Little League to Work with MLBAM to Provide Digital Highlights Infrastructure
Little League fans around the world again will be able to relive their favorite tournament moments on any device as Little League International has partnered with MLBAM to provide content during Little League International Tournament games throughout the month of August.
Through the collaboration, Little League will deliver highlight clips and other video content, powered by MLBAM, from all 137 Little League World Series Tournament games broadcast across the ESPN/ABC family of networks. The Little League-owned digital videos, including top plays, sportsmanship displays, and more, will then be featured on Little League’s online and mobile platforms, including social media and videos.littleleague.org.
“The Little League World Series and Regional Tournaments shine spotlights on the sportsmanship, hard work, and fun that can be found all season long at Little League fields around the world,” said Stephen D. Keener, Little League President and CEO. “As Little League continues to expand its digital offerings, our video highlights showcase all the reasons why Little League is the world’s largest and most respected youth sports organization, and provide our fans the opportunity to continue to enjoy their favorite moments from August. We are proud to work with our friends at MLBAM to enhance the digital experience surrounding the Little League World Series.”
