Twitter growing as strong promotional tool for town teams

Posted on May 20, 2015 by CJ Siewert

In the social media-driven world we now live in, the effects are clearly evident in the promotion of Minnesota town team baseball.

In May of 2013, there were 104 known teams and leagues with an active Twitter account. Last year at this time, that number grew to 160.

Today, the number has reached a point where it’s not the number of teams that have a Twitter account, but rather the number of teams that don’t.

There are 299 teams that comprise the MBA, which includes 36 leagues. The number of teams and leagues with an active Twitter account as of today totals 232 accounts.

If there are any teams that have a Twitter account and are not on this list below, simply tweet us @MinnBaseball

We do our best to retweet all the schedules and scores from around the state, so be sure to check out our Twitter widget at the bottom left of our home page,
