Pointstreak Partners with Dixie Youth Baseball for World Series Scoring Technology
Jul 27, 2011
Toronto, ON – Pointstreak Sports Technologies Inc. and The Dixie Youth Baseball are pleased to announce they have reached an agreement which will see Pointstreak provide Real Time Scoring and official statistics for the 2011 DYB ‘O’Zone World Series, DYB Majors World Series and DYB AAA World Series. This will be the second consecutive year in which Dixie Youth has utilized Pointstreak’s in-game baseball scoring system for our three World Series events.
The Pointstreak scoring technology will be utilized at the DYB “O”Zone World Series in Madison Heights, Virginia, August 6-11 and the 56th Dixie Youth Majors World Series and the Dixie Youth AAA World Series held concurrently in Carthage, North Carolina, August 13-18.
“Pointstreak Sports Technologies’ scoring system was widely acclaimed by those who followed our 2010 World Series held in Lexington, South Carolina and Gonzales, Louisiana,” Wes Skelton, Commissioner of Dixie Youth Baseball, said. “One proud grandparent who was working in China followed his grandson’s World Series games and many other DYB players and fans were treated to real-time graphical play-by-play and stats for all our 2010 World Series games. We look forward to opportunities to expand the use of the scoring system at our regional, state and district tournaments in the future.”
Pointstreak Stats’ baseball platform will streamline the process of capturing and delivering game statistics for Dixie Youth Baseball and deliver those game events to the league and team websites in real-time for the benefit of players, fans and media partners. A unique feature of Pointstreak’s baseball statistical solution is Game Live, a real-time flash application that streams play-by-play baseball results over a 3-D graphical image of a baseball diamond. Pointstreak Stats for baseball is also geared towards the needs of media sources, providing Associated Press (AP) formatted box scores, allowing for easy reproduction of baseball stats into print media.
“We are extremely excited to partner with Dixie once again this year for their World Series events. To have capabilities traditionally reserved for the big leagues will really be great for these kids and other stakeholders,” said Paul Pettipiece, VP of Baseball Operations at Pointstreak.
