The Detroit Tigers have partnered with 15 Seconds of Fame, a social media app that delivers personal video moments to fans who appear on camera at live events.
The partnership will allow fans at Comerica Park to see clips of themselves when they appear on the videoboard at Tigers games.
Starting with Thursday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, fans can download the 12SOF app using iTunes or Google Play, or access it within the Tigers MLB.com Ballpark App. Fans just have to upload a “selfie” during registration and check into the game they are attending. If they appear on the ballpark videoboard or on the game broadcast, their video moment will be sent to their mobile device after the game ends.
The content — a high-resolution digital video clip — can then be shared instantly across social networks.
“It’s tough to name a more thrilling moment for a fan than seeing yourself on the videoboard at a game,” says Brett Joshpe, CEO of 15 Seconds of Fame. “And now that memory can be replayed and shared from the palm of your hands. We are excited to partner with the Tigers organization, which recognizes the value in bringing its fans these special memories that will last a lifetime.”
The launch with the Tigers comes after 15SOF had a successful launch with the University of Michigan last year.
