    I saw on the Div.2 World Series web site where a ABCA/Rawlings Gold Glove Team was anounced at the national level for the 2009 season. I’ve also seen several other Regions (Atlantic, Southeast, ect.) thru-out the country announce “Regional Gold Glove Teams” but can’t seam to find anything listed for the Central region. Since the NSIC is part out the Central Region I was hopeing someone on this site might be able to share that info.

    Couldn’t find it either – not sure it exists for each region.

      UCSD had 5 Regional Gold Glove winners in the West Region. That Makes 3 Regions total that I’ve found so far. Can’t imagine why the other 5 regions wouldn’t follow suit. I’ll check back with an update soon.

        Lynn University if Flordia had 2 Gold Glove winners in the South Region. That makes 4 out of 8 Regions so far.

    Abilene Christian had the Gold Glove 2ed baseman in the South Central Region. He went on to win the national award.That’s 5 out of 8 regions nationaly.

    Found 2 more kids from Ashland College picked as regional Gold Glove winners in the Mid-West Region one of which went on to win a National Award. That’s 6 out of 8 Regions accounted for. What’s up with the Central Region? Why can’t I find anyone from this area nominated for this award?

      Sorry Luke but the link you have here is to The NCBWA Central Region Team not the ACBA/Rawlings Gold Glove Team. This award is given out based on defensive abilities unlike most other awards that rely more heavaly on offensive stats. Players for this award were supposedly picked as the Gold Glove team for each region then they were nominated for the National Award. The national award winners are listed on the World Series Web site on Mount Olives baseball page. I’ve located 6 of 8 Gold Glove Regional teams but can’t seam to find the Central one yet. Thanks for trying though.

    This is because it gives you more precise targeting opportunities, lets you combine audio ads with synchronized banners and buttons to
    maximize visibility and retain attention, lets your listeners take an immediate action (after
    all, they are only a click away from your site) and puts you in control of your advertising campaign (you can
    pay the service provider on the basis of the actual number of impressions).
    “It’s hard to believe, ” says Randy Gilbert, host of “The Inside Success Secrets Radio Show”-an Internet radio broadcast which has been “airing” for several years.
    The banner ad may be placed on the same page listeners go to when they want to listen to the station on-line.

    This method of fishing also has a by-catch of non-target species such as sharks, dolphins, turtles, and other non-target fish species.
    Never dawned on me that they might want to try it, so I was surprised one day in the late-eighties when my son called and said they wanted to go fishing.
    One can find another 2 options as to wholesale fishing rod, which might be hollow-tip rods and reels and spliced-tip

    So now you can listen to any music from any where non-stop and
    cost free. “It’s hard to believe, ” says Randy Gilbert, host of “The
    Inside Success Secrets Radio Show”-an Internet radio broadcast which has been “airing” for several years.
    Most stations will give you names of their more popular hosts and ask you to talk with them.

    You don’t need to take my word for this, you can read the reviews for yourself. Fujifilm has been one of the masters of digital cameras and its specialty is their connectivity with their customers and their awareness of change in demand with the changing trends and upcoming technology. Some cameras are simple point and shoot while others have many different modes for taking pictures.

    You don’t have to hit the gym for two and three hours each day to lose weight, but it does help to squeeze in 30 minutes of physical activity each day. Anyone who dares to make a closer inspection will find the underlying difference. Then leave it a while until your tummy lets you know that you’re hungry again before opting for a healthy

    I have interviewed a few parents to attempt to understand what their true objection is
    with their child playing video games. It is an adventurous
    game filled with fun and excitement. Moreover, there you could also play Scrabble
    in the internet, TV game shows or game consoles.

    You don’t have to hit the gym for two and three hours each day to lose weight, but it does help to squeeze in 30 minutes of physical activity each day. Vinson had participants keep their normal diet and exercise routines (or lack thereof) and merely added the green coffee. Expect to lose all that extra flabbiness as you melt off all your unwanted fat.

    Too many folks have already thrown away plenty of good money on nothing but useless salt tablets
    being shipped from South America. Cucumber contains sterols
    which can help to lower cholesterol and prevent carbohydrates from converting to body fat.
    Expect to lose all that extra flabbiness as you melt
    off all your unwanted fat.
