Pointstreak Sports Technologies and Little League International are pleased to announce they have reached a service agreement which will see Pointstreak providing real-time scoring, official statistics and administration services for the 2010 Little League Baseball World Series.  The 64th World Series will be played Aug. 20-29 in Williamsport, Pa.

“The online scoring system created by Pointstreak SportsTechnologies provides a presence on the Internet not previously available to Little League fans,” Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball and Softball, said.  “The GameLive in-game scoring presents World Series games on a platform that we expect will help to broaden the experience and bring the action over the computer in real-time.”

Pointstreak's baseball platform will streamline the process of capturing and delivering game statistics for the World Series and deliver those events to the Little League 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.

“The Little League World Series is one of the biggest youth sporting events in the World and we are extremely proud to have been selected as the Real Time Scoring and Statistics Provider for the 2010 Tournament,” Scott Secord, CEO and President of Pointstreak Sports Technologies, said.  “To have the ability to deliver scoring and official statistics to their fans and media partners in true real-time will be a great enhancement to the 2010 World Series’ standard operations.”

To access the site during the World Series go the Little League web page ( www.LittleLeague.org ) and click on the Pointstreak/Little League World Series/GameLive logo in the top center of the front page.

Little League Baseball and Softball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program, with nearly 2.6 million players and 1 million adult volunteers in every U.S. state and scores of other countries.
