T-Mobile USA, Inc. and Major League Baseball (MLB) announced today at
the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show that T-Mobile is now
the Official Wireless Sponsor of MLB. As part of the multi-year,
multimillion-dollar partnership, T-Mobile will work with MLB and its
industry-leading digital media and technology company, MLB Advanced
Media L.P. (MLBAM), to enhance America’s national pastime on and off the
field with game-changing wireless capabilities. This marks the first
time in more than a decade that MLB has partnered with a major wireless
Under the agreement, T-Mobile will provide MLB with a new On-Field
Communication System, powered by T-Mobile’s powerful nationwide 4G
network technology. The first use of this technology will be in a
wireless voice system connecting managers in select Major League dugouts
to coaches in bullpens. This dugout-to-bullpen system will start to roll
out in 2013 and the new On-Field Communication System solution will
offer greater mobility as well as options for future innovation within
“We look forward to working with Major League Baseball and are excited
they have chosen T-Mobile’s technology to power a new, in-game
communication system at ballparks across the country,” said Mike
Sievert, chief marketing officer, T-Mobile USA. “Unlike a typical
sponsorship, we’re approaching this partnership as a collaboration in
which T-Mobile, MLB and MLBAM will work together to evolve the game with
exciting new technology innovation, enhancing the experience for
customers and fans.”
“T-Mobile has made a significant commitment to Major League Baseball
across our game and business, and its innovative drive and expertise in
wireless technology will be an outstanding addition to the baseball
industry,” said Tim Brosnan, MLB executive vice president, business.
“T-Mobile has been an impact player in the wireless industry, and we
look forward to its innovative spirit positively influencing the game
and the way fans enjoy it.”
In collaboration with MLBAM, T-Mobile also will tap the power of its
nationwide 4G network, currently available in 229 metro areas, reaching
more than 220 million people, to further enhance and broaden network
coverage and connectivity for fans in MLB ballparks. This past season,
MLB recorded its fifth-best attendance year in its long and storied
history by attracting more than 74.8 million fans to regular-season
In addition, MLBAM, which develops, deploys and distributes the
top-ranked sports mobile application of all-time — MLB.com At Bat — will
work with T-Mobile to enrich the digital experience on T-Mobile’s
smartphones and tablets; create custom, compelling content exclusively
for its customers; and develop promotional opportunities and unique
offers for MLB.com content.
“Baseball is America’s No. 1 digitally consumed sport, and today’s
baseball fan is technologically savvy and data hungry, which makes this
partnership a great opportunity for not only baseball enthusiasts, but
also millions of T-Mobile customers,” Sievert said.
“The underpinning of a partnership with a key provider such as T-Mobile
mirrors baseball’s long-held belief in leveraging and implementing
wireless technology to deliver first-rate products and services to the
industry and our fans,” said Bob Bowman, president and CEO, MLBAM.
“T-Mobile will play an important role as we continue that focus on
bringing top-notch content, connectivity and customizable experiences to
consumers wherever they are.”
The T-Mobile investment in baseball is a comprehensive, multifaceted
marketing approach that will include partnerships with national
broadcast partners FOX, Turner, MLB Network, and ESPN. T-Mobile will be
the presenting sponsor of ESPN’s Wednesday Night Baseball, including
on-air, digital and mobile sponsorship initiatives, in addition to
features on ESPN’s Baseball Tonight. T-Mobile and MLB also will develop
marquee media opportunities and marketing extensions at events
throughout the year, as well as local sponsorships with select MLB
Clubs. Currently, T-Mobile is a sponsor of the Pittsburgh Pirates and
the Seattle Mariners.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
