MLB At Bat Got A Huge Update Just In Time For Spring Training

mlbatbatapp

The only time I ever really care about Major League Baseball is during the Spring. And that’s only because I live in Arizona, where half of the league’s teams come for Spring training, and I can go watch tons of all-stars play games for cheap.

Whether you love baseball or not, you can certainly appreciate the amount of work that goes into the MLB At Bat app. It’s got tons of information, video, and photos, and it got a big update just in time for Spring training.

MLB At Bat provides fans with live game radio, television broadcasts, play-by-play service, and more. All that awesomeness doesn’t come cheap though. You can buy a subscription for the high-end TV services of the app, which will cost you $130 per season. Or if you’re fine with just getting radio commentary, you opt for the cheaper, $20 per season subscription.

Some of the features of the update include:

  • Multi-platform live audio access for At Bat 13 subscribers (portable to Mac/PC with a valid MLB.com account)
  • Universal support for At Bat 13 subscribers, accessible on iPhone, iPad and other supported smartphones and tablets
  • Batting, pitching and fielding statistics (iPad)
  • Re-designed individual team pages (iPhone)
  • Updated news section interface (iPhone)
  • Classic games library (iPhone and iPad)
  • Re-architected navigations (iPhone and iPad)
  • Additional push notification options (iPhone)

You can download MLB At Bat for both iPhone and iPad from the App Store for free.

    Big fan of MLB’s online offering! One thing the article doesn’t mention: you can watch your team’s broadcast for all away games, a big plus… I have had more luck with the Apple TV app than the PS3 app (less buffering/lag)

    Until I can stream live baseball to my iOS device, I’m not interested.

    The iPad app is great. I go the Gameday Audio option. I would love MLB TV but it is just not affordable for a season. I would use it on my iPad and Apple TV. I still would not get to see my Nationals as much as I would like because of blackouts.
