GameChanger Sync with MaxPreps

MaxPreps & GameChanger are partnered to share stats for high school baseball and softball. Coaches who score their games on the GameChanger Scorekeeper or Team Manager app can configure their team settings to sync their stats to MaxPreps. There is also a one-time import option to sync your MaxPreps roster and schedule to your GameChanger account, saving coaches time on managing both admin accounts.
