The NPB announced today that the stat tracking system BIS will once again begin transmitting stats on the 28th. Stats were not officially transmitted during the exhibition game season because of system issues.
According to the NPB, up until last year, stat information was transmitted per plate appearance, but due to still unresolved technical issues, updates will take place after every half inning.
The stats provided by BIS are used by various news agency. The data is also used by various mobile sites and games.
