Big Top Baseball Game Programs Go Digital


It’s opening week in Wisconsin in the Northwoods League presented by Edvest. Big Top Baseball has announced that all four of the organization’s teams including Madison, Wisconsin Rapids, Kenosha and Green Bay, will be unveiling a new free digital program for the 2016 season.

Gone are the days of paying for a paper program that gets left behind after the final out. This digital format will change the way teams represent their sponsors, how fans interact with information, and how much content they can display. All programs will now include interactive content including photo galleries, highlight videos from recent games, and links to more information about each player.

Content will be updated throughout the season to ensure all fans have the most up-to-date rosters and can read unique feature stories.

This year’s digital program will also allow fans to access the publication even if they didn’t make the game. Furthermore, it is readily available to read 24 hours a day on all devices.

Not connected? No worries. Teams will also offer tablets to be checked out for fans that don’t have smartphones or tablets of their own, so that viewing the program is easy for everyone. All teams will also continue to offer a printed daily insert with scorecard.

Beginning on Wednesday, June 1st, fans will be able to view the digital program at
