Little League® Baseball and Softball announced today that live scorekeeping and game update app GameChanger will continue to be an approved licensed scorekeeping tool for the 2015 season. GameChanger will also be the official scorekeeping tool for all nine Little League® World Series events and select regional tournaments.
Through GameChanger, Little League Baseball and Softball leagues, teams and coaches will continue to have access to detailed statistics and records, and effective tracking metrics, including pitch counts and playing time. Use of GameChanger is completely free for all coaches and teams. Parents and fans of Little League teams can follow their favorite teams’ games live on their phones, tablets, or mobile devices.
Tournament scorekeepers at the Little League World Series and select regional tournaments will record every pitch with the GameChanger app on a total of 35 iPads®. This season marks the third year that GameChanger has provided live, digital stats for the Little League World Series events. As part of the partnership, GameChanger access will be free of charge for family and fans during the nine Little League World Series events and regional tournaments.
“GameChanger will help Little League coaches, officials, and the more than 2.4 million players around the world keep stats and records more easily, while also allowing families, fans and friend to follow games in real time,” said Elizabeth DiLullo Brown, Little League Baseball and Softball Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships. “Working with GameChanger is an excellent opportunity for our teams and coaches to integrate technology into their games.”
As approved licensed partners, GameChanger and Little League will continue to conduct co-branded marketing campaigns to encourage coaches and leagues across the U.S. to use GameChanger’s iOS app as the means for recording all the action on the field.
