OTTAWA – Baseball Canada unveils its new-look website to the public today, revealing a clean and user-friendly version that will enhance the portfolio of the organization while offering readers more complete knowledge of Baseball Canada’s national teams and development programs.
“We felt it was time for a new design of the Baseball Canada website and we hope this will allow us to provide our consumers with a more interactive, picture friendly, information resource of baseball in Canada,” says Jim Baba, Director General of Baseball Canada. “As we continue to move the sport forward with innovative programs, we must keep up with ongoing changes in an attempt to accomplish that goal.”
The website was designed by Adam Debray of BallCharts.com, a Richmond, British Columbia web design company that specializes in personalized sports websites. The web address will remain the same at www.baseball.ca.
Visitors to the site will be able to check out a brand new home page with photo news links and several other interesting links such as news on the junior, senior and women’s national teams, information on all Baseball Canada championship events and alumni, as well as material detailing umpiring and coaching tips.
The revamped site, offered in both French and English, is available just as some of the national teams prepare for a busy summer.
The World Baseball Classic is first on Baseball Canada’s schedule as the team will report to Dunedin, Florida on March 1st prior to making their way to Toronto for their first game of the tournament against the United States on March 7th at the Rogers Centre. The final 28-man roster will be announced by Major League Baseball on February 24th.
Then, the Junior National Team will be competing in their annual Spring Training and Dominican Summer League camps as well as a summer tour. The Women’s National Team will also be competing on the international stage this summer and it all concludes with the Senior National Team as they will take on the world at the XXXVIII IBAF World Cup of Baseball, which will be held in countries all over Europe from September 9th-27th.
