Pointstreak.com Inc. has reached an agreement with five additional independent baseball leagues. The Atlantic League, American Association, Can-Am League, Frontier League, and Northern League are pleased to announce they have reached a long-term agreement which will see Pointstreak provide real-time scoring, official statistics, and league administration services to the leagues.
Pointstreak Stats' baseball platform will streamline the process of capturing and delivering game statistics for independent baseball and deliver those game events to the league and team websites in real-time for the benefit of players, fans, and media partners. A unique feature of Pointstreak's baseball statistical solution is Game Live, a real-time flash application that streams play-by-play baseball results over a 3-D graphical image of a baseball field. Pointstreak Stats for baseball is also geared towards the needs of media sources, providing Associated Press (AP) formatted box scores, allowing for easy reproduction of baseball stats into print media.
"Pointstreak is looking forward to partnering with each of these leagues,” said Paul Pettipiece, Vice President of Baseball Operations of Pointstreak.com Inc. “Offering real-time statistics to these five leagues in addition to the Golden Baseball League, who we partnered with in 2009, allows Pointstreak.com to become a daily ritual to fans of professional independent baseball.”
