ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

If you're into fantasy baseball and you own a Ford, you're in luck. Avid fantasy baseball fans can get hands-free weekly updates in their Ford vehicle through Ford Sync with Traffic, Directions and Information Services.

Talk about the easiest way to get vital information – Sync spoon-feeds it to you. All you need is a paired Bluetooth-enabled phone and a Sync account to find out who's hot and who's not. Drivers simply connect to Sync Services, say "Sports," then "Baseball" and then "Fantasy Update." The weekly leaders in both the American League and National League are then read out aloud, along with hitting statistics including batting average, home runs, RBIs, stolen bases and runs scored. Pitching statistics include records, saves and strikeouts.

"It's been estimated that nearly 7 million people play fantasy baseball, and all of them scramble to get any kind of information about the very best players they should be putting in their lineups," said David Gersabeck, Sync Services product manager. "This is all about giving our customers what they want. The Fantasy Update feature on Sync gives our customers fantasy baseball updates quickly and concisely using easy voice commands."

Sync Services users simply press the voice button and say the command "Services" to access a wide range of cloud-based on-demand voice-activated features and information (including turn-by-turn navigation, business search, traffic, news coverage, sports reports, weather forecasts, horoscopes and stock prices). Recent additions to the Services network include movie listings and travel information, with a direct connection to 150 airlines, 50 hotel chains and 11 of the largest rental car companies in the US.

Plus, there's no need to access fantasy stats from inside your vehicle. At no additional fees, owners can dial up Sync Services when away from their car to access the voice-command portal, which gives free access to information.

Sync Services is free for the first three years of vehicle ownership.
