We're so proud to have partnered with the Babe Ruth League to have covered the entire Cal Ripken Major70 World Series at Ballparks of America in Branson, Missouri, August 3 - 11, 2018.

Yep, we used our own HiCast Sports App to save the game highlights you see in the highlight reels above.

This integration of the live televised feed gave families and fans around the world the power to save and share game highlights as they happened on the field live. While we were in Branson, Missouri at the World Series, we could see that players and coaches were focused on each other, their performance, and enjoying this once-in-a-lifetime experience at Ballparks of America. Many teams bunked together in suites at the ballpark and had fun making new friends in the arcade or playing whiffle ball out under the lights in the evenings. But now that the World Series is over, players and coaches can replay their games and relive the memories from the entire tournament any time on-demand and save and share their Moments That Matter™ with the people who matter most.

"The fans were very excited. Every day, people were telling us what a wonderful experience it was to be able talk to the people back home who had just watched their games.

HiCast Sport Network Covers MLB RBI Southeast Championship Games

18U RBI Atlanta Braves beats RBI Montgomery 5-0 and heads to the MLB RBI World Series.

When you've got an opportunity to cover the MLB RBI (Revitalizing Baseball in Inner Cities) Southeast Regional Championship Games hosted by the Atlanta Braves in your own backyard, you make it happen. We were proud to cover the Softball and Senior (18U) Baseball Championship Games at Kennesaw State University on Sunday, July 29. Winning teams from the Southeast now head to the MLB RBI World Series to compete against champions from six other regions in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota hosted by the Minnesota Twins from August 5th through the 16th.

The RBI program has served approximately 2 million young athletes since its inception in 1989. It's designed to give young people from underserved and diverse communities the opportunity to play baseball and softball, while also encouraging academic achievement and success and teaching the value of teamwork. RBI currently serves young men and women in over 300 programs in approximately 200 cities worldwide. It has provided a path for many players to enter the college and professional game. MLB Clubs have drafted more than 200 RBI participants throughout the program's 30-year history, and many others have been given the opportunity for higher education through baseball and softball scholarships. There have been more than 90 RBI alumni selected between the 2013-2018 MLB Drafts.

We wish all of the RBI Regional Champs the best of luck in the World Series!

HiCast Sports Network Covers Buckhead Baseball

Join us for highlights from Opening Day on March 24, 2018 at Buckhead Baseball in Atlanta, GA where players and families enjoyed good times with special guests including the Atlanta Braves Heavy Hitters Drumline and mascot Blooper, and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta mascots, Hope and Will.

Buckhead Baseball was founded in 1952 with a mission to "develop our players' skills and character, promote good sportsmanship, cultivate lifetime family friendships and HAVE FUN!" We're proud to cover spring and fall seasons and their Moments That Matter™ for these young athletes on seven fields. Each field is dedicated to teams within a specific age group, beginning with T-ball at age 4 up through Majors at age 12. Buckhead Baseball also has a Buddy Baseball program that enables children with special needs to play baseball with support from the 12-year-old Majors.

Nathan Allen, coach and father of four sons playing ball at Buckhead Baseball shares, "We’re out here pretty much every night. What’s been cool for us about HiCast is that we often have kids playing games on different fields at the same time. So just the other day, my oldest had a game on the Majors field and my younger son had a game on the Rookie field. My wife was actually sitting in the stands watching one son on the field and watching our other son's game on the Rookie field on HiCast.” Nathan's father in Ohio uses the HiCast Sports app to watch his grandsons play too.

Valerie Ausband, HiCast user and mother of two sons playing ball at Buckhead Baseball travels frequently for work, but doesn't have to miss her son's games. “To be able to watch the game when I get back to my hotel room, makes me feel like I was there and I can really talk to the boys about the game and who did what. It makes them feel like I was there in spirit because I actually saw them.”

HiCast user and dad Brad Watkins can typically attend his sons' games at the ballpark but “I use HiCast to watch highlights I want to revisit after their games and share them with family and friends, usually through text or email. My older son watches his games to view his performance, as well as other games in his age division… almost using it as a scouting tool.”

We value our partners here at Buckhead Baseball and the family environment they've created and continue to cultivate while developing the skills of these young athletes just beginning to learn the game we love so much.

HiCast Sports Network Hits a Home Run for the Baseball Youth All-American Games

Last weekend, the Baseball Youth All-American Games brought 335 youth athletes from 39 states and three neighboring countries (Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico) together to play ball at Elizabethtown Sports Park in Kentucky. But here's the best part... teammates met for the first time on arrival to the ballpark!

The All-American Games gives the best of the best youth baseball players (all nominated) a unique opportunity to team up with fellow athletes across state and country lines to form Baseball Youth teams (United, Eagles, Patriots, Freedom, Stars, and Firecrackers) spanning six different age groups. On the field, you’ll find players identified by their home state or country displayed on the back of their jersey. But beyond the top-notch competition, the All-American Games creates a solid playing field for new friendships to form, uniting diverse players and families.

 "We have players coming from all over the United States and travel is expensive. Not everyone can attend. Parents and grandparents want to see their player participate in an All-American event like this, even though they can't be there in person. People were thrilled that we were doing that. The quality was fantastic. No issues at all. We were pleasantly surprised and pleased by that. Having HiCast Sports Network involved was very valuable for us and we hope to continue that with other events we put on.” Shared Scott Hacker, founder of Baseball Youth.

Scott Hacker (former collegiate and professional player) created Baseball Youth in 2005, starting with the Baseball Youth Magazine. About three years ago, Baseball Youth, began hosting their own youth baseball tournaments, both individual events such as the All-American games and week-long team events with great success, growing their fanbase of followers not only at ballparks but across social media networks, spanning more than 350,000 fans.

“The All American Games is a unique experience not only for the players, but for families. It's a rare opportunity to play on a team with kids from across the country and it's a bonding experience for the families. These kids come together to play on a team with kids they've never met, and they leave as best buddies. If you're a top level player from Maryland, you're playing with kids at that same level from California, Texas or even Alaska. The whole experience... from the opening ceremonies held at the University of Louisville Jim Patterson Stadium... to workouts and skills measurables, to games all weekend long... it's just very unique." shares Scott Hacker. "It's one of those memories they will never forget from their youth baseball career."

Each player is asked to share their primary and secondary position, and Baseball Youth puts a lot of effort in forming team rosters that mix players from different states, and not only give athletes     a chance to showcase their skills, but also stretch them by giving them an opportunity to play different positions. "We try to make it a lot less stressful and more enjoyable than playing on their home-based travel ball team." says Scott Hacker. 

HiCast Sports Network set up a temporary network installation at Elizabethtown Sports Park to cover the event on the four key championship fields, and live-streamed select games through Baseball Youth's Facebook page 300k+ followers, to play off live tournament excitement. We provided live and on-demand through our HiCast Sports Network mobile app and web viewer, giving players, coaches and fans the ability to save and share their favorite highlights from the game in the HiCast Sports Network and beyond. User highlights from the tournament appeared in Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, receiving thousands of views.

How does Baseball Youth feel about players and fans having the ability to save and share tournament highlights from the HiCast Sports Network? Scott Hacker said, ”It's unbelievable. It's great for the parents. It's great for the venue, and our tournament. You'll see us doing a lot of that as we go through the tournament archive and share highlights through our social networks."

What would Baseball Youth say to venues considering the HiCast Sports Network? "It's a no-brainer. Everything that we requested was done this past weekend, and it worked perfectly in our mind. For any destination-type of venue... why would you not install the HiCast Sports Network and showcase your ballpark? It just makes perfect sense,” shared Scott Hacker.

Each team had to earn a bid to compete in this final week of championship games by way of NYBC Qualifiers that occurred March - July throughout the US. 

Nathan Clinkenbeard, Communications Manager for Steel Sports, shares, “It all comes down to providing the ultimate tournament for these players and families to experience… beyond the games, we’re providing opening ceremonies, skills competitions, a home run derby and Friday is our big festival day. We understand the time and financial commitment these families make to come to New York for a week and we just want to give back, and celebrate these young athletes and families for all the hard work they put it all season long.”

NYBC was founded in 2008 by former Chicago White Sox vice chairman and minority owner former Eddie Einhorn. His vision was to give youth travel baseball athletes a platform to showcase their skills. Steel Sports expanded the NYBC to include more age groups. “We want to give these players that unique opportunity to play for a national audience. While we get a lot of hype around our 12 games to be televised by CBS Sports, the great news is that ALL of our games at Baseball Heaven will be covered by HiCast Sports Network,” said Clinkenbeard.

How does NYBC feel about HiCast Sports Network putting game highlights in the hands of players and fans at Baseball Heaven? Clinkenbeard answers, “These kids love being able to see their highlights and we love sharing them too in our NYBC social media. Getting exposure for a great hit or a big play is everything to them. These are the future stars. You’ll see many of these players in Major League Baseball one day.”

Triple Crown Sports Teams Up with HiCast Sports Network to Bring Families Across America Together on One Playing Field

Triple Crown Sports will host its second annual US Club Nationals at legendary East Cobb Baseball Complex in Marietta, Georgia on July 18 - 22, bringing together 12 baseball clubs from across the country and one from Canada representing 900 youth athletes from 9U to 14U age divisions to compete for coveted championship titles.

Triple Crown Sports will crown one club the overall champion at the closing ceremonies to be held at The Battery Atlanta and SunTrust Park (home of the Atlanta Braves) on July 22.

Joe Santilli, Executive Director of Baseball for Triple Crown Sports, shares “The geographic representation is phenomenal. We limit how many clubs we invite from each region. Our criteria is not just performance on the field. We invite clubs that are highly competitive and highly organized. They’ll be 10-16 games in each division, but because of the high caliber of play, you know every game is going to be a good one.” Clubs represented in this year’s event include:

  • Alabama – Central Alabama Nationals
  • California – South Bay Surf
  • Colorado – Slammers Baseball
  • Florida – Five Star Tigers
  • Georgia – 6-4-3 DB Baseball, Georgia Bombers and East Cobb Baseball
  • North Carolina – EvoShield Canes
  • Oregon – Mound Time Baseball
  • Texas – Dallas Patriots and Dallas Tigers
  • Virginia – Tidewater Drillers
  • Ontario, Canada – Fieldhouse Pirates

Triple Crown Sports selected East Cobb Baseball Complex to host the US Club Nationals because of the park’s reputation. “It’s a beautiful facility. Well kept. The East Cobb Baseball organization is legendary in travel baseball. And what we saw last year with the HiCast Sports Network at East Cobb Baseball Complex was just great. It enhanced the experience,” shared Santilli. True to their core value of putting “Family First,” Triple Crown Sports goes beyond the competition on the field to create a fun experience for the whole family including tickets to an Atlanta Braves game and tours at the new SunTrust Park and entertainment at The Battery Atlanta.

“Triple Crown Sports is about building memories. And our events are all about providing those moments that will give someone a lifelong memory. When I was originally involved as a coach with Triple Crown Sports, I still have these crystal clear memories in my head of teams that I coached in the Steam Boat World Series, but HiCast is actually capturing those memories. So no matter how clear it is in my head, no matter how I explain these memories to someone, it’s never going to be the same. HiCast makes it possible for someone to save and actually show it to someone. Triple Crown Sports is creating the event for these memories to happen, and HiCast is capturing them, which is just a great addition and a great partnership for us.”

Catch the entire tournament live or on-demand July 18-22 on the HiCast Sports Network using your mobile device or computer and use our HiCast Sports mobile app to save and share your favorite highlights from the tournament. Championship Games for 13U and 14U will also be televised on ESPN3.
