The New TeamSnap 2.0 iPhone App is Available — and Awesome!
(Oct 3rd, 2012)
Over half of our traffic comes from mobile devices, and a significant number of our users interact with TeamSnap almost exclusively from their phones or tablets, so today we’re thrilled to take the wraps off of version 2.0 of our iOS app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Although we’ve added some great things to the app over the last few months, this release gives team managers and coaches much more power to manage their team right from the game or practice.
Why Is Baseball Practice So Boring?
(Mar 21st, 2012)
If you’ve ever watched or been involved with a youth baseball practice that was slower than watching paint dry, you’re not alone. Probably what you witnessed was a youth pitcher, who doesn’t pitch well, throwing to a youth hitter who doesn’t hit very well, with everyone else standing around waiting for something to happen. You have seen it before — the outfielders are sitting down, the shortstop and the 3rd baseman are having a rock fight, the 2nd baseman is playing catch with his glove, and the 1st baseman is drawing pictures in the dirt with his right toe. Meanwhile the coach is trying to explain to the pitcher how to get the ball over the plate, and the assistant coach is trying to explain to the hitter all the reasons why s/he is missing 4 out of 5 pitches.

Season Archiving Just Got Smarter
(Feb 18th, 2010)
We’ve just added a little bit of smarts to our Season Archiving feature (the feature that lets you save all the data from your completed season and start fresh with a new season). We got some feedback that teams often add games or events for a new season before they’re ready to archive, so now you can choose to carry over some of your games and events instead of all or none. You pick the first game for the new season and it will carry over to your new TeamSnap season; the games before that go into the archive.
