Dickie Bachmann to grace PBA Press Corps Awards Night

A former long-time member of the PBA family, who is now one of the country’s top sports officials, will serve as the guest of honor during the PBA Press Corps (PBAPC) 2023 Annual Awards Night on Nov. 20 at Novotel Manila Araneta City.

Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) Chairman Richard Bachmann will be the keynote speaker during the formal affair, where the top performers of the league’s Season 47 will be honored by the men and women regularly covering the PBA beat.

Bachmann, who once served as a board of governor and team manager of the fabled Alaska franchise, where he also played from 1993 to 1999 under coach Tim Cone, was part of the team’s eight championships, including the 1996 grand slam.

Previously, the son of the late national team player Kurt Bachmann was the assistant team manager of Converge FiberXers and chairman of the PBA 3×3 before his appointment as the head of the country’s government sports agency last year.
