BaseballCloud and Yakkertech are proud to announce their second year of partnership with the Frontier League, the longest-running active professional independent baseball league in the United States and a Major League Baseball Professional Partner League. Following last year’s successful partnership, the two companies have entered into a multiyear exclusive agreement that will continue to bring cutting-edge technology and data solutions to the league.
As part of the partnership, BaseballCloud and Yakkertech have exclusive capture and distribution rights for official Frontier League data collected via Yakkertech’s optical ball tracking system. The league will distribute and provide data to enhance insights when signing players. The coaching staff has the opportunity to create player development systems using BaseballCloud’s premier product suite.
Yakkertech, as the only fully-optical data capturing solution available in this market, will provide a new level of analytics previously unavailable to Frontier League organizations. Hundreds of ball flight metrics and real-time data will be collected on every play of the season and distributed to sports betting operators, MLB teams, as well as broadcast feeds and fan engagement initiatives.
In addition to bringing new technology and data solutions to the league, BaseballCloud, Yakkertech, and the Frontier League created a summer analytics internship program for the 2023 season that spans multiple Frontier League markets. This internship will provide students with an opportunity to learn about the data and analytics side of the baseball industry while working with cutting-edge technology and solutions.
BaseballCloud and Yakkertech are thrilled to continue their partnership with the Frontier League and look forward to bringing cutting-edge technology and data solutions to the league for years to come.
