This year's Fan Fest will be the best ever for the Atlanta Braves. They are moving it from Turner Field to the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
I am honored to host the Baseball Players Conference, which will be held in the Sydney Marcus Auditorium, Hall A, during the Fan Fest.
This conference is for parents and players that are interested in playing the game of baseball at a higher level. Here are just some of the issues we will discuss during the two-day conference:
How do you get to the next level?
How do you navigate the recruitment process?
What skills are coaches really looking for
Do video services work?
Are showcases important?
There will be presentations and roundtable discussions on a variety of issues. Click HERE for additional information, including a list of the speakers.

So join us next week at the Georgia World Congress Center for the Braves Fan Fest and the Baseball Players Conference.
