The Midwest Roofing Contractors Association (MRCA) and Roofing Contractors Association of Texas (RCAT) revealed its keynote speaker will hit it out of the park at the associations’ 2022 conference.

Jeffrey Frye, a former Major League Baseball (MLB) second baseman, will be the keynote presenter at the 2022 MRCA/RCAT Conference held Sept. 27-29 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas. Frye played for the Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox, Colorado Rockies and Toronto Blue Jays for all or part of eight seasons between 1992 and 2001.Jeffrey Frye.jpg

Frye began his MLB career when the Rangers drafted him in 1988 and he debuted in 1992. He signed on as a free agent to the Red Sox in 1996 before being traded four years later to the Colorado Rockies. In 2000, he signed as a free agent with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Among his career highlights includes making history on Aug. 17, 2001 when he became the second Blue Jay ever to “hit for the cycle” — which is when a batter hits a single, double, triple and home run in the same game. These have only occurred about 340 times in MLB history.

Frye’s last appearance in the MLB came on Sept. 20, 2001, and he has since become a player agent after retiring, representing players like Darren Oliver and Ian Kinsler.

The keynote presentation will take place 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. on Sept. 28 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas. The conference includes an expo floor featuring manufacturers and suppliers of all sizes, educational sessions, specialty training for CERTA, and special events like golf tournaments, a welcome reception and more for fun and networking opportunities.
