A Sneak Peak...

Over the past three years, despite all of the features we have added to Fast Pitch!, we've been reluctant to make any major changes to the overall user experience. Part of the reason has been the fear of alienating some of our most loyal members who have become so famliar with how to navigate our network. The downside to not making changes however, is a fragmented user experience that has the potential to confuse many of our newest members who are coming to us with certain expectations. In recent weeks, it's become obvious to many of us here at Fast Pitch! that now is the time to make some changes and 'raise the bar' for ourselves and the overall industry.


Our development team has been working around the clock in recent days to overhaul the entire network in order to bring add more (and new) technology to Fast Pitch! The hope is that the overall user experience becomes more intuitive and effective for our members. Without getting into details about how we plan to do this... I can say, I'm excited about what has been developed so far. After talking briefly with my dev team this morning, many of you can expect to see some major changes in the coming days.

Stay Tuned.
