The CON6 2021 Baseball and Softball Convention is truly an international event with Zoom online sessions available in both Italian and English languages from March 16-20, 2021. Federazione Italiana Baseball Softball (FIBS) President Andrea Marcon and European Softball Federation (ESF) President Gabriel Waage conceived of the newly-developed European Edition of the CON6 Baseball and Softball Convention so that the audience and reach of the online sessions would grow exponentially.
In order to safely allow enough time for the preparation and recording of presentations during the current pandemic, the CON6 Baseball and Softball Convention is taking place a little later in the year than usual, but it will certainly be worth the wait. Team Italy manager and National Baseball Hall of Famer Mike Piazza returns as the main attraction after appearing at last year’s CON6 in Rimini. Los Angeles Angels manager Joe Maddon along with MLB Network/Fox Sports reporter Jon Morosi appear courtesy of the Italian American Baseball Foundation. Baseball expert Eugene Bleecker of the 108 Performance Academy and Just Softball innovators Deb Hartwig and Susie Parra deliver outstanding presentations. Other highlights include National Softball Coaches Association Hall of Famer and current UC Riverside coach Cindy Bristow, WBSC umpire Lisa Turbit, German Umpiring Director Christian Posny, international softball umpire Nacho Pardo, from Spain, as well as the Dutch scorer Dennis Duin and Gil Reyes from Venezuela who will serve as CNC guest speaker.
The complete lineup and registration details for the 2021 CON6 Baseball and Softball Convention will be published shortly. All programs will be free of charge and of specific interest for athletes, managers, and sports medicine professionals. Forza #Italia!
