Faced with the need for an all-inclusive application so parents can get more involved in the sporting lives of their children, “My Future Star Baseball” is becoming as much of a baseball staple as are sunflower seeds and hot dogs. Ensuring busy parents never miss another all-star moment, the app (which utilizes push notification technology) allows parents to stay focused on one of their many responsibilities, while never forgetting about a child’s game, practice, or event.

Faced with the need for an all-inclusive application so parents can get more involved in the sporting lives of their children, “My Future Star Baseball” is becoming as much of a baseball staple as are sunflower seeds and hot dogs. Ensuring busy parents never miss another all-star moment, the app (which utilizes push notification technology) allows parents to stay focused on one of their many responsibilities, while never forgetting about a child’s game, practice, or event.

A busy coach himself, the app’s creator Michael Lusic has extensive baseball experience. A member of the American Baseball Coaches Association, the National High School Athletic Coaches Association, and the National High School Baseball Coaches Association, Lusic is hoping parents never have to stare into the face of a disappointed youngster; all because they showed up late and missed out on a child’s defensive gem, walk-off homerun, or the best game ever played by their young son or daughter.

“Anyone who is a loving parent knows how terrible a feeling it is to personally disappoint their child,” says Lusic. “Just imagining the look on a child’s face as they worriedly scan the bleachers for their absent parents was enough for me to want to create this application.”

“My Future Star Baseball” lets users set simple reminders for any desired time period and receive notification from audible alerts and on-screen messages, displaying information such as game times and even game locations. For the stat-heads out there, the app also allows for 50 total stat inputs (23 hitting, 18 pitching, and 9 fielding stats) including your basic HR and RBI tracker, while also calculating WHIP, K/BB ratio, slugging percentage, and more.

“We tried to give the app as many elements as possible for parents to utilize while watching their kids on the field,” Lusic continues. “Aside from the reminder feature and stats, the app has email capabilities and social media connections, allowing you to email friends and relatives directly from the game, or post game highlights immediately to Facebook and Twitter.” Parents who have multiple kids with varying schedules will enjoy the app’s multi-page setup, giving each child their own personalized profile and schedule.

It’s common among groups of little league parents to have that one mom or dad who is always running late, or who routinely forgets about a game. “My Future Star Baseball” is taking away the excuse of “I was just so busy…” or “it just slipped my mind,” and is simply helping parents be better parents.

The app is currently available for $1.99 and can be downloaded via Apple’s App Store. For more information, you can visit http://www.mfsbaseball.com. Softball parents can look forward to “My Future Star Softball,” which offers all of the amenities of “My Future Star Baseball,” but is geared towards little league softball.
