Back from Nashville - a report...

What a cool city! We just returned back from the ABCA Conference at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel (which is a city in and of itself). It was a great opportunity to meet with some of the top coaches in the country (which lends itself to a more efficient recruiting process - I learned more this year in terms of the schedule top programs keep in placing their players), to meet with other top leagues around the country and learn just from meeting people and having a ton of one-off conversations how to improve our product both on and off the field. Plus, we enjoyed a great night with the Sweets crew out at Jack's BBQ a great hole-in-the-wall BBQ joint on Broadway (downtown) then spent the evening rocking out at Tootsies and The Stage on Broadway in true Nash-Vegas style. Don't be surprised if the Sweets brand shows up on a CMT special in the near future (no reason that it would, I'm just saying don't be surprised!!) One take-away from this week was the overall health of the summer collegiate game - in legitimate leagues - is strong. It is a future of baseball that is exciting and very much what minor league baseball must have been like 30-35 years ago.

A quick "Thank You" to all the Expos fans that are now following our Tweets and this blog. A place and a team that have such a special place in my heart - and I am excited that we are bringing Sweets joy to our friends in la Belle Provence.
