TEMECULA – Over the past two seasons, the Temecula Youth Baseball league (TYB) has gone through some serious transformations that have pretty much made them the “go to” league in the area.
“Our old method of registering players was to set up a table at certain parks during sporting events and sign up people in person. It was nice to meet our members face to face, but it was very time consuming, not only for our volunteer board members, but for the people that handle all the paperwork behind the scenes as well,” said TYB President Shawn Ferris.
Nowadays, the league has managed to incorporate a little bit of old with the new. The amount of time they spend out at local sports parks signing up players has been cut in half because not only have they implemented a brand new state of the art interactive website, but they also have used some of their remaining funds from previous seasons to purchase iPads for the league to make registering in person a more fun experience.
The addition of the iPads was put in place to primarily help the executive board stay in better communication with each other.
“The standard ‘off-the-shelf’ websites that are out there on the market, which are used by most leagues, would simply not be able to deliver the functionality we require,” said TYB Webmaster Rob Rich, who along with Executive Board Members Kevin Rochford and Shawn Ferris, was able to locate and enlist the services of Infinity Arts which is locally owned and operated by Michael Leahy.
“It was import to us to not only find the right website development team who could design, develop, and deliver such a custom site, but to also give back to our community by partnering with a local Temecula company,” explained Rob Rich.
Infinity Arts met both of these requirements for TYB and also provides vital web services to local community organizations such as MYSL, Temecula Rod Run, Western Eagle Foundation, the Wishes for Children Foundation, and the EDC of Southwest California.
