We're proud to announce Ballparks of America has joined the HiCast Sports Network, a game-changing, subscription-based social broadcast company which allows youth athletes, their coaches, families and friends to view sporting events at top venues across the nation anywhere, anytime, on any device.

HiCast offers an automated, turnkey video technology solution for venue owners and managers who want to provide the ultimate player and fan experience, reach more viewers, engage with fans beyond their stands through shared game highlights via social media, support coaching and player development, and better manage their facility. The HiCast Sports Network installs and maintains a fixed, remote-monitored video camera solution that delivers games live and on-demand. Users get to experience game content not covered by traditional media outlets, and delivered through the HiCast Sports mobile app or web viewer. The app makes it easy for users to not only see the whole game, but to save, trim, zoom and share their Moments That Matter™ in the form of clips or highlight reels in the HiCast youth sports social network and beyond. 

“We are proud to partner with HiCast -- the industry leader in providing parents, grandparents and fans back home live stream coverage of big games at Ballparks of America,” said Ballparks of America Chief Executive Officer Hamilton Chang. 

Ballparks of America takes the travel ball "stay and play" national experience to new levels as teams and their families enjoy a memorable week-long tournament experience, enjoying over 250 family-friendly attractions, amusement & water parks, live shows, shopping, and dining.  HiCast will cover more than 20 tournaments that will bring players from around the world together on new artificial turf fields, each 2/3 scale replicas of five iconic ballparks from Chicago, St. Louis, Boston, Detroit, and New York. Players and their families stay together in Major League-style suites during all summer events. Comfortable stadium seats are located at every field along with concessions and retail, all centered around America’s favorite past-time.

“We’re thrilled that Ballparks of America is now part of the HiCast Sports Network. We’ve appreciated HiCast’s complete coverage at Baseball Heaven (Yaphank, NY) as a valuable add-on to our televised coverage for select games during our National Youth Baseball Championship finals, but it’s really exciting to see that important qualifier tournaments will now have live and on-demand coverage and we’ll be able to share game highlights with our social media followers,” said Nathan Clinkenbeard, Communications Manager, National Youth Baseball Championships.  

 “We’re bringing families and friends together around sporting events no matter where they are located. With HiCast, no one has to miss that great catch or grand slam and we now have a platform to build up our young athletes and celebrate these Moments That Matter™ together,” said Stephanie Calabrese, HiCast co-founder and chief brand officer. 

HiCast Sports Network operates with a robust network of partners (venues) and promoters (sporting leagues and event organizers) with which they cultivate win-win relationships. Currently, the HiCast Sports Network covers hundreds of thousands of youth athletes playing on more than 100 baseball and softball fields at premier venues in Delaware, Georgia, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, South Carolina and Texas.
