Douglas HS, Florida
The MBCA is pleased to have one of the more exciting young high school coaches in America speak to the association about how to create a championship culture in your program as well as 1st-3rd offense and defenses. His teams are consistently ranked in the top 25 nationally, culminating with a #1 ranking from USA Today in 2008 when he was coaching at American Heritage. One of his players from that championship team was Eric Hosmer, who became the highest-drafted player in Broward County history after he was selected third overall in the 2008 Major League Baseball June Amateur Draft. Coach Fitz-Gerald has successfully built two programs to national prominence – American Heritage and Soneham-Douglas.
