The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) and National Professional Baseball League of Nicaragua (LBPN) has signed a two-year agreement to promote the domestic league.

The WBSC will support Nicaragua's professional league by providing tournament management tools, advanced statistics modules and stakeholder integration for a smooth event delivery.

The world governing body said it will seek to boost fan experience.

"This is an exciting mutually beneficial landmark agreement that not only benefits the LBPN, its clubs and stakeholders and Nicaraguan baseball in general," said Riccardo Fraccari, WBSC President.

"It will also help our sport reach new audiences in Central America and at the same time help drive international audiences to LBPN and Nicaraguan baseball, further solidifying and showcasing baseball as Nicaragua's national sport."

As part of the agreement, the WBSC will support the LBPN professional winter championship with My.WBS, an advanced digital suite.

This will give the LBPN access to improved management tools for all league stakeholders, including real-time advanced statistics, live score tracking and other advanced features.

The package will last for two years, with an open option for extension.

It is claimed other leagues using My.WBSC have enjoyed an increase in traffic on their platforms of more than 1.5 million page views per month.

Fans will be able to view live baseball data and statistics from pitch to pitch, as well as access facts and features.

"We are very proud to display the new digital capabilities of engagement from LBPN in order to increase fan engagement, one of the league's key objectives," said Pancasan Arce, LBPN chairman.

"Additionally, and as part of the commitment from LBPN to provide access to all fans and stakeholders in real-time, LBPN will be launching its new platform on opening day, allowing broadcasters, fans and rights holders to access a new era of information from the league."

The LBPN is hopeful the agreement will help to consolidate growth in the sport in the nation.

Nicaragua are currently 14th in the WBSC’s men’s baseball world rankings.
