The use of technology is prevalent in both professional and amateur sports organizations these days. Here, we highlight the top 10 sports APIs on ProgrammableWeb. API capabilities for consideration of the top 10 include activity tracking, fantasy sports, event tickets search and live sports scores.
FantasyData.com, NFL statistical data provider, offers the FantasyData NFL API. The API gives developers access to NFL data (e.g. team stats, live scores, season information, box scores, and more). The API targets web and mobile app owners who develop apps for the fantasy football market. Many of the most popular fantasy football apps have already integrated with FantasyData's APIs.
Check your team, look up player stats and see the league's latest transactions, all from Yahoo's latest API. Fantasy baseball and football are both supported now, with options for hockey and basketball expected in time for their seasons. And the API supports OAuth, so developers could create new interfaces to almost every feature of Yahoo Fantasy Sports.
