Exhibit Highlights and Shares Stories from Every Little League on Earth
SAN DIEGO, Calif. — June 25, 2013 — ACTIVE Network, Inc. (NYSE:ACTV), the leader in cloud-based Activity and Participant Management™ (APM) solutions, has proudly been the official online league management provider for Little League® Baseball and Softball for 13 years. Celebrating its recent grand re-opening, The World of Little League®: Peter J. McGovern Museum and Official Store, ACTIVE Network is excited to present the ACTIVE Global Connections exhibit, which has already enabled hundreds of visitors to learn about and connect with some of the 7,000-plus local Little League programs around the world. Featuring a unique touch table, museum visitors can send messages – from the home of the annual Little League Baseball® World Series – to any league on Earth.
“It is amazing to reflect that each year, 2.4 million children play Little League Baseball and Softball in more than 7,000 leagues spread around the world,” said Eric McCue, general manager of sports, ACTIVE Network. “For 13 years, ACTIVE has been on the field and in the dugout with coaches and administrators, helping to solve their administrative problems and get back to the game. We’re humbled by the role we play in supporting the next generation of athletes as they discover the magic of our national pastime, and honored to be a part of history, presenting an interactive experience for patrons of The World of Little League to learn and engage with local Little League programs around the globe.”
The ACTIVE Global Connections exhibit presented by ACTIVE Network provides a unique, interactive experience for visitors, enabling them to learn about local Little Leagues around the world and send messages to their league from the home of the annual Little League Baseball World Series. Local league administrators have the opportunity, through ACTIVE Network’s League finder on the eteamz website, to enhance their museum profile on the interactive touch table with a tailored message to museum visitors, details about their league, history, championships, famous players and more.
“When we were designing the new museum, we wanted to find a way for all of our local leagues to be a part of the experience,” said Lance Van Auken, vice president and executive director of The World of Little League “The ACTIVE Network was the perfect partner in this project, and the Global Connections exhibit is sure to become one of the highlights of The World of Little League.”
ACTIVE Network, Sports offers simple, online league management solutions that help ease administrative tasks including player registration, email communications, reporting, and volunteer and donation management – allowing organizers and participants to spend more time on the field.
