Micro Fantasy Brings Real-time Prediction Contest Technology to Walla Walla Sweets in 2018
Second West Coast League team adds digital fan engagement platform
Brecksville, Ohio, USA – Thursday, April 19, 2018: Micro Fantasy LLC has announced a partnership with the Walla Wall Sweets to provide its Micro Fantasy play-by-play prediction contests for all 2018 home games. The Sweets are a collegiate summer baseball team located in Walla Walla, Washington. The team began play in the West Coast League in 2010.
All attendees of 2018 Sweets’ home games with the Micro Fantasy app installed on their mobile phones (iPhone or Android) can participate in Micro Fantasy prediction contests. Those watching Sweets’ games online (wallawallasweets.com) or listening to games on the radio (Fox News Walla Walla 99.7 FM | 1490 AM) can also participate in the contests.
The Sweets open their 2018 season by visiting their sister team, the Yakima Valley Pippins, on June 1 as part of a three-game series. Whether fans travel to Yakima Valley to cheer on their Sweets for their first three games in as many days, or watch the games stream live, fans can play along with each batter in real time. With the free Micro Fantasy sports prediction app fans pick from ten options to guess whether the next batter might fly out, strike out, walk, or hit a home run!
“We are thrilled to partner with Micro Fantasy to bring their prediction gaming contests to Walla Walla fans this season,” said Sweets
general manager Dan Ferguson. “Joel Crites has created a great game that brings the fun and essence of fantasy sports to fans of all ages. With how successful Micro Fantasy has been across the landscape of athletics, we have no doubt it will be a hit with Sweets fans.”
Walla Walla fans will have the chance to participate in three contests per game (each three innings) over the course of a full nine-inning game. At the end of each contest, the person with the highest point total for those three innings will win a prize from one of the contributing sponsors including Domino’s Pizza, Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Walla Walla, and Legends Casino.
At the end of each game, the person with the highest cumulative score for all three contests will win the grand prize from the contributing sponsor for the evening. At the end of the season, the person with the highest overall cumulative Micro Fantasy point total for all 32 Sweets home games will receive a $500 Visa gift card.
The Micro Fantasy prediction contest mobile app is currently available for download through the Apple App Store and Google Play. An online version is also available on microfantasy.com. Micro Fantasy contests are available for baseball, softball and football games. Contests can be scaled for every level of play from pro to youth. Contests for other sports are in development.
“The Walla Wall Sweets have had outstanding success since the team formed nine years ago. We look forward to helping them continue that success as it relates to fan experience & sponsor value,” said Micro Fantasy Founder and CEO Joel Crites. “We are extremely fortunate to work with a proven baseball executive in Zachary Fraser, president and COO of Pacific Baseball Ventures. His involvement in our partnership with the Sweets will help us optimize Micro Fantasy contests for the collegiate summer baseball environment.”
