The goal that was set 3 years ago by the leadership of the NJIBL for a custom built website for the league has come to fruition. With the help of the team at TST Media designers of NGIN, based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota; the NJIBL now has a state of the art website built for the league. Now the NJIBL boasts a premier site for the premier league in the area. With this site also comes a mobile app which can be downloaded on your iPhone or Droid smartphone which will launch before the opening of the season. There will be a free team download or a league download which can be purchased from the respective app stores.
The idea for a custom built site came about after the growing frustration with the cookie cutter league administration services that the kids leagues are using like Eteamz and Leaguelineup that offer limited depth of features and graphics that were offered to the league had basically came too much to deal with anymore. "I think we should do more and leverage the available technology. We need to make the site the digital business card for the league" said league founder Gary Shears. "We always think outside of the box and are a step ahead of the competition when it comes to running the league. We believe that we have done that so far and with this new website and mobile app we continue to push the limits of how much better a men's league can be. I think we do our best to offer the best product and based on our growth we are doing just that".
The new site offers a professional feel and design for a recreational league. Betsy Barron Photography has been contracted to take game photos throughout the season and the league is working with local universities to offer an internship opportunity to communication majors to cover games and events for the website. The league will also begin production of a promotional video that will run on the website throughout the year. Again, leveraging the technology not just to promote the league and keep the members informed but also to offer the extras the recreational baseball player that other leagues don't.
Shears offered, "Hey, the new website and mobile app might not be as good as a $26 magazine subscription but we like it just as much."
