50 years in baseball is a satisfying way to spend your life. Dave Keilitz has spent the last 20 as Executive Director of the American Baseball Coaches Association and will oversee his last coaches’ convention in Dallas this coming January. The Michigan native has no regrets as he moves on and assures everyone that he will not pull a Dan Maestri move and pick up the fungo again.
In this episode, Dave talks about some of the issues facing baseball coaches today and tells us a little bit about his playing and coaching days at Central Michigan.

Dave is one of the most outstanding people in or out of baseball I have ever met. He cared enough about an 18yr. old freshman at CMU who wasn’t even a baseball player to let me umpire his fall scrimmages to help him and Dr. Sauter with the CMU baseball program. He became a friend during my time at CMU before and afteer my military service. Not only was he a great player and coach, but a great person. Congratulations to Dave Keilitz for all of his accomplishments.
