The ABCA Board of Directors voted in June to name Inside Pitch Magazine the Official Magazine of the American Baseball Coaches Association. With the move, all 2015-16 ABCA members will receive a free subscription to the magazine starting with the fall issue, which will be mailed with the October edition of Covering All Bases.
“This is a great magazine that our Board of Directors voted to put the ABCA name on,” said ABCA Executive Director Craig Keilitz. “In addition, the free subscription is another great benefit that our members have asked for and we were able to deliver. We are extremely excited about this enhanced partnership.”
In a survey conducted to ABCA members in May, 78 percent of respondents indicated they were interested in receiving Inside Pitchin the mail as part of their membership.
With the partnership, Inside Pitch will continue to feature subjects of interest to ABCA coaches, and members will have a greater opportunity to be featured in the magazine.
ABCA members who have attended the convention in recent years are already familiar with the magazine, as it was distributed free in the convention packets.
Members were given free access to the Inside Pitch app with the ability to read several issues this past spring. Members will continue to have free access to the Inside Pitch app, which features full issue content plus extras. Details about the app will be emailed periodically.
