Major League Baseball’s (MLB) Detroit Tigers have entered a new partnership with 15 Seconds of Fame, a social media app which delivers personal video moments to fans who appear on camera at live events.
The agreement will be activated immediately, and fans that download the app will be able to check into the game they are attending. If they appear on the big screen at the Michigan-based franchise’s Comerica Park or on the live broadcast, the app will send a personalised video moment to their mobile device after the game ends.
15 Seconds of Fame already provides baseball fans with their TV appearances from all game broadcasts through a league-wide partnership with Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM).
Brett Joshpe, chief executive of 15 Seconds of Fame, said: “It's tough to name a more thrilling moment for a fan than seeing yourself on the videoboard at a game, and now that memory can be replayed and shared from the palm of your hands.
"We are excited to partner with the Tigers organisation, which recognises the value in bringing its fans these special memories that will last a lifetime, and proud to deliver the important Michigan-area fanbase more video moments after a successful launch at the University of Michigan.”
The Detroit Tigers are fourth in the MLB’s American League Central, and play the first of a three-game home series against the Minnesota Twins on 11th August.
