It’s Opening Day. And for the obsessive baseball fan, missing a live game at while work can be pure torture.Sure, you can keep refreshing the score, but that’s still not as good a the real thing.
With MLB At Bat, you can stream games straight to your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone with an MLB.tv account.
As a bonus this month, the MLB is offering a free trial subscription to MLB.tv for the entire month of April, just for downloading the app. (You’ll have to put up with some annoying Volvo ads, but it’s still worth it).
We’ve been using MLB At Bat for about a month to keep up with spring training games, and we can safely say it’s one of the best sports apps we’ve seen so far.
It works anywhere, and will stream games over wifi and 3G. We did experience a few hiccups in streaming, even over wifi, but it smooth for the most part.
Besides live streaming, you can keep up with each swing through game day, track player stats, browse team standings, and read news and updates from MLB.com.
Gameday lets you keep up with a game play-by-play. It's a live animated representation of what's happening.
Here's the list of every MLB team. Tap the green plus sign next to your favourites. You can also set push notifications to be alerted about your teams.
Tap the TV icon to select a game you want to stream. Warning: Depending on where you are, some games may be blacked out. Let's try the Yankees game.
Whoops! It looks like we can't watch the Yankees game. Pretty annoying. Let's go back and select the Braves game instead.
