RSVP for Bloomberg Fantasy Event

As you may have read below, Bloomberg and MLB.com have entered into a partnership to launch two new state of the art analytic products, one for the professional teams, and one for fantasy sports and general interest.  We delivered the professional product to the teams at the Winter Meetings in Indianapolis for a six-month trial, and the response was very strong.  The consumer product designed for fantasy players and avid fans will launch in mid February.

Bloomberg will be hosting an invitation-only event in New York on Sunday, January 31, to give a sneak peek at the consumer product to key baseball media, to get feedback before it goes to market.

The meeting will take place on Sunday so that those interested in coming from out of town would be able to join, with enough time to take everyone through the product step by step.  Food and drink will be served.

We would like you to join us for the event and get a preview of this fun, innovative, state-of-the art tool that will grow both the fantasy baseball market and overall interest in baseball.  An outline of the product, as well as preliminary press reaction, can be seen at www.bloombergsports.com.

Seating for the event is limited, so if you would like to join us please respond for further details and credentialing.

Thanks for your time and interest, and we hope to see you on January 31.

Please RSVP to Joe Favorito at bbsports@bloomberg.net.

An exciting new fantasy product

We hope you are enjoying the off-season and all the Hot Stove talk that is starting to build during the winter meetings and beyond.

You may have heard recently about a new product for Fantasy Baseball that Bloomberg and MLB.com are readying for the 2010 baseball season…a product that takes player analysis to a new level, and will be a lot of fun for fantasy players. Here is the link to a story about the product in the New York Times.

The BLOOMBERG SPORTS(TM) team wants to be sure that you are aware of the product, as someone who is passionately involved in the coverage of baseball.  We will be reaching out to you to sample the service and get your input before it is available to consumers.  The feedback of those who follow the sport so closely is invaluable to Bloomberg in building the best tool ever for baseball fans.

We are organizing an invitation-only event in New York City in late January for a group of the most influential baseball writers who would like to learn about the development of the product and the technology behind it.  We hope you will be able to join us for this event, where you will get a complete walk-through of the new service and a free subscription to these analytical tools.

We hope to see you in January, and we know you will be impressed by this one-of-a-kind product.
