With the opening of the 2006 Postseason, the team here was quite pleased to debut some enhancements to our gameday product that we've been working on for quite some time. We've put camera systems into some of the ballparks to essentially take high speed photography of each pitch and convert it into telemetry data in real time. This allows us to show baseball fans and gameday users very accurate pitch trajectory and speed in sync with the text based play by play feed that they usually watch when not watching MLB.TV. It's been an exciting project for us, as its involved working with every level of the various organizations in and around the league. Enhanced Gameday has its own blog, which you can check out here: http://gameday.mlblogs.com
The product itself is accessible just as you would access normal gameday. You'll be given a choice when you start up the app as to which version you'd like to watch.
