Live FPC Softball play-by-plays will be available online

Officials from Frank Phillips College announced last week that live play-by-plays and stats for every game this season will be made available online through a new technology called GameChanger. Now fans, local media and other team followers can follow the team’s online “GameStream,” even when they can’t be at the field. Too good to be true? Here’s how it works: Frank Phillips College scorekeepers use the GameChanger iPhone/iPod touch application to physically score each game. Every play and update recorded by the scorekeeper on the iPhone app – yes, every hit, run and strike – will be instantly posted online where registered fans can follow the action. Dozens of post-game statistics are also automatically compiled for every player. “Live online game feeds have always been reserved for the big leagues – until now,” said Ted Sullivan, co-founder of the GameChanger technology. “The ability to now ‘watch’ a local youth game while you’re at work or in a business meeting is absolutely priceless – just ask any working parent with a kid on the field. We’re excited that Frank Phillips College is bringing GameChanger to community fans.” Frank Phillips College fans can sign up to follow the action here: “This is a great way for our fans, community members, the parents of our student-athletes who cannot make every game an opportunity to at least get to see how we are doing. It isn’t a live stream but I think that this technology is a great way for everyone to keep up to date with the teams’ progress. Look for some additional information and a team scoreboard coming to the softball team’s homepage on the FPC website in the near future.” – Head Women’s Softball Coach Lucas Grider
