I went to the Arvada Colts team page today to check on the progress of Illini pitcher Drasen Johnson. The Colts are in the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Baseball League. As I clicked on the “Stats” link, I was presented with only three categories of stats (Games pitched, innings pitched and wins) plus this disclaimer:
“FREE Access to the Arvada Colts for all Fans
To view expanded season statistics you must be a Fan of the Arvada Colts”
I have a hard time digesting this. To put a price on baseball statistics, even when it is “free”, sets a really bad precedent.
The Arvada Colts subscribe to the GameChanger service which displays their stats for them.
