The MSBL World Series in Arizona is finally here and will begin October 14th and involves 13 different age brackets, including the ever popular Father and Son division. Each division has multiple brackets to even up the skill levels, culminating in almost 40 champions being crowned through November 3rd. So how can a player or other interested MSBL people across the country stay in touch with results, standings, playoffs, news and updates and of course the crowned champions? Relax. We’ve got you covered from all angles.
The home page of the new MSBL website has a banner across the top right now that displays a Marucci bat product. That banner will be replaced on October 15th with a ‘World Series Daily News’ banner (above) that you can click on every day to review the daily newsletter as compiled by tournament director Tom Prendergast. Every score of every game in every division, along with the standings, will be right there for you. Other insightful articles and updates will also be included.
This same ‘Daily News’ newsletter will be downloaded to our MSBL Facebook and Twitter pages every morning at the crack of dawn. (left) I have highlighted those pages for you to store in your phones or computers. The ‘Daily News’ will also be provided as a link on the actual World Series page in the Pointstreak standings section.
As if that isn’t enough, and here’s where it gets really good, we will be emailing out the ‘World Series Daily News’ every single morning to everyone in the MSBL data base! If you currently receive our periodic email newsletters you don’t have to do a thing. You’ll have one emailed to you every morning, automatically. It is being shipped directly to you like your morning newspaper used to be! Just check your email.
Also included within all of these formats will be the ‘Marucci Play of the Day’ as compiled daily by Jeff Lowery at APN Video. You’ll have an opportunity to check out the action from the previous day. (2017 logo on the right) The ‘Play of the Day’ will also be displayed in the middle of our website home page where our current ‘MSBL Promotional Video’ is now located. You can’t miss it!
I think it is safe to say we will keep you updated as never before. Players and visitors alike can see the schedules, results and check what needs to be done to secure a playoff berth as you march toward the trophy. This event is the Super Bowl of the MSBL year and we pledge to do our very best to give you the best seat in the house. Take care, everyone!
