We recently began recapping the news we broke or offered coverage on, and last week was another busy one in international baseball. Our articles covered everything from the Under-23 European Championship to minor league baseball, and we reached a major milestone with tweet No. 10,000, which we celebrated in a series of tweets and upcoming articles.
We began our series of reviews of the Under-23 European Championship with a look at Upsets and Standings (link).
A day later, our U23 Euros Review profiled the tournament’s most thrilling games (link).
After our comprehensive research on the web influence of national federations through social media (link), we organised every national federation into easy-to-follow Twitter lists divided by federation (link).
Our U23 Euros series continued with a glance at the top hitting performances (link).
We examined the top pitching efforts at Europe’s Under-23 Championship (link).
We celebrated our 10,000th (tweet) with a round of gratitude and by unveiling the projects we have in store:
1) Our brand new Instagram: ExtraInningsUK!
2) Exclusive coverage of #Universiade2017
3) Lots of interviews
4) More research on how national federations use social media for marketing;
5) Features on baseball in Ghana, Zambia, The Bahamas, Cambodia, & more.
6) And finally, later this year, we will be unveiling the result of more than 5 years of research from archives everywhere from Guam to Taiwan: A database with the result of every game ever played by every senior national team on earth, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe.
Our lead writer took in a minor league game between in Kodak, Tenn. between the Tennessee Smokies and the Chattanooga Lookouts, tweeting a series of pictures from the Lookouts (tweet) and Smokies (tweet).
Our U23 Euros reviews continued with an in-depth look at fielding and running at the tournament (link).
We can, by no means, cover all the international baseball news, so make sure you have Baseball de World bookmarked (link) and followed on Twitter, along with CPBL Stats (link and Twitter), Mister Baseball (link and Twitter), Dutch Baseball Hangout (link and Twitter), and Global Baseball News (Twitter).
