May 06, 2011
Toronto, ON – Pointstreak Sports Technologies Inc. and The National Baseball Congress (NBC) are pleased to announce they have reached a long term agreement which will see Pointstreak provide league administration services to NBC Affiliated Leagues.
“The NBC feels that Pointstreak is the leader in technology and efficiency when it comes to providing rosters, scores, schedules, standings and live stats for baseball, which is why we wanted to form a long standing partnership”, says Case y Walkup, Operations Manager for the National Baseball Congress. “This will allow scores, rosters and standings for all NBC affiliated leagues to be found in one location, which is something the NBC has never been able to offer until now. We want to do our part in providing our players as much exposure as possible and we feel this will be a huge step in the right direction.”
Pointstreak Scores Only baseball platform will streamline the process of capturing and delivering game results for the National Baseball Congress and deliver those game results to the NBC for the benefit of players, fans and media partners. A unique feature of Pointstreak’s Scores Only baseball solution is it’s compatibility and integration with Pointstreak’s Real Time Stats and League Administration Solution. By this, those who desire in depth statistical information and Real Time play by play for their team will be able to plug the full featured system into the Scores Only platform and give their team fan base full access to individual stats and Game Live, a real-time flash application that streams play-by-play baseball results over a 3-D graphical image of a baseball diamond.
“We are extremely excited to partner with the NBC in this initiative. To be able to offer an easy to use uniform solution to their league’s that will manage rosters, schedules, scores, standings and game information will be a great efficiency for them. In addition, all stakeholders will have easy organized access to the information at the NBC website. And for those teams wanting to take it to the next level and use our Real Time Stats Solution we have made it incredibly easy to plug right in to the NBC platform”, said Paul Pettipiece, VP of Baseball Operations for Pointstreak Sports Technologies.
About the NBC:
Raymond “Hap” Dumont hosted the first National Tournament in 1935, offering the legendary Satchel Paige $1,000 to bring his barnstorming team from Bismarck, ND. It did not matter that he didn’t have a dollar to his name. Hap made the money from the tournament and paid Paige along with a little bit of compensation for the other teams on the field. With coverage and sponsorship from the Sporting News, baseball’s bible at the time, the tournament was an instant national success. Now, 77 years later, Dumont’s tournament continues to showcase the best amateur talent in America and around the world. From Satchel Paige to Whitey Herzog, Tom Seaver, Ozzie Smith, John Olerud, Will Clark, and recently Albert Pujols, the National Tournament is a who’s who for the future of the Major Leagues. Each year, nearly every Major League team sends scouts to the tournament looking for the next diamond in the rough. With 32 teams competing in a two week double elimination tournament, the days are long and the sheer volume of players is staggering. The BaseballSavings.com NBC World Series is a tournament which has no equal and crowned its 76th National Champion in August. Played at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium for 76 years, Wichita, Kansas, is a proud host to the next generation of Major League Stars.
