interview, the first time I attended the ABCA I was told that I would be like a kid in a candy shop. True, true, true! This year it’s in Nashville. I can guarantee you’re going to have a great time.

Our guest today is the executive director of the ABCA, Craig Keilitz. Keilitz is in his second full year at the helm after a successful career in collegiate athletic administration, his last post being at High Point University in North Carolina. In this episode, he talks about what’s going on in baseball at all divisions, the mission of the ABCA, the current state of college baseball, and more.
