Kansas head baseball coach Ritch Price along with Jayhawk assistants Ryan Graves and John Szefc will be guest speakers at the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)’s 2009 Convention in San Diego, Calif. this weekend.

The trio of Kansas coaches will speak Saturday afternoon at the convention, which begins today and runs through Sunday. Price will address defensive drills, while Graves will speak on pitching. Szefc will speak to the group about short-game offense and baserunning.
