Project Prototype work:   We chose 2 MLB teams for prototype testing, have scored 600+ games covering 2013 and 2014 seasons, sought feedback from professionals inside the sport.

Positive reviews received from:

Retired MLB Player (10+ year career)

Current MLB coach

3 MLB team media members (Print & Broadcast media)

Amateur level Athletic Director


* Notes regarding the Game PDFs and the scoring effort: 

The focus of the prototype/proof of concept work was to capture LA Angels and STL Cardinals for every 2013 & 2014 game and discover:

  1. Team MVP
  2. “Under the radar” players
  3. Players who contribute More/Less than their standard numbers may show
  4. Take baseball speak such as “0 for 1 with a walk and 2 sac flies” and numerically tally the value of that effort inside the game → View this actual game report here:  Game 075-06-21-14PHI1-STL 4-4ScoreExample-Adams-0-1-Walk-2SacFlies.  Just one of so many examples of how the so-called “little things” help win games … and in our view are not little at all … they’re huge.

The scoring work has been done almost exclusively by one person so – generally speaking – the site visitor should expect only the LAA/STL side of a game.  However you will periodically get the Opponent scorecard as well.

Thanks to the volunteer scorer who helped with early 2014 work but whose college class load was rightfully a higher priority.

The time and effort involved in scoring 2 MLB teams was sometimes overwhelming so thanks in advance for your patience and support.
