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 baseball scoring, official statistics and league administration services to the leagues.

“The Atlantic League is anxiously awaiting this week’s 2010 season openers and looks forward also to the first season of our business relationship with Pointstreak as the official Statistical Service of the Atlantic League. Pointstreak has taken the time to prepare our operations people for the season with information, individual work sessions and guidance during the setup period and has the support staff in place to handle any questions Atlantic League personnel may have.” stated Joe Klein, Executive Director of Atlantic League Baseball which opens their season April 22nd.

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.

The Atlantic League began playing in 1998. Current markets include Bridgeport, Camden, Lancaster, Long Island, Newark, Somerset, Southern Maryland, and York. The league begins play on April 22nd.

About the American Association:

The American Association is one of the great names in the history of professional baseball leagues in the United States.

Existing clubs include Brockton, New Jersey, Pittsfield, Quebec City, Sussex, and Worcester. The league begins play on May 27th.

About The Frontier League:

In the winter of 1992-1993, several men got together and decided to start an independent professional baseball league to serve the West Virginia, eastern Kentucky and southeast Ohio areas. They believed they could bring professional baseball to areas that would never have a chance of affiliated professional baseball coming to their communities. Since then, the league has had rapid expansion and now has 12 teams in 7 states.  The league begins play on May 20th.

About The Northern League:

The first Northern League began as an independent league in 1902. In 1993, the current day Northern League began play again.  Current franchises include Fargo-Moorhead, Gary, Joliet, Kansas City, Lake County, Rockford, Schaumburg, and Winnipeg. The league begins play on May 20th.
