App: MLB At Bat 2010 for the iPad
Baseball might not be that popular in Europe, but we still want to show you one of the best apps for the new iPad from Apple. It was one of the applications shown by Steve Jobs during the presentation in January, the MLB At Bat 2010 app. Apple and MLB Advanced Media already made a splash last year with the introduction of the iPhone At Bat app, where you were able to follow the games pitch by pitch, listen to live radio and even watch selected games live.
Now they have designed the app in particular for the iPad. You can track location, speed and type of every pitch thrown in a MLB game live. You can check box scores, extensive statistics, player profiles and play by play. Additionally you can listen to home and away radio broadcasts and watch in-game video highlights.
But the app doesn’t stop there. If you’re a subscriber of MLB.tv you can even watch live games through your iPad. This will be especially interesting with the iPad Wi-Fi + 3G model, as you basically will be able to watch baseball games from everywhere, if it is the park, the beach or somewhere else outside. MLB At Bat 2010 will be updated further throughout the season. The developers have announced that they will add access to all the content from MLB.com for example.
- Real-time tracking of pitch by pitch data, including location, velocity and type
- Live box scores and extensive statistics
- Player and team profiles
- Live radio access to home and away broadcasts
- In-game video highlights and condensed games
- Access to MLB.tv and with that to live games, if you’re having a subscription
MLB At Bat 2010 for the iPad doesn’t come cheap. You can buy it in iTunes or the App store for $14.99. If you want to watch live games you need an additional MLB.tv package, which varies between $19,90 and $24,95 monthly, and between $99,95 and $119,95 for the year, although the season prices will go down throughout the summer.
