BBF PRESENTS... iSCORE – THE SIMPLEST WAY TO SCORE BRITISH BASEBALL!

06/07/2013, 12:00pm BST
By BritishBaseball Federation

After extensive testing during the pre-season and early regular season, the BBF is pleased to announce iScore as the preferred scoring application for British Baseball. iScore Baseball is one of the easiest and most intuitive ways to track a baseball game electronically.

iScore multidevice

It allows coaches and fans alike to keep a detailed record of the progress of a game. It has everything you need to score, track and review a game plus it doesn't require your followers to pay additional fees to access your teams’ statistics or follow games live online.
 
You do not need to know how to keep a scorebook to use iScore Baseball but scorekeepers will love the scorebook output. During the game, a simple scoring process helps you to record even the most complex plays. Full base runner control means that every stolen base, pick-off and passed ball is tracked.
 
iScore tracks pitch-by-pitch balls, strikes, balks, runners advancing by wild pitch, catcher interference, assigned errors and so much more.
 
A pitch tracker allows you to track every pitch location, type and speed, plus speckle charts help you review the pitch history. Furthermore, a batting spray chart and previous at bat summaries will give your team an edge over the competition.
 
The unique advantage that iScore has over other similar scoring applications is the ability to download player line-ups directly from, and upload game stats instantly to the BBF website. With full support for the NGIN platform, iScore really knocks the competition out of the park!

But do not just take our word for it, take a look at iScore in action courtesy of the official BBF guide to using iScore video and find out how easy it is to get started:

Over 350 Batting, Pitching and Fielding stats are tracked, and a detailed scorebook can be viewed at any time during the game. Cumulative statistics are also available for each team. In addition, all statistics and scorebooks can be sent directly to any email address. Coaches will never again have to spend hours trying to extract data from paper records just to see how their players performed.

iScoreCast

Followers who are not at your ballpark can feel like they are really at the game by following the progress of your team live and online. Simply enable the iScorecast feature on your device and viewers will be able to login to watch live updates as they happen, pitch by pitch, play by play!
 
Scorekeepers can send email links to any potential viewers directly from their scoring device or alternatively the links can be posted onto Facebook, Twitter or website feeds, in order to maximise the number of watchers following your games live.
 
Scorecasts can be viewed for free from any mobile device, laptop, tablet or home computer - which means no additional subscription costs for your followers.

SCORECARDS

You can even email a traditional scorecard of any game scored with iScore Baseball. These scorecards are just like the ones kept with pen and paper but are an improvement in many ways. Features include full color representations of different types of plays, tracking how runners advance bases, strikes swinging vs looking and so on.

POWERPACK XL

During the official BBF trials it became apparent that such a comprehensive scoring application can take its toll on the battery life of your mobile device. This led to the trialing of portable battery charges such as Powerpack XL during our beta testing. The trials have demonstrated this type of solution can hold the charge on your device for the duration of two single header games and then some.
 
The BBF has also produced a video showing you how to use Powerpack XL and merits of partnering it with iScore on game day.

Keep checking back on the BBF website for a promotional offer for Powerpack XL soon to be announced!

BATTER UP!

iScore is available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices and can be downloaded from the iTunes or Google Play stores at the very reasonable price of around £6.99 (per device).

A printable step-by-step guide to getting started with iScore can be downloaded here.

A range of additional iScore tutorial videos and documents can be accessed here.

With extensive BBF testing now under our belts, we are satisfied that iScore is reliable, stable and convenient to use. Whilst you may carry on using your current methods of scoring games and manually uploading data to the BBF website, iScore is by far the most simplest and automated way keeping scores, broadcasting live scorecasts and instantly uploading game data at a touch of one button!

Join the iScore revolution today, you will not regret it and you’ll also be playing your part in creating a more dynamic and uniform way of producing live game data to help increase the followers of British Baseball.
