Just this past weekend Schade, TQ, and I attended the American Baseball Coaches Show in Dallas. Coaches of all levels attend this show to see the latest and greatest in baseball equipment. This is the second ABCA show that I've attended and the best one yet! It was a great show, we demoed our products, got great feedback from coaches, and solidified SKLZ's position as the leader in baseball training aids.
The Lightning Bolt Pitching Machine was definitely the hit of the show:
It was so hot it set the fire alarms off. For real, the building was evacuated!! The coaches couldn't believe how quick and accurate the Bolt Balls were coming out of the pitching machine. For those coaches that were able to lay down a bunt with the Live Wire training bat congratulations!!!! There weren't many of you.

We made a lot of good contacts, Lisa with US Baseball Academy and Austin with Perfect Game to name a couple. Looking forward to working with them in 2010. The only regret I have is not going to Javier's for dinner one night. I was real jealous to hear about how good it was from Oscar and the rest of the Stats crew.
Thank you to Betty and the whole ABCA staff for a great show.
