With Orlando Hudsons free agent signing with the Minnesota Twins for the 2010 season came an immediate need to change his website over from his previous Los Angeles Dodgers look and feel. This has been the third or forth time that we had a player that has switched teams and has needed a very quick site redesign to capitalize on the energy and passion of his new fan base.
What makes it really challenging is the player never knows about the change until the last minute whether it is a trade or an off season free agent move. You might have some idea of where they may go, but if you try and guess so you will be prepared it always seems like they never end up with the team you prepared for (as a matter of fact I have yet to guess right). The other big issue is that it just won’t feel right to switch the player site over to the new team colors and use photos from the previous team, so you really have to act quickly to comp up a photo and make it look like they are wearing the new team uniform.
