The American Baseball Coaches Association is pleased to welcome Driveline Baseball as one of its newest official partners. Driveline Baseball, who will join the ABCA as a Double Partner, has been using data-driven methodologies to train baseball players since 2008.
“We look forward to beginning our new partnership with Driveline Baseball,” said ABCA Executive Director Craig Keilitz. “Their organization remains on the cutting edge of baseball training and is constantly gathering and sharing data to help assist coaches and develop players. Driveline’s presence at the last several ABCA Conventions and the exciting new benefits they are offering our members showcases their passion for educating coaches.”
As part of their partnership, Driveline will provide monthly featured content in the ABCA Press Box e-newsletter that is sent to all current ABCA members. Current members will also have access to a $50 discount on any of Driveline's popular pitching or hitting training programs.
Driveline will also give two presentations at the 2019 ABCA Convention Expo Theater, and will become the presenting sponsor of the ABCA Convention Scholarship Program. This program will provide a scholarship stipend to current ABCA members that will cover Convention registration fees and lodging. More details about the Scholarship Program will be released this fall.
"I am excited to partner with an organization so committed to learning and sharing. Finding and providing data-driven player development solutions has been the heart of our business, and it's our responsibility to continue to learn, share and grow the game," said Driveline CEO Mike Rathwell.
In 2018, both the NCAA Division I and II National Champions used Driveline's products and protocols to help develop their players.
Driveline is committed to providing usable, scalable solutions for coaches of all levels and budgets. They continuously study the game and openly publish their data in peer-reviewed journals and on their blog.
