Yardbarker raises another "large" seed round, for sports news site

Yardbarker, an Emeryville, Calif. company that runs a site aggregating content from sports bloggers, has raised another seed round of capital.

Yardbarker lets users rank the sports news they like — which pushes the best news to the top. We first covered the company after its August launch (scroll down).

The company wouldn’t disclose the size of the round, saying only that it was a “large” seed round.

It has since compiled feedback and created a new release of Yardbarker, which is also just out this week.

The investors include Russell Siegelman, who is the lead lead angel investor, and a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers. Other investors include Ron Conway and Steve Anderson from Baseline Ventures; Ronnie Lott and Harris Barton of HRJ Capital; Labrador Ventures; and the Band of Angels, among others.
