The NLBM app, which honors league history and players, is now available for download in the iTunes App Store.
The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) and RareWire, LLC, a leading app development services and software company, announced a new iPad app for the Museum, designed to showcase the rich history of the Negro Leagues.
“RareWire’s expertise and software platform was invaluable to us, in designing and developing our app to bring the legacy of the Negro Leagues to life for mobile users,” said Bob Kendrick, president of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. “We genuinely appreciate RareWire’s generosity in helping us to add another critical dimension to sharing the league’s history and reaching more baseball fans.”
A must-see attraction for visitors to Kansas City for Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game festivities (July 6-10), the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) can leverage its iPad app to share its legacy with an even broader audience. NLBM will also receive a portion of the proceeds from purchases of the app in the iTunes App Store.
“With our headquarters in Kansas City, the birthplace of the Negro Leagues, and being big fans of baseball ourselves, we’re very excited to have the opportunity to work with NLBM to deliver an app that we think is a must-have for any baseball fan,” said Kirk Hasenzahl, president and co-founder of RareWire.
