Ford Plays Fantasy Baseball On Sync

  • June 16, 2011
Ford is getting into fantasy baseball through its Sync in-car telematics system. Through its traffic, directions and information services area it will offer a list of weekly hitting and pitching leaders in both the American League and National League using voice commands, the company says.

Users have to have a paired Bluetooth-enabled phone with an active Sync Services account, per the company. Once connected, the driver says "Sports," then "Baseball" then "Fantasy Update." The audio recedes the weekly leaders in both the American League and National League, along with hitting statistics including batting average, home runs, RBIs, stolen bases and runs scored. Pitching statistics include records, saves and strikeouts.

"It's been estimated that nearly 7 million people play fantasy baseball, and all of them scramble to get any kind of information about the very best players they should be putting in their lineups," said David Gersabeck, SYNC Services product manager, in a release.
