Little League Baseball and Softball Will Utilize Pointstreak Sports Technologies for Scoring Technology
Jul 22, 2011
Toronto, ON – Pointstreak Sports Technologies and Little League International are pleased to announce they have reached a service agreement which will have Pointstreak provide real-time scoring, official statistics and administration services for the 2011 Little League International Tournaments. This will be the second consecutive year in which Little League has utilized Pointstreak’s in-game baseball scoring system for tournament play.
Last year, Little League used the system on a trial basis for the U.S. Little League Division baseball regionals. The system was then utilized on a “live” basis for the Little League Baseball World Series.
This year, the system will be used at each of the five Little League Softball regional tournaments in the U.S., all eight of the U.S. Little League Baseball regional tournaments, and at as many as eight of the World Series events, including the Little League Baseball World Series.
The softball regionals begin today in the East and Central regions. The baseball regionals begin at three locations on Aug. 4, and the Big League Baseball World Series begins on July 27 kicking off a month of World Series action. The 65th Little League Baseball World Series will be played Aug. 18-28 in South Williamsport, Pa.
Little League Baseball and Softball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program, with over 2.5 million players and 1 million adult volunteers in every U.S. state and scores of other countries.
