CEO Brian Wilhite and NFL legend Brett Favre talk sports and the future of Sqor

By: Devon Teeple

In early July, I had the pleasure of speaking with Sqor CEO, Brian Wilhite, who discussed his new platform, Sqor, a site dedicated to enhancing the fan/athlete relationship. 

In my follow-up interview, I spoke with Brian on the future of the company and discussed the role NFL legend, Brett Favre plays in its growth.

The GM’s Perspective: What is next for Sqor and how can you see it expanding in the future?

Brian Wilhite: The next step is just to continue what we’re doing really. Continue blocking and tackling and staying focused on the business and game plan we have going forward: Meeting, delivering and giving the fans closer access to the athletes, and delivering a really rich platform. With that being said, we’re going to continue on a very aggressive product roadmap. That roadmap is a developmental process that will span over 15 months. From a fans perspective, it’s going to be focused on engagement and implementing and bringing back our Showdowns product.

Beach Bums' Johnson signs with Twins

D.J. Johnson of the Traverse City Beach Bums has been picked up by the Minnesota Twins. Johnson, in the midst of his fourth professional minor league season wowed the Beach Bums saving a career high 14 games and posting a 1.30 ERA in 24 games. Johnson is not stranger to the professional ranks. He's spent time within the Tampa Bay Rays and Arizona Diamondbacks organizations. In four seasons he's racked up six wins to go with 10 losses. His 9.8 SO/9 is very impressive as is his 2.69 career ERA in over 110 games and over 150 innings.

Tal Smith talks Atlantic League and Pace of Play Committee

By: Devon Teeple

The Atlantic League has been working on a variety of ways to speed up the length of games. Over the course of the last year, they’ve been collecting data relevant to the cause and have now created the Pace of Play Committee. The panel consists of some of the greatest baseball minds the game has ever seen: Tal Smith, Roland Hemond, Pat Gillick, Joe Klein, Cecil Cooper, Bud Harrelson and Sparky Lyle. They will be taking suggestions from fans, media, baseball people from a variety of sources, and proposals from the committee, who will look for ways to enhance the "watchability" of the game while keeping the fundamental rules and integrity intact. It’s not just about speeding up independent league games, but enhancing the pace and increasing excitement for fans at every level.

Welcome to the latest edition of the Indy Ball Weekly Perspective

  • Canadian Rene Tosoni is quietly having a solid season for the American Association's Sioux City Explorer's. I spoke to Tosoni earlier this year about his experiences in the game and what he's doing right now shows the dedication he has to get back in affiliated baseball. After 63 games, Tosoni leads the team in hits (66), home runs (6), base on balls (29), doubles (17), tied for lead in triples (2), and second in RBI (34).
