AUGUSTA, ME – August 17, 2021 -- The Maine Principals’ Association (MPA) is pleased to announce its new partner, GameChanger, the #1 rated youth sports app for team management and scorekeeping. The partnership makes GameChanger the exclusive scorekeeping app and pitch count technology partner of the MPA. GameChanger will help Maine coaches and parents score games and manage teams while also helping MPA members ensure youth pitcher arm safety through its pitch count technology.
“This partnership comes at a great time to MPA member schools and coaches,” said MPA Executive Director Mike Burnham. “For pitch counting and more, we’ll be leaning into the technologies that GameChanger provides to baseball and softball teams in communities throughout Maine.”
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, there is a proven relationship between innings pitched and upper extremity injury. Scorekeepers can leverage GameChanger to easily track how many pitches have been thrown and rest a pitcher once he or she crosses a certain threshold. The app can also seamlessly sync the pitching data to ensure teams adhere to each school’s requirements.
GameChanger is now partners with 20 state athletic associations overall, and 15 of the top 20 states in terms of the number of teams, as the company continues to expand its reach across the U.S.
“At GameChanger, we’re always looking to support high school teams that want to empower their coaches with technology,” said Sameer Ahuja, President of GameChanger. “Our apps make it easier than ever for these coaches and parents to manage and score their games while also providing valuable pitching data to protect youth arms.”
GameChanger now covers more games in a Spring month than the entire history of Major League Baseball. In just one year, they covered over 4 million youth sports games and the number of GameChanger users could fill Madison Square Garden 30 times on a given Saturday.
