MLB Case Study MLB Case Study Document Transcript

  • WORLD CLASS TALENT “Creating an online engagement tool in partnership with one of the world’s largest sports organisations” SETTING THE SCENE Big League Analysis (BLA) secured a partnership with, the digital arm of Major League Baseball (MLB), to develop the Digital Academy. is a top 500 global website. The agreement with BLA was to create tools that educate and create enthusiasm for the game of baseball at the youth level. The brief was clear – Create an engaging online tool set that directly benefits users and interacts with their physical actions on the field during coaching sessions. THE CHALLENGE The key challenge involved creating a user friendly platform that made it quick and fun to upload and map a swing video on the website. At the same time, the system’s back-end needed to fully automate the online process, analysing the uploaded video before providing a detailed and personalised summary report to the player or coach. THE SOLUTION 1. Swing Analysis - Users are able to upload a video of their swing and the user friendly interface breaks down the amateur swing in comparison to a chosen MLB superstar. 2. Online Club House - Users can access their videos, a practice planner tool, an online magazine and a fun baseball game. 3. Coaches Corner - Extra online tools help coaches review their whole team’s performance. 4. A transactional system - Allows users to purchase ' Tokens' via Spree Commerce.
