Pointstreak Announces Real-Time Scoring and League Administration Solution for Baseball
Apr 08, 2009
After months of successful beta testing, Pointstreak has officially announced the launch of its real-time scoring and statistics system for the sport of baseball.
Toronto, ON – Pointstreak.com Inc. announced today the launch of its latest sports platform, a real-time scoring and baseball league statistics software designed for the sports of baseball and softball. This solution will provide all the features that have made Pointstreak the market leader in the sports of hockey and lacrosse, including Pointstreak’s real-time statistics solution- Pointstreak Stats. The platform will also provide users with access to Pointstreak’s administrative tools designed to provide solutions for more effective and efficient league/team operations. Pointstreak’s baseball offering is now immediately available to all levels of baseball and softball including professional, collegiate, high school, youth and little league.
Pointstreak’s entry into the baseball market began in October 2008 with the acquisition of the baseball scoring application, Rakonza.com. Rakonza.com, an electronic scoring application, developed by Stephen Rakonza, allowed users to record baseball statistics on computers and handheld devices. This technology was conceived as an electronic version of a traditional paper-based baseball score sheet. Mr. Rakonza has since joined Pointstreak’s baseball technology team which has successfully integrated the baseball game scoring application into the real-time statistical pages and web-based administrative tools of Pointstreak. Pointstreak has also expanded the hardware devices supporting the baseball application, most notably, a fully functional application was released for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch and is available for consumers through the iTunes app store by searching for keyword “Pointstreak baseball”.
Scott Secord, President and CEO of Pointstreak commented, "We are excited about our entrance into the baseball marketplace with the launch of our new league administration software. This technology represents a tremendous opportunity for our company and all of the interested baseball stakeholders. For leagues and teams to have the ability to deliver real-time scoring and official statistics to their participants, fans and media will be a great enhancement to standard practices. In addition stakeholders will be able to follow the game in real-time using our flash application - Game Live, which provides industry leading graphics. By delivering a comprehensive application for baseball, it allows our company to continue to grow as one of the world’s foremost sports solutions software developers.”
