The conference is endorsed by the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers’ Society, Major League Baseball Team Physicians Association and National Athletic Trainers’ Association, and is supported by Major League Baseball. With the endorsement of the conference, PBATS aims to continue with the commitment to provide the athletic training community and athletic training students with the latest information with regard to baseball injuries and prevention.

The winners are:

  • Lauren Powers, Northern Arizona University.

  • Abel Fernandez, Grand Canyon University.

  • Breanna Richards, Auburn University.

  • Samantha Boehm, Weber State University.

  • Daniel Fifer, Franklin College.

  • Kyle Goetting, Stephen F. Austin State University.

The winners were chosen through a random drawing that took place at the 2016 MLB winter meetings in Washington, D.C. PBATS is thrilled to award the qualified applicants with a chance to attend the Baseball Medicine Conference this year in Phoenix, Ariz.

PBATS would like to thank all of the qualified applicants who took the time to apply for the scholarship and everyone who showed interest in the 2017 Baseball Medicine Conference.
