Streaming games has become an expected piece of our high school sports coverage in the years since we rolled out our first production.
You’ve told us. And the metrics have shown it.
But while basketball and football have been the focus of most of those live streams, we’re eager to experiment and expand.
So consider this an invite to log on to postcrescent.com on Thursday as we bring you — drum roll, please — a Fox Valley Association baseball matchup pitting Appleton East and Oshkosh North from Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute.
First pitch is scheduled approximately 45 minutes following the completion of that afternoon’s Midwest League game between the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and Cedar Rapids Kernels, which is set to start at 12:05 p.m. So plan your viewing accordingly.
Joining me in the booth will be colleagues Ricardo Arguello and Jim Rosandick. And as always, a live interactive chat will be coupled with the stream, so feel free to ask us your real-time questions in between the sweeping curves, humpback liners and 6-4-3 double plays.
Once the game is finished, look for results — as we get them — from a busy slate of prep action on Twitter by following @sports_pc. Use the hashtag #hsswi.
And find complete prep sports coverage, including videos, photo galleries and some cool interactive packages on our Varsity site at postcrescent.com/sports/varsity.
Our expansion plans won’t end with baseball. We’re growing. And that’s exciting.
