Getting Starting with Gametime Announcer​

Edit the Settings

  1. Go to the settings page by clicking the settings icon at the bottom right​
  2. Select whether your team is the home or away team by pressing the "Team" button
  3. Increase or decrease the number of batters in your lineup
  4. Chose whether your team can have a designated hitter, extra hitter and extra outfielder.
Note: for young teams which play all players in the field regardless of number of players, consider not designating positions of players

Edit Team information:

From the main screen, click the "Edit" button on the left side of the screen.

  • Click "Edit Team" button
  • Enter the requested information in PHONETIC spellings
  • Ballpark - enter the name of the field or park where the game is being played. This is used for "Welcome to <ballpark> and today's game featuring..."
  • Team name & Mascot fields. High school teams have mascots like "Greenville Bears" so you would enter "Greenville" for Team name and "Bears" as the mascot. Many travel teams, like "St Louis Recruits", don't really have a mascot so put all of it in Team name and leave the mascot blank.
  • This is the scoreboard display for this team. Keep names to 9 characters or less.
  • Press the "Check Pronunciations" button to verify pronunciations and change phonetics accordingly.
  • This is also where you can store and load a team for recall (including player info).

Add Players to your team:

From the main screen, lick the "Edit" button on the left side of the screen

  • Click "Add Player" at the bottom of the screen
  • Enter player information:
    • First name, last name and Jersey #
    • Extra information like senior, or home town or school
  • Click the button "Check Pronunciation"
    • If the pronunciation of the first or last name is incorrect then attempt to phonetically spell the name in the provided boxes. This is all trial and error. For instance:
      • Wyatt – WhyIt
      • Zach – Zak
    • If the extra information doesn't pronounce correctly, replace the words with phonetic spelling
  • Repeat for each player of your team
  • To assign batting order:
    • Drag each blue number and drop on the appropriate batter
    • Click the number next to any player's name to remove him from the lineup
  • Assign the green position buttons to each player in the field.
Note: for young teams which play all players in the field regardless of number of players, consider not designating positions of players

Edit the Opponent's Team (if running Travel Team mode)

In Travel Team mode, press the "Edit" button and then press "Edit Game" to enter the information about the opposing team. These fields are identical to the "Edit Team" info.

Remember: all of these spellings are phonetic spellings EXCEPT for the Scoreboard Display Name.

Edit the Opponent's Team (if running Ballpark or Wiffle Ball mode)

If announcing both teams, enter the other team info. You can toggle between the home and away team by pressing Home / Away heading in the top left of the screen. Once you have the Away team selected, click the Edit button and repeat the steps above for editing the Team info and adding players.
