NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – The New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) is pleased to announce it has partnered with BlueFrame Technology for the latter to serve as the Official Video Streaming Provider of the New England League, the most competitive brand of collegiate wooden bat summer baseball in the country.
The NECBL will use BlueFrame’s industry-leading Production Truck software and digital broadcast distribution to stream every game of its 13 members across custom NECBL-branded web, mobile, and streaming media applications.
“For the past 20 years, the NECBL has been committed to being a leader in broadcasting summer collegiate baseball,” said NECBL Commissioner Sean McGrath. “During that span, we have brought the game into the homes of our fans near and far and through avenues that utilize modern technology. Our commitment to our broadcast network has provided hundreds of young broadcasters the chance to make the NECBL their summer home as they aspire for a career in the industry.

The NECBL season traditionally begins in early June with an eight-week regular season schedule of approximately 40 games followed by an exciting playoff for the league’s top prize - The Fay Vincent Sr. Cup, named in honor of the former MLB Commissioner and long-time NECBL supporter.
“This is an exciting time for BlueFrame Technology and we are thrilled to partner with one of the premiere collegiate summer baseball leagues in the nation,” commented Mark Krug, Director of Partnerships at BlueFrame. “Our services and technology will improve both the viewing experience and access to league broadcasts for NECBL fans.
