Feb 16, 2010
Toronto, ON – Pointstreak and The New York City Police Department’s Finest Baseball Club (NYPD’s Finest) are pleased to announce they have reached an agreement which will see Pointstreak provide real-time scoring, official statistics and administration services to the team.
“The NYPD Baseball Team has stepped into the 21st century with the addition of Pointstreak Stats. The Game Live feature will allow our fans to follow us live when we are on the road. This is a great feature for any team at any level,” said Eric Sorensen the club’s General Manager.
Pointstreak's baseball platform will streamline the process of capturing and delivering game statistics for the NYPD and deliver those game events to the team’s website 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 very proud to have been chosen as the Official Real Time Scoring and Statistics Provider for NYPD’s Finest. To have the ability to deliver real-time scoring and official statistics to their fans and media partners in true real-time will be a great enhancement to the current offerings” said Paul Pettipiece, VP of Baseball Operations for Pointstreak, “We support the charitable efforts of the NYPD Baseball Club and are very pleased to be able to offer their many supporters the ability to follow them live while they’re on the road”.
