Over 6,000 coaches and speakers met in Dallas, TX to attend the 75th annual American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Convention this past January. We are proud to say that the Houston Warriors coaching staff were part of that crowd!
At Warriors Baseball Academy, as coaches, we dedicate a better part of our time teaching and developing players in the game of baseball. However, we also understand the need to continually develop and learn as instructors so that we can be better leaders, teachers and coaches.
Our coaches had the opportunity to talk shop and shake hands with former big leaguers, coaches and managers. Here are a few pictures:
