Extraordinary scoring program!

I keep score of ball games strictly for my own enjoyment. What I used to do on paper, I now do on GC. My favorite feature is that I have not come across any scoring issue that is not covered by the program, and I have experienced virtually all of them! My 4-star rating is based on one issue only. When I make a change to a team’s roster or lineup, for example a new player, regardless of the situation, I would like to see the program make the same change all across the program automatically. Hypothetically, if my Opponent is Team B, and I have to create a new player, say Player #43, in this particular game, then Player #43 should be added to the roster in all other instances where Team B occurs. That seems only logical to me.
I must mention one other item. I have had occasion to ask for help several times. Let me say that your response has always been quick, professional, and effective, and when necessary, your team has stuck with me until the situation was resolved. Thanks for a great experience!


Great app but update brings it down a star

I have been using GameChangerClassic for 5 years and it has really been good. There was a recent update on which it does not allow you to move to the next player while in the lineup to give that player a position. Instead you need to click the player then back out and choose the next player and select his position. There might’ve been some people that didn’t like the option but maybe there could be something in the settings to be able to choose which one you prefer. Also the ability to change a player from P to 1B, if the player originally playing 1B and original pitcher swap positions it used to do it for you automatically but now you need to change each individual player. It’s a lot more convenient especially when you need to make a few changes so you don’t miss anything.
Other than that it’s a great app and I have spoken to some reps at conventions and they are always looking to get better.


A Great Concept With A Few Imperfections

I would rate GameChangerClassic 4.5 stars if I could. I love the concept, as well as the ease of using GameChangerClassic and having all the stats in one place; however, GameChangerClassic doesn’t have a few key components that would make GameChangerClassic amazing. It is difficult to change a mistake if you don’t catch it right away, and I wish you could view which players subbed for who in the regular viewing as opposed to only in the scorebook view (or gave the option to remove “burned” players from the lineup), but my main problems with GameChangerClassic come from scorekeeping high school and adult slow pitch. I wish GameChangerClassic had a slow pitch option with an automatic rover/4th outfielder setting, a time limit, home run limit, and 1-1 automatic count (so it doesn’t affect pitch count). You can change all these once you’re scoring, but it’s tedious for tournaments when you have to change the settings every game.


Great app. Can only think of a few things to make it better

It’s a terrific app. Easy to score games, and the detailed stats are pretty good. Seemed pretty easy for this beginner to get started with right away.

There are a few things that would make it even better:

1) Many youth leagues have “mercy”, or run limit rules. It would be great if GameChangerClassic had a place to enter that limit in the team profile, and used that profile data to offer to end the inning when the limit is reached.

2) Many youth leagues allow pitchers and other players to be substituted out without losing their place in the lineup. It would be great if GameChangerClassic had a toggle for that in the team profile, and if toggled, automatically leaves players in the lineup when they are subbed. This will prevent some errors I have had in the past where I forgot to go back and put the player back in the lineup after I sub them out.

3) Many youth leagues have time limit rules for starting a new inning and ending the game. It would be great if there were a way to enter those limits in the team profile, and then GameChangerClassic could provide warnings when these limits are approaching or reached (maybe using the first pitch as a starting point if the scorekeeper doesn’t set it).

4) it would be pretty entertaining if GameChangerClassic could calculate a hypothetical “optimal” lineup based on past games. Or perhaps just a lineup based on sabermetrics :).


Glad something like this is available.

Being in law enforcement and working 12 hour shifts means working every other weekend. My boy plays travel ⚾️ and that means tournaments EVERY weekend. The weekends I work I don’t make the tournaments so GameChanger has been a LifeSaver! The kid is smart and he knows his daddy’s schedule but he still asks every time if I’m gonna come watch him play. Instead of just saying “no, sorry bud” every time I can follow that up with “but I’ll be glued to the play by play on GameChanger the whole time kiddo!” Kinda makes it more than about baseball at that point. Anyway sorry for the rambling but splitting weekends with his mama and seemingly missing out on half of his life makes GameChanger worth every penny and so much more! Baseball is his passion and he’s mine! Thank y’all for everything!


Excellent App

I thoroughly enjoy using GameChangerClassic. Extremely easy to use, love the ability to “undo” when needed (especially needed when your a mom and you’re still responsible for your other kids during a game). Love that parents and other family members/friends can “watch” live when they can’t be there. There are just a few items that I would like to see enhanced.

1. I would like to have a place to enter the time limit for a game and have an official start time with a count down clock. While this would be nice in the profile for specific seasons, I think there needs to be an option to change it per game as tournaments often have varying rules.

2. I would like to see an option to add a run limit. In youth sports we often have a run limit per inning. This would be more helpful than a manual override to end the inning. As with the time limit, I would like to see it in the profile to set it for a season, but with the ability to override per game in case a tournament has a different set of rules.

3. I would like to be able to set a tournament schedule so it groups all tournament games together and allows for tournament stats as a sub set of stats to a team and player’s overall stats.


Good App when not physically at game.

Good App when I am not able to physically attend games.
One issue, my daughter & niece on same softball team they both share the same first initial as well as last name. When they are on defense, it does not differentiate who is who. While they play multiple positions, it would be great if developers would allow for the 2nd initial in first name to appear so we can correctly identify which girl is where. On offense it does differentiate between players cause it shows the players number next to the name. Or simply add the players # next to the name while on defense etc.
Hoping the developers can fix this or provide some valuable feedback.
Other than that, GameChangerClassic is good although I have not paid for it nor tried the free trial.


Great Statistics App

GameChangerClassic is great for keeping stats, following teams, and messaging. Way better than Team Snap for Baseball/Softball. However a few suggestions.

1) When editing team games/practice the players availability always reverts back to zero. So either the admins have to manually put the availability or each player has to do it again. I’m assuming this is so everyone gets the change. But this makes scheduling changes tedious. Maybe making a button to reset players availability an option when scheduling.

2) Can you add a function? Please add an “event” to the schedule. There are more team functions than just games and practice. This way all team functions are on one calendar.


More complex than iScore

GameChangerClassic is not as user friendly as iScore. I wasn’t able to edit the line up after the game started. If this is an option I could not find it.

I just found it more difficult to find the next options of a play than iScore. In iScore after each play it was ask you “what happened to the runner on 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc.” to remind you to move the runners. I also preferred tapping on a runner and the iScore app asking me what I would like to do with runner rather than me having to drag the icon to the next base. Then I had to take an extra second to make sure I held the icon on Safe or Out. At least with a simple pop up “runner moved to 2nd” the icon would auto move and I wouldn’t have to worry about dragging it.

I also had a hard time bring in/out subs. This was new for me though...It would have been easier when setting the lineup if I could include subs as an option. Just like a paper line up has a separate section for Lineup and Subs.


A Baseball Fan’s Dream Which Can Be Even Better

GameChangerClassic has what every baseball fan wants. Using GameChangerClassic now for two years, I’ve loved every bit of it and have experienced very few problems in putting in stats. With that said, I do wish they could look into adding a two features and fixing something when it comes to editing stats. The two additional feature:
1) Adding Custom Stadium dimensions/shape (length to the wall). Would be easier and much more efficient in the placement of the outfielder.
2) Adding two options for Homerun (Homerun to right-center & left-center)

The fix I think could be easy is that if you miss doing stats for the game, instead of just putting in the score of the game, you could add in a box score inputting the runs in every half inning, hits and errors.


Good app

Nice; where else can you get a radio-like broadcast of your kid’s game!? Wish GameChangerClassic would change the pronoun applied to people, allow the user to select a gender so you don’t hear “they’re 0 for 1 today,” who’s they? Seems a simple thing to add. First-world problems, right? Mispronounces common names as well, and a disconnect warning would be nice—sometimes your hear the background noises but no game, and you can’t tell if it’s lost connection or if the person entering the updates is working on it. Also would be nice to get non/play updates, entries titled, titled “conference at the mound” and “coach-umpire discussion” would help there. But overall very glad to have it despite its minor issues.



I love to watch my grandson play sports, especially baseball. I am disabled and can’t always make it to his games so I watch it on GameChanger. This weekend he had a game so I decided to go for the free trial and if I liked it, I would buy it.

When it first started out, I thought “this is going to be great”. About halfway through the game things started going downhill. I couldn’t see the game at all, the score was behind, the batting was behind and the program crashed!! Since I was in the free trial period I couldn’t get back to the person who usually does the plays for GameChanger. I was so frustrated! I actually had enrolled in your basic plan but immediately cancelled my subscription. I did not want the hassle that I was getting each time I watched a game. I liked the little extras that come with the paid subscription but not well enough to put up with the interruptions while I’m trying to watch a game.

I am a senior citizen and am on a fixed budget. I can’t be spending money on things that don’t work like they are supposed to. Perhaps in the future I may try it again. But for now, I will just have to watch the local guy who does GameChanger at our games when I can’t be there.

Thank you for your time.


Few options for convenience

I’ve been using GameChangerClassic for a number of years and over all the free version does its job. When I did use the full paid app I didn’t dig in enough to use all the bells and whistles. So if these feature are already available disregard. In all honestly overall no complaints! what I would like to see if possible is a couple of convenience features. Can you add a time start feature so that coordinators can keep track of their games. Also, can you add it to the Apple Watch feature to include a quick score and time screen while using it. Think about it, what better way to reference time and score then on the watch screen. Again merely suggestion to make a great app better.


Excellent App

The best tool for softball or baseball coaches who want to evaluate actual performance instead of making decisions based on gut feel. Let the numbers back your decisions, and no one can argue about your lineups and fielding assignments. GameChangerClassic will track every stat you can imagine, limited only by the knowledge of your scorekeeper. You can also live stream your scorekeeping, giving parents and fans an opportunity to keep up with the game when they can't be there. And you can limit access to stats to various groups of people if it becomes a problem for some reason. Absolutely critical to our team, and fun for good old fashioned stat junkies like me.


Game changer crashed

GameChangerClassic crashed in the 5th inning of our game on 4/3/21. I was not able to score the game past that point. I contacted support via e-mail that evening (there is no phone number or chat support). I received a return email and was told they “refreshed” the game. It still did not work. A second return email asked me to “package” the apps data from GameChangerClassic screen. I did that but never heard back. The next evening I was able to follow instructions on GameChangerClassic ’s help screen to delete the game. After that I was able to re-enter the entire game using the hand written book. As you can imagine this was quite frustrating and time consuming. In my past experience GameChangerClassic has been very easy to use but as this latest experience tells me their customer support needs improvement.


Great App but Could Use A Few Enhancements

App works great and love the analytics it keeps. Would like the see the following enhancements to make it an even better experience.

1. Allow the same account to login on multiple devices at once. I’m not suggesting unlimited but sometime like 2 or 3 would be nice (similar to how Netflix works). My wife and son also like to use it to follow friends’ games and we end up kicking each other out the entire time.

2. More filters in team searches would be very handy. Just a few simple ones like age, state, and year would be great. When searching for a team with a common name it would be nice to limit it to only 14u in TX for 2019 year so that I don’t have to scroll through a bunch of stuff like a lot of 10u teams in FL for the last 8 years.


Very slow right now

Have been using for over 4 years now. Really enjoy GameChangerClassic , but last few updates have really made it slow when entering in lineups at the beginning of a game. Long lag between each click. I counted as long as 7 seconds between each click to be able to make another selection or adjustment. Also, now when entering other team lineup, there is an addition click you have to make when just entering their numbers. Slows things down. Overall, great app, just slow until you get things going. No issues once you actually score the game. Please fix the set up so it doesn’t lag. Thanks


+\- Thougts

The response time seems extremely long. I know much may be due to operator delay. Consider some movable icon to entertain the users while giving them a sense the person proving updates is still engaged.

My wife just transition her older iPhone to my iPhone 6. I now have an iPhone 11. We were watching a baseball game while separately monitoring our twin grandsons play in a baseball game many miles away. Both of our phones have the free version of Game Changer (GC). During games I get to see the action of balls being hit. The ball’s path shows on my screen. That was the same way GC acted when it was my phone. Why doesn’t it show path of balls now?


Love the radio feature!

I love, Love, LOVE the new radio feature!!!! I have five great-nephews spread over the country whose teams are in GC. Not only can I “watch” their games, but now with the radio feature, I can multi task (use Apple News or my favorite game app while listening to the game). The only reason I gave it four stars is that it will it will suddenly just stop broadcasting (except for the crowd background noise). I eventually will realize that it has been too long for a normal stoppage in play and will stop-and-start GameChangerClassic only to discover that I missed a number of at bats. I would also recommend an enhancement that the crowd on cheers for the team that the customer is watching. Or at least is louder for that team. ;-)


Why Narrators Should be Added

GameChangerClassic is amazing already to start off. I use it to watch my cousin. I just feel like the creators should add a narrator because the only way that you could see what happened in a play without starting the trial is that you will end up paying often without even watching some games. My point is that the creators should add a narrator that is free so you don’t have to possibly pay to see plays of a game when you aren’t even watching it. Plus it would be easier in a way that you don’t have to look at your phone to see what happened every five seconds. I just believe that a narrator would be easier for everyone that watches a GameChanger game.


A must have application for youth baseball.

I’ve been using Game Changer for the past 6 years from my little league, travel ball, and for my high schooler. This is a great app... easy to score, track stats, automated sports articles for the team, and a fan favorite for family and friends to tune into the game when they can’t be there in person. Tracking is now closer to real time, and this year they have automated sports announcing. I gave GameChangerClassic 4 stars because I am hoping they take GameChangerClassic to the next level with integrated video broadcasting (I’m the dad with the GoPro mounted in the backstop filming the games), and artificial intelligence for automated scoring 😃.

GC freezes 80% of the time! 🤯🤯🤯

Angela Slevinsky   3 years ago

new iPad for scoring high school BB game. Every time I choose BALL IN PLAY, and selecting what the play was, a window appears asking if I want ADVANCED FIELDING. Whether I choose YES or NO THANKS, the screen freezes and will not un-freeze until I exit the app. I was unable to score the game.
