My heart is a-flutter. Spring is getting closer and baseball is almost back. Later this month we will get our first glimpse of the MLB.com At Bat 2011 iPhone app and if it’s as good as the previous version this will be an app that is indispensable to every baseball fan.
The At Bat 2010 version could access one LIVE game each day of the regular season; those with MLB.TV subscriptions could access a complete schedule of LIVE games (All live games are subject to blackout restrictions, see www.MLB.tv for details) and you were able to watch one free streaming game each day.
AtBat also included Gameday Audio, pitch by pitch, in-game highlights, condensed games and more.
I do believe the 2010 app cost $14.99 and that was a great buy considering you could listen to every game over your phone.
Other features included:
- Breaking news, schedules and interactive rosters and player stats for every team
- Video library searchable by player or team
- Enhanced LIVE game video during the regular season allowing access to scores and stats while you watch
- Home/Away broadcast feed selection during the Regular Season (where available)
- Background audio playback: listen to a game while you use other Apps
As soon as this app comes out I can’t wait to do a full review. Even in the offseason this little app was still being used to keep me up to date on all the offseason trade acquisitions. (or as a Met’s fan, the lack of any acquisitions).
Check out my video review of the condensed games feature. It’s a great feature to have, being able to watch just the highlights of a game in less than 15 mins!
I will be gifting one lucky subscriber to the blog a MLB.com At Bat 2011 iPhone app! But you must leave an interesting comment! :) Let me know what you are looking forward to in the new edition of the app.

Guest Judge: Kerel Cooper, Mets Video blogger and publisher of “On The Black” has offered to help me judge comments. Kerel is a long-time iPhone user who also uses the MLB.com iPhone app extensively. No fooling this judge. He’s looking for someone to surprise him with an unknown feature he’s never heard about.
Guest Judge: Dave Doyle, Publisher of The MetsReport.com has also offered to help judge comments. Dave is an huge Android fan and would be interested in hearing about the about the Android version of the MLB.com At Bat App.
