It’s official! Baseball just kicked off its 2007 season and fans know Spring is in the air when they start to smell the green grass, hear the crack of the bat and taste the mouth-watering flavor of garlic fries (world famous at the Giant’s AT&T Park, anyway). Real fans will have their gloves in one hand and their team’s hope of reaching the World Series in their hearts.
Since baseball season is by far my favorite season of the calendar year (smiles), I thought I’d kick things off with a MindManager map that shows you how I keep track of my favorite team MLB team. It even comes complete with RSS feeds- so I can keep up to date on the team’s latest press releases. (Hint: to update RSS feeds on a MindManager map, just hit SHIFT+F5 when you’ve got your map displayed. Look for instructions on how to create your own RSS feeds in a MindManager map within the application by doing a “RSS Feeds” search by going to: Help:Mindjet MindManager Help or look for our instructional map in the next Mindjet Newsletter)
Download our SF Giant’s 2007 map for ideas:

Then create your OWN and enter our “Mindjet Takes YOU out to the Ballgame” contest.
How would YOU map out your favorite team facts, history, press releases, associated sports blogs, interviews, pictures of your favorite players, your team’s 2007 schedule and more?
The only limitation to an amazing baseball map will be the constraints of your imagination.
