Driveline Baseball and the ABCA announce partnership extension.The American Baseball Coaches Association announced today that Driveline Baseball, one of the premier data-driven baseball player development organizations in the world, has renewed its partnership with the ABCA as a Triple Partner.

"We are excited to continue what has been an outstanding partnership with Driveline, not only for our association but for the game of baseball,” said ABCA Executive Director Craig Keilitz. “Their support of the Convention Scholarship Program has allowed the ABCA to provide quality coaching education to a number of coaches who otherwise would not be able to experience all that our annual Convention has to offer and is a testament to their commitment to helping coaches develop better players through education."

As part of their agreement, Driveline will serve as the presenting sponsor of the ABCA Convention Scholarship Program. This program, which Driveline has sponsored each year since 2018, will provide a scholarship stipend to current ABCA members that will cover convention registration fees and lodging at the 2022 ABCA Convention in Chicago. More details about the Scholarship Program will be released this fall.

In addition, Driveline, who presented at the 2021 ABCA Virtual Convention Expo Theater, will again be a featured presenter on the Expo Theater stage at the 2022 ABCA Convention in Chicago.

"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.

Driveline will offer current ABCA members access to a $25 discount to DrivelinePLUS, a one-stop shop to learn how to apply advanced player development concepts in your practice + 10% off (or more) on Driveline gear.

The 2018 and 2019 NCAA Div. I national champions used Driveline's products and protocols to help develop their players, along with playoff-caliber teams at every level of amateur baseball.
