Game casting will start this weekend
We will add a new feature this week, so that players, family members or friends at home can keep track of each game as it is going on. The app that we use to keep score, iScore, comes with game casting ability. This weekend, we will cast the Saturday games, and possibly all three games on Sunday. If a game is not cast live, it will be entered following the game, and players or family members can watch a "replay" of the game later.
This is a new feature, so be patient as we work out the kinks. This Saturday will be the first extended test that we will do, and you are invited to watch us "stick the landing" or "face plant." We're hoping for something in between, and we hope to do better each week.
If you watch through a computer, you will need nothing to view the casting -- it is done through the web browser. If you are using a mobile device, you will have to download a free app to do it. There are game casting links in a few places on the website already. Clicking on the game will show you that the game has not started yet, but if you do that with a mobile device, you should be given information on how to get the app to view the game.
Opening Day set for Sunday
While Major League Baseball is in the midst of a lockout, and Spring Training games have been postponed, the East Carolina Amateur Baseball League will open its 18-and-older division season on Sunday, March 6, with a slate of three games.
The ECABL defending champion Rockies will host the Orioles at 1 p.m. in a rematch of last season's championship game. The Braves will host the Cubs at 4 p.m. and the Red Sox will host the Yankees at 7 p.m.
The ECABL is still registering players for its 35-and-older division. Games for that division are expected to begin April 13.
The wooden-bat, fast-pitch baseball league has been in existence since 2016, providing baseball for players ages 18 and older.
