BIO:

Andy Larkins and his 16-year old website, cincysoftball.com, have transformed Greater Cincinnati softball over the past two decades.  Along with Andy’s Facebook page, cincysoftball.com has become the number one online resource for Greater Cincinnati parks, players, managers and fans to exchange softball information, with an audience of over 10,000 slow pitch enthusiasts.  Now possessing over 25 years of experience as a player, manager, sponsor, Andy first developed a passion for the game at Rumpke Park competing against many Hall of Fame players, while learning about the competitive opportunities available in Metro, State and World Tournaments.  A lifelong entrepreneur and partner in a website hosting company, Andy saw an opportunity to revolutionize the nation’s largest tournament, the Cincinnati Metro, by providing a website to streamline the ability to obtain game times and bracket information.  That idea took hold in 2003 when he registered cincysoftball.com, launching the site in 2004 after partnering with several parks, adding a message board, and archiving articles from the Cincinnati Softball News.  Almost instantly, the site became the best advertising spot for area softball league and tournament operators.  Eventually in 2010, cincysoftball.com became the exclusive platform for Cincinnati Softball News.  At its peak, the site topped out at over 2 million pageviews per year and this past year had over 2,000 unique IP visitors.  After Softball News publisher Mark Linnemann retired in 2014, Todd Sledge came on board and the site started leveraging Facebook. Cincysoftball.com can now quickly push video content and tournament results and announcements to over 5300 followers on that platform while maintaining the current site and message board.
