Ahead in the Count

Changing the Game

written by Ted Sullivan

About 14 months ago, in last line of the first post on this blog, I mentioned that I was getting back into amateur sports full-time through a startup company I had founded. That company, Fungo Media, Inc. has just launched it’s first product: GameChanger.

GameChanger provides mobile apps and web tools that collect, manage and distribute live streaming game data for youth, high school and college sports.

Beginning with baseball and softball, the free GameChanger iPhone app lets coaches and scorekeepers simultaneously score a game and generate dozens of stats in real-time, eliminating tedious post-game calculations.

As each play is scored, the GameChanger online tools deliver a live play-by-play “GameStream” to the web browsers and mobile phones of parents and fans — or to real-time scoreboard “widgets” hosted on the websites of local news outlets, leagues, tournaments, travel teams and schools.

I’ve written a blog post about the company, the team and our mission that includes a short video of GameChanger in action.

Please follow our progress on TwitterFacebook and on the GameChanger Blog.
