Looking for a few good Volunteer Interns
The Senior League Softball World Series could use your talents.
This year we will be playing 27 games August 4-10th, (along with 27 more games on the Big League Softball side) Both finals will be on ESPN.
We need several volunteer interns to work with Social Media, our Webcasting project, and with the Sponsor Development (marketing) people.
The Web casting Internship is primarily an opportunity to do television play by play, as many as 3 games a day for the week working with our PPV provider. This position also will allow contact and possibly working with the ESPN production crew that broadcasts the final games.
Social Media Internship involves tweeting the games as they progress and writing a post game wrap-up of each game for our website and possibly for outside media (acting as a stringer - this might get you money). The position also allows for a byline - and providing assistance to the ESPN crew during their presence in the park.
Sponsor Development involves working with the tournament director and our marketing people, providing assistance to them, and a working in sponsor relations. This is a great opportunity to work with the upper management of a major sporting event.
The World Series also could use additional photographers, altho we may ask the Social Media interns who have that ability to also shoot a few pictures.
Send an e-mail to: Media@SeniorSoftballWS.org - let us know what you can do.
Former World Series Manager In the News
Its been a couple of years since Jeff Evans paced the sidelines at the Little League Senior Softball World Series, but that doesn't mean he's not still coaching Softball.
This is the second year Evans has been the head coach of the Cape Henlopen High School softball team. Here's a link to an article about Evans' present team from the local paper. .
Evans coached the Laurel Little League Senior girls for 3 years, 2007-09 and took them to the finals in 2009.
News Coverage of the Big League Softball World Series
Economic Impact of Big League World Series soars
Delaware Secretary of Economic Development Alan Levin had an update to the economic impact of the Little League's two World Series tournaments on Sussex County's economy.
At a press conference in Roxana, Monday, Secty Levin told the meeting that the Big League World Series would be worth an additional 1.3 Million Dollars on top of the 1.2 million already realized from the Senior League World Series.
The final total impact of the World Series on Sussex County could be in excess of 2.5 million dollars.
Two World Series' in Roxana for 2013
The Executive Committee of the Little League International Board of Directors has approved relocating the Big League Softball World Series tournament to Sussex County, Del.
Currently, the Lower Sussex Little League Complex in Sussex County, Del., is host to the Senior League Softball World Series. Beginning with the 2013 season the Senior League Softball and Big League Softball World Series tournaments will share the facility and be played simultaneously, during the week of Aug. 4-10.
“The move to Delaware is a direct result of stellar leadership displayed by Senior League Softball World Series Director Martin Donovan and his tournament staff,” Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive of Little League Baseball and Softball, said. “For the past 10 years, Lower Sussex has shown to be a wonderful host for the Senior League tournament. To move a second World Series to Sussex County made the best sense for our organization and the Big League Softball World Series. We are comfortable and confident that the local tournament committee will transition well into operating concurrent tournaments.”
