Let’s Play Ball!

Baseball is a sure sign of spring, and you can find a game nearly everywhere.  Little League, high school, college or pros, rec teams, church leagues, men, women, kids — the countryside is dotted with players and fans. This is a prime opportunity for some great Agent Insight submissions covering America’s Favorite Pastime in your town.

In addition to showing off your market’s homes and neighborhoods, Agent Insight is designed to give your prospects a good look at all the community’s amenities. Why not highlight the events and activities that happen this time of year? Baseball is an easy choice because you can find photo opportunities all over town, and the sport has such broad appeal.

Colin Seitz, RE/MAX Benchmark Realty Group in Central Valley, NY, submitted the insight below. His writing tone is breezy and personal and tells an appealing story of a baseball game he attended.

Little League Baseball at Frank Policano Field
One evening this week I took a trip to the Newburgh, NY Little League fields to cheer on my nephew in a baseball game. It was a beautiful night to enjoy the competitive all-star game. The concession stand was open so that spectators could purchase food or drinks to enjoy throughout the game and the bleachers were crowded with cheering parents. The scoreboard made it easy to keep track of what was happening, in case you missed something, or to update friends and family who couldn’t be there in person with a quick photo text. The facility has many positive attributes to make sure that you enjoy your time while watching your team.

The friendly tone of Colin’s article tells a little about his personality and describes this excellent sports facility in Newburgh. Plan to write something similar about the stadiums and ball fields in your town, and submit it soon. Be sure to use first person like Colin did because it makes the article personal and more fun to read. That’s one of the beauties of Agent Insight:  your prospects can get to know you a little bit before you even meet.

All the baseball venues provide a rich source for photos, too. Take a look at the variety in this selection below submitted by agents from several states.
