Despite coverage shift, FSD keeps Tigers fans connected with game tracker

If you're not able to leave work early to get home before the first pitch of a 4 p.m. playoff game or if you have to work all the way through the evening's festivities, Fox Sports Detroit has you covered. Game Connect, launched this summer, is a modern twist on a common game tracker. Its biggest improvement is the addition of social media streams near the bottom of the console.
The "Game Talk" feature harnesses relevant hashtags, i.e. "#Tigers," and allows you to tweet from the Game Connect console.
A mobile version of Game Connect is available for iPhone and iPad users and also available for Red Wings coverage. A demo video is available below.
