Why? They already have Buck and McCarver…
Bloomberg Sports today announced that it has reached a new licensing agreement with Major League Baseball (MLB) postseason broadcasters FOX Sports and TBS to provide custom-designed enhanced statistical analysis, professional analytical tools and a data feed of in-depth pitch analysis for each game of the 2011 playoffs and World Series. TBS is the exclusive television home of all four Division Series and the National League Championship Series, with FOX airing exclusively the American League Championship Series and World Series.
These new features, including very detailed predictive tools for pitcher-batter matchups, will give broadcast teams unique information on player tendencies and the potential outcome of each play, improving the experience and engagement level for the viewer like never before. For instance, broadcasters will have the ability to provide the viewer with the likelihood that a player will reach base, based on count, bases occupied, inning, and number of outs. The tools are a media-designed version of the same analytics system that Bloomberg has built for MLB teams. Currently, the majority of MLB clubs are using Bloomberg Sports’ tools for season-long player analysis and scouting.
Another new and unique feature that is exclusive to FOX Sports is a state-of-the-art on-base percentage predictor for each batter that updates with each pitch. This innovative technology is customized to any matchup and the circumstances of the game.
for his generous support.
