Steve Farley, now in his 22nd season at Butler, has been selected to speak at the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) national convention in Chicago.
Farley's presentation will be on defensive play in the outfield. Nearly 5,000 coaches from across the nation will be in attendance. Farley received the ABCA's Ethics in Coaching Award at the 2010 national convention held in Nashville, Tenn.
"Our players and our coaching staff are excited about the upcoming A-10 season. It's a real honor to be asked to speak at the ABCA convention and I look forward to representing Butler University," Farley said.
The ABCA convention will be held January 3-6 at the Chicago Hyatt Regency on Wacker Drive.
