STATS Inc is Founded

The acronym STATS stands for Sports Team Analysis & Tracking System. The Oakland A’s (not for the last time in their history would be ahead of the curve) became STATS first customer. They signed a $75,000 deal before STATS had a computer programme.

The final system, built for the Apple II including; hardware, software, modem, and all – was called Edge 1.000 and the A’s loved it.
