Stats pitches MLB extension

Sports technology, data and content company Stats has extended its multi-year partnership with MLB Advanced Media, the interactive media and entertainment company of North America’s Major League Baseball.

Stats will continue to serve as the real-time data licensor for MLB, a role it has held since the partnership began in 2010. Terms of the new contract were not disclosed.

Under the agreement, Stats will continue to distribute real-time and post-game information from MLB games to global media outlets in web, mobile, broadcast and print. Stats will also continue to distribute content from all MLB affiliated leagues, such as the Triple-A, Double-A, Single-A and Rookie League, and the Arizona Fall League and the Caribbean Winter Leagues.

“MLB Advanced Media is an important strategic partner,” Stats chief executive Gary Walrath said. “We could not be more pleased to continue the partnership and disseminate the MLB experience across the globe.” 

Kenny Gersh, senior vice-president of business development at MLB Advanced Media, added: “We are pleased to continue this partnership. Stats has provided a reliable distribution platform for the more than two million pitches we track data for each year across professional baseball.”
