A great way to see where I am, during the baseball season, is to follow me on Foursquare. What is Foursquare? How do I sign up? I grabbed a paragraph form their website that explains it a little more:
“Foursquare is a free app that helps you and your friends make the most of where you are. When you’re out and about, use Foursquare to share and save the places you visit. And, when you’re looking for inspiration for what to do next, we’ll give you personalized recommendations and deals based on where you, your friends, and people with your tastes have been.

This is a great social media site that I will be utilizing everyday please follow me click on this link :https://foursquare.com/_baseballbuddha or sign up for an account and follow me, I will follow you back!
Crowdfunding is the collective effort of individuals who network and pool their money, usually via the internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations. I chose to start a campaign on the website Indiegogo.com, there are many sites to chose from and it is becoming the go to platform to raise money for a variety of projects. At Indiegogo, creating a campaign is simple. Tell people what you are doing, how they can help and what unique perks they’ll get for becoming contributors.
It is my goal to raise approximately $50,000 to help support Baseball Buddha. My personal contribution is roughly $10,000 and I also have commitments of an additional $10,000 from a couple of supporters. I am looking for the support of baseball fans to raise another $10,000 on Indiegogo.com and the remaining $20,000 I hope to raise as I am out traveling and interacting with baseball fans across America during the season. The $50,000 will go towards the expenses I incur on the road, i.e. gas, insurance, camping fees, baseball tickets (hopefully I will meet some great people along the way that will give me tickets) and the occasional hotel. I promise that I will live frugally as I conduct this social experiment!
If you would like to contribute to this project you can do it a number of ways, purchase a T-Shirt or Hat, or donate a gallon of gas on my website www.baseballbuddha.com.
