Aug 31, 2011
Toronto, ON – Pointstreak Sports Technologies Inc. and Ontario University Athletics Baseball (OUA) are excited to announce they have reached an agreement which will see Pointstreak provide real-time scoring, official statistics and league administration services to the OUA Baseball League.
“OUA Baseball continues to evolve and provide student-athletes with an opportunity to compete at the highest level while obtaining a first class Canadian University education” commented Wilfrid Laurier University Head Baseball Coach Scott Ballantyne. “We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Pointstreak as it is just another example of how our sport continues to grow. We have some tremendous athletes playing in our league and with our stats now streamed via Pointstreak, our stats will now be more readily available, giving them the recognition that they deserve”.
Pointstreak Stats’ Baseball platform will streamline the process of capturing and delivering game statistics for the OUA Baseball League. All game events, including scores, standings and statistical information will be captured directly at the diamond and seamlessly delivered to the OUA website 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 baseball results over a 3-D graphical image.
“We are excited to partner with the OUA Baseball League for the upcoming season. The league has taken great strides in enhancing their profile and providing a high level of baseball for student athletes and we look forward to further assist them in the process”, said Paul Pettipiece, Vice President of Baseball Operations of Pointstreak Sports Technologies Inc.
