Major League Baseball is Here, Are You Ready?

"The bases are loaded, the pitchers are on the mounds, and Major League Baseball season has begun! So now it's time to take me - and my iPhone - out to the ballgame!"

I think it's pretty hard to beat the MLB At Bat Universal App for following MLB on your portable device, but the article does offer a couple alternatives in case you are in fantasy leagues. New this year though, also from MLB, is an app for your iPhone called At The Ballpark. This one is cool as it helps you navigate the ballpark you happen to be at, as well as several check in options and rewards.

An Update for MLB At Bat

"MLB.com At Bat, the top-selling, award-winning suite of mobile applications developed by MLB Advanced Media, has issued its Opening Day application updates which include a host of new features, offers and functionalities."

The best part of this update is a month free of access to MLB.TV during April, courtesy of Volvo. Of course there are numerous updates for the iPad as well as the iPhone/iPod Touch versions including subscription access to watch out-of-market games live and in-progress video highlights. It's available now for $14.99 one time fee in iTunes for iPad [affiliate link] and iPhone/iPod Touch [affiliate link]. After all, it is baseball season now.

MLB At Bat 2010 Released

"With spring training beginning this week, Major League Baseball has rolled out today the 2010 version of the popular iPhone app, At Bat 2010."

Last year At Bat 2009 was a great app, but it was priced at $9.99 USD if I remember correctly. MLB At Bat 2010 is available now in iTunes for $14.99 USD. This is causing me to really debate the need for it, even though I did get a lot out of last years version. I don't see a lot of upgrades for $5.00 USD premium over the previous version. Now if this works on the iPad, which I'm assuming it will, then I may have to change my way of thinking. Anyone out there going to spring for this version?

MLB About To Make $1 Million on iPhone App

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 09:00 AM

"Major League Baseball's At Bat iPhone app is a hit -- and a money maker. The league tells us it's sold 130,000 copies of the $10 app so far this year. That translates to about $1.3 million in gross revenue. After Apple's 30% cut, MLB's take is about $910,000 so far -- with five months left in the season. (iPhone and iPod touch owners have also downloaded about 220,000 copies of the free At Bat Lite.)"

The first app I downloaded when I got my iPhone 3G was MLB @Bat. In fact, the whole reason I got the iPhone in the first place was the demo of the app they showed at MacWorld last year. MLB has put together a brilliant app that works well and whose functionality keeps improving, and it's one of my most-used apps. I'm honestly quite surprised the NBA, NHL, and NFL haven't followed suit.

It's $1 million, and it's the biggest money making league in professional sports, but that $1 million was earned because they put out a great product; case closed.

MLB At Bat 2009 Steps to the Plate

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 08:00 AM

"Exclusive pitch type, location, and speed data make At Bat 2009 the fastest, most detailed way to follow baseball on your iPhone and iPod touch. Listen LIVE to every regular season and Postseason game with your choice of home or visiting team announcers and no blackout restrictions. Watch the best plays of the game moments after they happen. The app will detect your connection speed to deliver the optimal quality video."

My iPhone 3G wasn't even home yet on July 11th, and I had already downloaded the MLB At Bat app. It was the app that made me want a 3G more than any other during the demo. Over the course of last season, it evolved quite nicely into a very well rounded app and the pitch by pitch stuff made it one of the best ways to watch a game when you couldn't. Now, they've even added Gameday Audio for all games (home and away audio starting April 6th) so if you're up for listening to your team (or checking in on the team they're chasing) you can do that too. The new version costs $9.99, but an audio subscription alone on MLB.com costs $14.99 so it's a pretty good deal.

And, of course, you can pass on the audio and video and get the free version, but really, what's the point of that, right?
