Jun 10, 2011
Toronto, ON – Pointstreak Sports Technologies Inc. and the Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA) are excited to announce they have reached an agreement to make Pointstreak the official provider of real-time scoring, official statistics and tournament administration services to the 2011 ASA 18-Under GOLD National Championships. This prestigious event will consist of 64 of the nation’s best teams and is widely considered the most prominent ASA Junior Olympic tournament. Competition will take place at the Sportsplex-USA facilities in the greater San Diego area from July 24-30, 2011.
“We are thrilled to be working with Pointstreak this year at the 18-Under GOLD in San Diego,” said Julie Bartel, ASA/USA Softball Director of Marketing and Communications. “We feel the products and tools they offer will enhance this championship and provide information and statistics for all fans and participants. The ASA is committed to making their championship experiences the best in the country and we look forward to this new endeavour.”
Pointstreak Stats’ Fast Pitch platform will streamline the process of capturing and delivering game statistics for the ASA Girls’ 18-Under GOLD National Championship. All game events, including scores, standings and statistical information will be captured directly at the diamond and seamlessly delivered to the ASA GOLD tournament website (http://gold.asasoftball.com) in real-time for the benefit of players, fans and media partners. Anyone will be able to follow along with games pitch-by-pitch via the web or mobile device on Pointstreak’s “Game Live” feature, a real-time flash application that streams play-by-play softball results over a 3-D graphical image of a Fast Pitch diamond.
“Our partnership with the ASA will allow us an opportunity to further coalesce with the Fast Pitch community to provide rich and relevant content for players, fans, scouts and media partners,” said Paul Pettipiece, Vice President of Baseball Operations of Pointstreak Sports Technologies Inc. “The ASA 18-Under GOLD National Championship is amongst the top tier of fast pitch competition in North America and we look forward to having the ability to provide real-time, interactive scores and official statistics to their stakeholders via the web and mobile applications”,
