ABCA Regular Season Conference Championship Awards

2018 Conference ChampionsEach year, the American Baseball Coaches Association recognizes the regular season conference champions from all nine divisions of collegiate baseball.

In 2018, the ABCA announced that Terryberry, the Official Championship Ring of the ABCA, would also become the Official Sponsor of the ABCA Conference Championship Awards. As the new Official Sponsor of Conference Champions, Terryberry creates a custom co-branded ABCA/Terryberry award for each regular season conference champion. ABCA member coaches who are in attendance at the ABCA Convention are presented their award by a Terryberry representative during each collegiate level division's business meeting.

Terryberry has been handcrafting award rings and recognition jewelry for a century. Family-owned, Terryberry's dedicated experts take pride in every little detail from design to finish. Visit or contact them at (800) 253-0882 to get started today. Current ABCA members receive a 5% discount on orders of 15 or more championship rings from Terryberry.

The American Baseball Coaches Association has a long tradition of recognizing the achievements of baseball coaches and student-athletes. The ABCA/Rawlings All-America Teams are the nation's oldest, founded in 1949, and the ABCA's awards program also includes the ABCA/Rawlings All-Region Awards, the ABCA/Diamond Regional & National Coaches of the Year and several other major awards such as the ABCA Hall of Fame and the Dave Keilitz Ethics in Coaching Award.
