Message From Tim Saunders
NHSBCA Executive Director
This Thanksgiving, we want to share our genuine appreciation to you and your staff that perpetuate your love of baseball to our young men and women. Without you, we would not be where we are today, and we're so thankful for all of your support throughout the year.
We are also thankful for the opportunity to serve you and high school baseball this past year. I've genuinely enjoyed working each day, as do you, to make the game we love better. We wanted to share our heartfelt appreciation to you, as a coach for all the things you do for kids day in and day out. You make a difference, and we are thankful for your efforts.
Thank you all for being wonderful and supportive members, and for all, you do to support high school baseball. We value our relationship and look forward to the opportunity to continue serving you and baseball.
To all our NHSBCA executive committee members, NHSBCA ranking committee members, NHSBCA All American committee members. State Association Leadership administrative team members, and all our sponsors and partners, we're so thankful for all you've done for our NHSBCA this year.

Have a wonderful holiday with your family and loved ones. We can't wait to see you at the NHSBCA Convention on December 5th in Columbus.
In Baseball, Tim.
