"Our district just approved travel during Spring Break last week. We don't typically do things last minute, but I thought it might be worth a shot. During the week of April 4-8, 2022. (I know it's a long shot) You can call/text 502 377-1369 or email. Appreciate your time!"

About TBCA

The growth of baseball in Tennessee is directly attributed to the hard work and dedication of all of you.  We must continue to grow and improve our association. In order to do this, we must get actively involved!

I thought it was important to remind all coaches of the importance of the TBCA.  Since we started in the early 90's, we have become one of the premier coaches' associations in the South.  We have had numerous states use our model to either start their own organization or to reorganize their association.

The purpose of the TBCA is to:

  1. To unify all baseball coaches in the State of Tennessee.
  2. To instill with the coaches a deeper sense of responsibility in developing, maintaining and conducting the game of baseball.
  3. To create an official line of communication with the TSSAA and with college and junior college coaches in Tennessee.
  4. To honor persons and organizations that has done an extraordinary job of promoting baseball in Tennessee.
  5. To maintain a strong contact with local and national organizations of coaches of baseball.
  6. To annually select:
    1. All State baseball teams
    2. a Coach of the Year and Player of the Year in each classification
    3. Mr. Baseball in each classification
    4. to recognize and honor the coaches of state championship teams
    5. to establish and maintain a “Hall of Fame
    6. award 2 scholarships to deserving seniors in each of the 8 regions
    7. to honor any additional person who has significantly influenced baseball in Tennessee
