BaseballRox.com Launches Most Comprehensive Youth Baseball Destination on the Web for Players, Families and Coaches

Free Rich Media Website to Deliver Unprecedented Levels of Instructional and Entertaining Baseball Content for Youth Sports Participants and Enthusiasts

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - BaseballRox (www.baseballrox.com) today announces the launch of its baseball-focused website created exclusively for youth athletes, their coaches and families. BaseballRox is the only free site on the web bringing together in one place all the tools that athletes, parents and coaches need to truly excel at the sport of baseball. BaseballRox allows players to improve their quality of play and enjoyment of the sport. By combining proprietary training videos and tools with an aggregation of the best baseball information on the web, BaseballRox offers unparalleled content that would cost countless hours and hundreds of dollars if sourced separately.

Leveraging the talents of a team of coaching professionals, skilled web developers and designers, BaseballRox offers original content covering all things baseball, including high-quality training videos, drills, entertaining and interesting baseball features, interactive games, health and training tips, as well as valuable advice and forums for coaches. The youth baseball destination centers content on high quality, video-based skills training modules for youth athletes or novice baseball coaches and players of all ages.

"The idea for BaseballRox was born on the field -- a baseball field," said Lou Soumas, CEO of BaseballRox. "Parents themselves, our founders developed the concept for the site as they searched for fun, inexpensive, high quality resources for themselves, their kids, and coaches. BaseballRox was developed to help millions of young baseball enthusiasts across the country celebrate the game of baseball by uniting the passion around America's favorite pastime with an unmatched breadth and depth of rich, interactive media."

BaseballRox has partnership agreements with organizations, including Positive Coaching Alliance, who share our commitment to providing the highest quality player and coaching experience to youth baseball families. BaseballRox.com is being launched with the corporate support of family-focused companies, including the Ford Motor Company, who shares a passion for our national pastime.
