The Fastpitch TV Coverage of the 2014 WCWS By Gary Leland
It is time for Fastpitch TV to show its stuff.
For the last 5 years, or so I have gone to the Women's College World Series. I took some photos, filmed some interviews, and gathered some information.
To be direct, and to the point, that was a terrible way to cover a great event like the Women's College World Series. While The Fastpitch TV Network has more distribution points than any other fastpitch softball media company, I really did not do any serious coverage of it.
I have spent years building The Fastpitch TV network into the number one media network for fastpitch softball on the planet.
I produce five different video shows at Fastpitch.TV which have had over three million views.
The new FastpitchBlog.com is burning up the softball world with blog posts from some of the best softball bloggers in the country.
I have the Fastpitch Magazine, which is the only true e-magazine just for fastpitch softball.
Then there is the Fastpitch Radio Show. which is the oldest, and longest running sports podcast on the planet.
I even have a free photo sharing site at SoftballShots.com.
When it comes to fastpitch softball, I have more distribution possibilities than anyone one else.
This year I am going to take my coverage of the Women's College World Series to the next level. I hope to offer more coverage of the Women's College World Series than anyone has ever offered.
I am going to have a small crew involved in Oklahoma City this year. The crew will consist of a blogger/photo editor, a few bloggers, and myself. We will post daily updates after every game of summaries, and box scores. We will Blog through out the event every day with great information, and stories from the event. I will bring you pre-game, and post-game interviews with coaches, and players. Great guest interviews from other softball greats attending the event. Audio updates from the Fastpitch Radio show. Photo updates from every game, and much, much more.
Yes, this year will be the start of the best coverage in the history of the Women's College World Series by The Fastpitch TV Network.
All this and more will be brought to you free of charge. That's right eight days of non stop softball information all available at The Fastpitch TV Network. What else could you ask for? I am not sure, but I bet I figure out something more before its over.
Here are a few of the people who are helping me cover the WCWS this year. I will add people to this article as they commit.
Mackenzie “Mack” Joseph is currently attending college majoring in film and broadcast. She is also a softball player and former NCAA recruit but her college softball career ended early due to injury.
