Orel Hershiser becomes part-owner in sports data and analytics company Inside Edge
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Minneapolis, MN – September 17, 2018 – Inside Edge announced today that it has received an investment commitment from former Major League pitcher and current announcer for the LA Dodgers, Orel Hershiser. The investment marks the first time in its 26-year history that Inside Edge has accepted investment capital from outside sources.
“During the course of my career as a player, coach, and now announcer, I have used the analytics that Inside Edge provides. And now, with the success of “Remarkable” and its obvious ability to make big data easy, the time is right to get behind the company to help accelerate its growth into other sports and markets. I am delighted to be a part of the Inside Edge team.”
“You can’t ask for a better partner than Orel Hershiser,” said Kenny Kendrena, VP Product Development and Sales at Inside Edge. “He has been instrumental in helping us shape our broadcast products and services, and everyone knows what a tremendous person he is. With this investment, we can scale both horizontally and vertically, especially in the gaming market, where we have some exciting things brewing. We are thrilled to have Orel on our team!”
