The American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA), founded in 1945, is the primary professional organization for baseball coaches at the amateur level. Its nearly 13,000 members represent all 50 states and 25 countries. Since its initial meeting of 27 college baseball coaches in June 1945, Association membership has broadened to include eight divisions: NCAA Division I, II and III, NAIA, NJCAA, Pacific Association Division, High School and Youth.

The ABCA’s resources for members include the ABCA Video Library, Inside Pitch Magazine, the ABCA Podcast, My ABCA mobile app and more! All current members have access to all 500+ full-length ABCA Convention Videos in the video library. Inside Pitch Magazine is mailed to all members six times per year and there is a full digital archive for members, the ABCA Podcast has weekly episodes, and members have access to coaching charts and documents.

The ABCA hosts the world’s largest baseball convention every January. The convention features coaching clinics, trade show, meetings, several awards presentations and honors. Over 7,000 coaches attend the convention, which lasts for four days. The convention is on a rotating schedule around the United States. Upcoming locations include Chicago, Nashville, Dallas, Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas.

At the ABCA Trade Show, over 350 companies fill up over 200,000 square feet of exhibit space with state-of-the-art equipment and products, including coaching aids, apparel, field equipment, pitching machines and software. Many products are displayed for the first time and some items are even raffled off as prizes.
