1,000+ Canadians Doing Cool Things, Daily
Canadians in US College Baseball is a news source reporting on 1,000+ Candians rostered or committed to play baseball in US College leagues
(CCCAA, NAIA, NCAA, NJCAA, NWAC).
Reports are published on a scheduled-basis via Twitter on the
account and the cbplayers.com website and includes:
1. Daily News Brief, every morning at 7AM covering all Canadian players
2. Weekly Canada-wide stats highlights, summaries, leaders (every Tuesday in season)
3. Weekly League-specific stats break-outs (NAIA on Wed, NJCAA on Thu, NCAA on Fri)
4. Regular Canadians in Popular Polls feature (Tues, Wed, Thu, Fri)
5. Weekly Top Teams Awards/Updates to praise exceptional schools that excel with Canadians
Promise to Fans (Charter)
Everything starts with the accomplishments of Canadian players and ends with Fans enjoying and discovering
the players, teams and leagues.
1. 100% College focus, not a "one-of-the-things-we-do" / jack-of-all-trades outfit.
2. All the Canadian players on US College teams we can find (with help from Fans!).
3. Pure player news, without promotional baggage and oodles of business partner retweets.
4. Tweets with information in-the-tweet. No click-bait to a subscription banner/cash register.
5. Source attribution, like they teach at good reporting schools. So Fans can dig deeper by going to the orginal source.
We don't steal and pretend it's ours.
6. Friendly, amateur-style (warts and all), not a slick business obligated to promote their brand and satisfy advertisers.
7. Continuous improvements, driven by fans. Your input is valued and acted on.
The "Who Are You Guys?" Question
People send emails and DMs complimenting the "team" and asking "Who are you guys?".
The emails and DM's are great - thanks to all inquirers.
And, I thought I should write an "answer" that I can point to if I get this question in the future.
A short answer is, "Me". My name is Kevin and I prepare reports about the amazing Candians in US College Baseball.
But this answer is misleading and misses the whole point!
A truer answer has many parts, starting with the 1,000+ Canadians without whom there wouldn't be anything to cover.
And, the 1,700+ teams.
And, the many people that have sent hundreds of emails with players, commitments, news items and new ideas.
And, the super group of people and organizations that follow on @CollegeBaseba12 and spread the reports with likes. mentions and retweets.
So, the "Who are you guys?" question is better answered with, "Lots of people!". The players, teams, people giving feedback, ideas, follows, likes, mentions and retweets - all of whom are
enjoying a shared experience in baseball.
Welcome everyone! Please enjoy the achievements of the amazing players, teams and community!
