ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. --- The University of New Mexico baseball coaching staff has spent the last two days speaking at the Colorado High School Coaching Convention. The Lobo coaches covered topics such as building a solid program, base running, hitting and pitching. The convention was held in Denver, Colo., from January 13-15.

UNM head coach Ray Birmingham spoke on building a program and hitting. Birmingham has been involved in developing five programs that have been nationally ranked and two have been ranked No. 1 in their respective organization.

UNM's Justin Howard led the nation in hitting in 2010. Howard was the sixth individual to lead the nation in batting under Birmingham. UNM led the nation in team batting average in 2009. In 2001, Birmingham led his squad to the NJCAA record with a .438 batting average. Under Birmingham, his teams are averaging 10.7 runs per year over the last 18 years.

Assistant coach Ken Jacome covered pitching, while volunteer assistant Clint Stoy handled base running.

The New Mexico baseball staff has attended numerous coaching conventions throughout the southwest. UNM had made appearances at the Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Colorado coaching conventions this year.
