SPORTSNET.CA: What can you tell us about the Pointstreak scoreboard you use?
BOB ELLIOTT (Canadian Baseball Network): Pointsteak came about from a story we wrote about their inroads in the statistical market. Now, you can check our nightly scoreboard and see with the second baseman for the Fraser Vally Chiefs in the B.C. Premier League that night or is hitting on the season. Or how the right-hander with the Okotoks Dawgs is faring on the road, what his pitch count is, how many he's walked and on and on.
These guys are ahead of the game. I've heard the story of the father with a Pointstreak phone app feeling his phone vibrate while he was standing in line at the airport, clicking on his phone and seeing his son hit a home run.
It's as deep and detailed as ESPN's GameDay.
