Stickbaseball.com will build on the remarkable global impact of stickcricket.com and its 100,000 plus daily visitors who average a little over 6 minutes of playing time on each visit.
Stick Baseball could cost US businesses more than $114m.
Stick Cricket is an internet phenomenon. Its enormous popularity among office workers has led to accusations that it has negatively affected the GDP of Great Britain and Australia.
Stick Sports has taken aim at America’s 45 million young male professionals. If even 0.5 percent of 18-35 year old American men played for an average of 6 minutes each day, businesses could lose a ball park figure of $114 million a year as employees waste time stepping up to the plate. This figure could be much larger as the game will appeal to the 37 percent of American’s who say they are baseball fans.
In customary Stick Sports style, Stick Baseball’s game-play is simple but never simplistic. The controls are straightforward but allow a good selection of curve balls and triple plays. The retro feel appeals to young and veteran gamers alike and the three difficulty levels provide a suitable test for any player.
Stick Baseball is very aggressive like its Stick Sports counterparts and makes the site very competitive and challenging. It includes training sessions, team play, the Home Run Challenge and a hall of fame.
First time users can play the game without registration. For more serious e-athletes, a registration process allows players to record and post their scores and to access extra features.
Stick Sports provides interactive online sports games that capture the attention of male professionals. Director Paul Collins says, “Interactive online games have emerged as one of the most exciting and effective marketing platforms. It allows for constant advertisements in the actual game or in the spaces around it.”
Chris Berry, from Stick Sports, says, “Stick Baseball is entering the big league, and all I can do is say sorry to US businesses, but we had to respond to the outcry from across the pond for an American oriented game. It’s the ideal seventh inning stretch during the work day.”
