ABCA Regular Season Conference Championship Awards

2019 Conference ChampionsEach year, the American Baseball Coaches Association recognizes the regular season conference champions from eight divisions of collegiate baseball.

The 2019 recipients were honored at the 76th Annual ABCA Convention in Nashville. Head coaches who were in attendance at the 2020 Convention were presented a custom co-branded ABCA/Terryberry award during their 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.
