The British Baseball Federation is excited to announce the introduction of a new baseball scoring application My Ball Club and statistics website (coming soon) which includes a complete player, team and league management system.
The WBSC sponsored scorekeeping management application (app) My Ball Club offers users the ability to quickly and intuitively score baseball games. In 2021, the My Ball Club app will be made available to the BBF baseball leagues, at no extra cost. The app offers each member club and teams the ability to enter, capture, edit and share game scores for baseball leagues and special events for youth, women and seniors.
BBF Officials Commissioner Gabor Erdos says: "British baseball has a catch-up to do in the field of scoring. The introduction of My Ball Club app and MyWBSC features are significant steps in the right direction. The My Ball Club app is an intuitive tool that will allow scorers (beginners and skilled) to keep track of the game. Fans afar can check and follow the BBF games (youth and adult) online pitch by pitch. Box scores will be available on the website as the game finishes. League tables, team-level statistics, individual batting, pitching and defensive leaderboards are also part of the scorekeeping solution.
The My Ball Club app will link to the WBSC global digital platform seen by millions, whereby player's statistics will be individually distinguishable, recorded, archived, accessible, and provide exposure to worldwide fans, media, talent scouts and college coaches. Further, our national team players can assess their progress through the years of international baseball competition."
