Schooners manager Phil Orbe to speak at Convention, held Jan. 15-17
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – The New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) is pleased to announce its plans to participate in the 2015 Mohegan Sun World Baseball Coaches’ Convention, held Jan. 15-17, 2015, at the Mohegan Sun Convention Center in Ucasville, Connecticut.
The New England League will join a blockbuster lineup of presenters during the three-day event and will add its presence to the exhibit hall with a special league-specific booth for all in attendance.
Mystic Schooners manager Phil Orbe is scheduled to speak at the convention. Entering his fourth season with the Schooners, Orbe has helped transform Mystic into one of the steadiest franchises in the league in terms of on-field performance. He orchestrated one of the league’s best-ever season-to-season turnarounds from 2012 to 2013, as the Schooners won 12 more games the following summer. Mystic has qualified for the postseason in back-to-back seasons, and Orbe helped five Schooners earn all-league recognition and coached the league’s batting champion this past summer, while 12 of his former players have been drafted by Major League Baseball (MLB) franchises.The rest of the article can be read here.
