HATBORO, Pa., April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sports Network (TSN) – The Sports Network, the nation's premiere real-time source and wire service for sports content, announced today that an enhanced and expanded fantasy offering is now available to all clients, prospects, fans, player/participants, game developers or anyone involved with fantasy sports in any fashion.
"There is a new leader at the head of the pack," stated Rob Dougherty, Director of Production and Design, "and we have made it available to coordinate with the start of the baseball season. We have been providing pitch-by-pitch and play-by-play data for several years, as well as gathering batter/pitcher split statistics and umpire data, now we are producing extensive insightful player news and notes and daily analysis with a dedicated staff."
"The anomaly in the world of fantasy sports is that interest in participating in a vast assortment of games dedicated to it continues to grow from the fan base perspective but more and more companies desirous of being an integral part of this world, this industry, have not been able to compete with the leaders nationwide that are offering more and more games opportunities to them. However," Dougherty continued, "whether game developer, league tracker and information site, all need an incredible amount of content and we believe that The Sports Network has just assumed leadership in that regard."
Steve Schwarz, Fantasy Sports Editor, indicated that he and his staff had "simply surveyed the landscape and determined what had to be done" to become the place to go for all of one's fantasy information. That is located at http://www.sportsnetwork.com/merge/tsnform.aspx?c=sportsnetwork&page=fantasy/index.aspx and delivers on what it promises. "Everyone is always focused," he added, "on being the first to be here and there, holding a pointed digit skyward to indicate leadership. We never believed that to be a matter of fact when done. To the contrary, it has always created a target for us to surpass as we, frankly, are the target for so many others."
"The objective is to get there and hold your position," concluded Schwarz, "Those fingers simply provided us with the impetus for what had to be done. It is one thing to raise the bar, quite another to secure that space…and maintain it. We are there and it is not in our company credo to do anything other than to set the pace, as we have done for years."
