Fantasy sports is a social experience but social is missing from current products.

Switch-Hit combines social/messaging platform with fantasy sports data. We’ve developed a fantasy sports product that has an inbuilt social feed bringing all of the real-time banter, context aware game updates & news for each league to one place. This is a much superior experience resulting in higher social engagement. Our goal is to be a multi-sport platform with identities (users, authors, players) and plug-in all elements of - social, game, news - into this setup for each league.
