How long does HiCast archive games? Can I save and share a play from the summer?
We archive games for three months from date of play. For example, as of October 15, you can access games as far back as July 15, so don’t delay in saving and sharing your summer game highlights.

Why are there two categories for baseball and one for fast pitch softball?
Across our network of venues, we cover a much higher percentage of baseball games than fast pitch softball, so highlights shared to our HiCast Feed reflect that. We’ve got a lot more baseball highlights to choose from, so having two categories dedicated to baseball and a single category for fast pitch softball gives us a chance to honor more winners.
