Pointstreak Partners with Collegiate Baseball League Europe
Feb 27, 2013
Toronto, ON – Pointstreak Sports Technologies Inc. and The Collegiate Baseball League Europe are pleased to announce they have reached an agreement which will see Pointstreak provide real-time scoring, official statistics and league administration services to the league.
“We are excited to partner with Pointstreak and believe this will enable players, scouts and fans to more easily access information about our league. This partnership shows our ambition to become a leading organization in European baseball, providing development programs and quality competition in some of the most beautiful regions in the Old World”, said CBLE President, Jan Maarten Kops.
Pointstreak Stats’ baseball platform will streamline the process of capturing and delivering game statistics for the Collegiate Baseball League Europe 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.
“The good folks behind the scenes at CBLE have gone great lengths to ensure the growth of the league, and the Summer Collegiate Baseball across the pond. We are very excited to be part of that mix and are eager to see the game’s popularity on an international stage,” said Paul Pettipiece, VP of Baseball Operations at Pointstreak.
About the CBLE
Collegiate Baseball League Europe (CBLE) is an initiative of Jan Maarten Kops, secretary of Stichting Ontwikkeling Jeugdhonkbal Zuidwest Nederland (Foundation for Development of Youth Baseball in Southwest Netherlands) based in Oosterhout, the Netherlands.
The inaugural tournament which was held July 2012, had a 6 game schedule per team. This year we'll repeat the 2012 schedule but starting in 2014, the number of games and playing venues will be expanded.
CBLE already has an agreement with the La Rochelle Boucaniers in France to play in La Rochelle in 2014 and we're close to agreements with venues in Spain and Germany.
By moving the format of the 1-week tournament around Europe throughout the summer holiday, CBLE will become a 4-week summer league with a 18-game schedule and a CBLE play-off and championship series.
CBLE will offer talented young players an exciting baseball experience while traveling around some of the most beautiful places in Europe.
