2018 Be the Best Coaches’ Convention | Softball, Jan 18-20 | Baseball, Jan 25-27 | Crowne Plaza Cherry Hill

Hall of Fame

Over the past 44 years, we’ve had our share of outstanding baseball and softball speakers at Be the Best. And sometimes, they go above and beyond.

In 2002, we created a Hall of Fame to celebrate those special speakers who made a difference.
