Some recent rule changes and updates could impact your event production. Check out the changes below to ensure you’re prepared for the season.
- Special Characters – Soon, GameDay will be importing accents included in player names and no content change will be required on your part. Look for this update in the coming weeks.
- Runner on Second Rule – MiLB teams will need to support the runner on second rule this season. In Dakstats, there is a special plays tab that provides the operator the option to begin runners on second base at the start of an inning. The specific steps for entering the play information can be found in How to Start Extra Innings with a Runner on Second Base.
- Mound Visit Rule – With the addition of a new rule limiting mound visits, you can show mound visits on your display(s) in one of two ways.
- Implement a real-time-data solution. This easy to use method provides the ability show the data on multiple displays simultaneously. This application can be installed on any computer in the Daktronics system for $750 and will require an operator to track mound visits as they happen. For operator directions, see: How do I track mound visits using DakSendOne for baseball?
