4INFO Announces Free Major League Baseball Player Alerts

Every Hit, Walk, Strikeout and Home Run Can Be Delivered via Text Alert to Mobile Phones

PALO ALTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 7, 2007 -- 4INFO, Inc., a pioneer in SMS/Text publishing and advertising, announced today the return of its popular text alert service for Major League Baseball scores and player statistics. The service allows baseball fans to get a variety of event-triggered text alerts, including both pitching and offensive stats, sent to their mobile phones. One of 4INFO's most popular services, MLB Player Statistics and Alerts are now going to be available to fans free of charge.

MLB Player Statistics Alerts are just the ticket for dedicated fans who want to be first to know the status of any player and how he's performing on the baseball diamond. Now, baseball devotees and fantasy baseball fans can keep track of every hit, walk, strike out and home run via their cell phone. With 4INFO's service, fans can set a variety of alerts for teams and/or individual players.

"For true baseball fans, watching the game is only half the fun. Knowing exactly how every play affects a player's stats can be more exciting than a final game score, especially to those in fantasy leagues," said Ted Burns, director of product development at 4INFO. "4INFO's event-based alerts deliver the real-time drama of every game directly to the most ardent baseball fans."

    --  Set alerts for roster status, injury, or bereavement
--  For pitchers:
