New GameChanger web and mobile scorekeeping technology lets fans follow real-time game action
August 05, 2011
Officials from Midwest Pelicans announced today that live play-by-plays and stats for every game this season will be made available online through a new technology called GameChanger. Now fans, local media and other team followers can follow the team’s online “GameStream,” even when they can’t be at the field.
Too good to be true? Here’s how it works: Midwest Pelicans scorekeepers use the GameChanger iPhone/iPod touch application to physically score each game. Every play and update recorded by the scorekeeper on the iPhone app – yes, every hit, run and strike – will be instantly posted online where registered fans can follow the action. Dozens of post-game statistics are also automatically compiled for every player.
“Live online game feeds have always been reserved for the big leagues – until now,” said Ted Sullivan, co-founder of the GameChanger technology. “The ability to now ‘watch’ a local youth game while you’re at work or in a business meeting is absolutely priceless – just ask any working parent with a kid on the field. We’re excited that Midwest Pelicans is bringing GameChanger to community fans.”
