Ok here we go.


BallGameFinder.com is a site designed to help Coaches and Parents find the fields when travelling to out of town games. It is a database that is growing every day that stores the following:
-An aerial photos of the fields with surrounding roads
-If a homepage is available, there is a link available to click on
-A quick link to take you to the google map
-Also a place directly off of each location's profile page to punch in your address and it will take you directly to Google's directions page with an overview of the route and detailed directions.
-*EVERY location has it's own unique ID # that is searchable on the site's main page.

*This may seem like a little thing, but I'm hoping as the site gains in popularity, people will get used to coming to the site and their coach, or the tournament organizer, etc can say the Field ID is TX-JA001 (for example).

Now for a bit of fun for those interested. And I realize it takes a little bit of computer savvy to accomplish this, but I do have a Tutorial set up teach how to submit locations. Why might this be fun? Well, we are having a Contest that you can join in on any time. It will be finalized on March 15, 2010 and prizes are awarded to the top 5 members who submitted the most field locations. The prize money is as follows:

1st Place: Awarded $500.00

2nd Place: Awarded $250.00

3rd Place: Awarded $150.00

4th Place: Awarded $100.00

5th Place: Awarded $50.00


We concentrate only on kids through the age of High School. This is something that has not been focused on and I realized the need for such while struggling at times to find my son's out of town Football games and my other son's out of town Baseball games. Sometimes when I would call the opponent's school(s) prior to me heading that way, they either couldn't tell me which field they were at or they struggled telling me how to get there. I did find on one opponent's school webpage that they had directions to all of their opponent's fields. This sparked my idea!

I hope one day all of you will be able to at least use it as a tool or some of you even to join in the contest. It can pad your pocket and also improve the site.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and thanks Steve and Ripped for your interest

Rick

You bet Rick. I think you have a great idea and wish you the best.

I am going to be adding some locations in the near future.

I was thinking, you probably could hit a few forums with your site

Most forums I see have a "no soliciting" rule. And to think...I'm just trying to help the community Maybe I'll try PM'ing the Admin and tell him, we could do a link exchange or something.

BTW, Thanks Steve for the tips today on the page titles and URL! Those changes are done.
