Orchard Park, NY, June 03, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- BaseballStatsTracker.com, a provider of web-based baseball statistics tracking for baseball and softball players of all ages and skill levels, announces the launch of its free service for use by little leagues, softball leagues, high school, college, and recreational leagues.
"We are pleased to announce the launch of our free baseball statistic tracking website" said Jim Craw, Lead Developer of the Baseball Stats Tracker package. "My associate Bill and I are both baseball fanatics. We have spent a number of years coaching our sons in Little League and were always frustrated with our inability to easily track and share individual and team statistics with the players and their families."
"There are a bunch of packages available to track statistics, but they're mostly standalone applications that are not conducive to sharing. If they are web-based, they require a purchase of some sort," adds Bill Even, BaseballStatsTracker.com Marketing Director.
"The really great thing about the site is the ability to invite entire leagues and teams to participate," says Craw. "Our revenue comes exclusively from the pay-per-click advertising that is found on most pages. We certainly encourage our users to support our sponsors [by clicking on the ads and purchasing products], but it isn't required to use the site."
"While this tool was originally designed for youth leagues, it is robust and flexible enough to support any level of play--high school, college, tournaments, travel teams, and recreational leagues," says Even. "And whether or not your league or team is using our system, an individual player can create an ID and track his or her own stats over the course of years."
Even adds "It doesn't stop there, though. Jim did a great job incorporating the ability for a coach or commissioner to set up teams or leagues, display season schedules, and track league standings. Commissioners can invite coaches to participate and, in turn, the coaches can invite the players to join via email. Players then track their accomplishments as the season progresses."
In addition to the statistics capabilities of the site, BaseballStatsTracker.com has an e-commerce portion offering various books and baseball training aids. "Our long-term goal is to become the quintessential resource for all things youth baseball," states Even.
"For example, we are thrilled to have a regular column from retired major leaguer and baseball author Jack Perconte," states Craw. "Jack has been working with youth baseball for years since he retired. Who better to offer advice than someone who has 'been there?'"
Even and Craw rely heavily on feedback from users to improve the interface and enhance site functionality. "We are very open and responsive to requests received from our expanding user base. The beauty of the web interface is immediate access to improvements for all users," notes Even.
BaseballStatsTracker.com continues to expand with plans for a user's forum, an umpire's column, and a parent's perspective. "Who knows where we will go from here?" says Craw. "We are only limited by the imagination of our users."
