Almost 7 million people play fantasy baseball. Ford has decided to cater to these players by offering them a unique way to check their stats and decide who should be played in each game. Ford SYNC® with Traffic, Directions, and Information Services will now be offering fantasy baseball updates.
Players can get updates quickly and concisely by pairing a Bluetooth®-enabled phone with an active SYNC services account. Once they are connected, the driver states “Sports” followed by “Baseball” followed by “Fantasy Update.” SYNC will then inform the driver of the weekly leaders in both the AL and NL, batting averages, home runs, RBIs, runs scored, stolen bases, pitching records, saves, and strikeouts.
Now, fantasy baseball players do not need to pour through magazines, newspapers, and websites to determine who should be in and out of the lineup. All they need is a Bluetooth-enabled phone and SYNC. And thanks to the portability of SYNC, baseball updates are available for select 2010 and newer Ford and Lincoln models.
