Opening Day Baseball Brings Out New Reporting
Baseball fans across the nation were smiling this weekend with opening day games around the league. Those of you who know me, recognize that I’m a raging Red Sox fan, but last night’s 8pm start time against the Yankees was just too late for me to catch the entire game. So, upon checking the scores this morning I got to see this cool new interactive game summary on Redsox.com.
The spark lines show Tweet volume with mouseovers that offer details on each individual tweet. And the highlights are actual video clips that fire off a new window right from the summary page. Way to go MLB.com for delivering a simple, yet innovative mix of professional and consumer generated content.
Oh, yeah…the Sox beat the Yankees 9 – 7 in the opener if you’re wondering.
