It's been a great year for baseball. Heavily contested division races where many went to the final week. The San Francisco Giants and the Oakland A's both won their divisions. And it's the only sport without union issues (for now).

The MLB At Bat app is the only way to listen to live games on your mobile device. And it has now gone free for the postseason. An essential, for the baseball fan.

Commemorate Baseball History With the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum App for iPad

Posted by Carter Dotson on July 9th, 2012
iPad App - Designed for iPad only

The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum has released an iPad app that gives baseball fans the world over a chance to explore the history of the various baseball leagues that allowed African-American baseball players to showcase their skills before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in 1947. The app showcases the famous players of the leagues, such as Josh Gibson, Cool Papa Bell, and Satchel Paige, along with a timeline of the events that defined the Negro leagues, and eventually allowed the game to be as diverse as it is today (although fewer and fewer African-Americans are playing in MLB).

The app has been updated and put on sale in honor of the 2012 MLB All-Star Game being in Kansas City, which is also the home of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. This app is a reminder of the time before sports and society became far more racially tolerant and integrated, and when these leagues served as a way for talented athletes of color to remain involved in the game despite being locked out by prejudice. The app is on sale for $1.99, and proceeds go directly toward the museum.

Prepare for High Heat with Homerun Battle 2's Hellish New Update

Posted by Carter Dotson on April 9th, 2012

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: A GRAND SLAM :: Read Review »

Chicks dig the long ball, and Homerun Battle 2 is full of them. It's also about to get rather hellish, as there's a new stadium called Hell Ground is now available. Hit some high heat, literally! Swing a hot bat! Other fire-related baseball puns! The stadium is available for 2500 goldballs in the game, half off its usual price for launch.

Of course, would it be baseball in the underworld without having Ol' Scratch himself to play as? No, it would not. Thankfully, the Devil costume is unlockable, bringing with him a massive power boost. Mash taters as Mephistopheles! While getting the power of the Devil won't come at the cost of one's immortal soul, it will cost 6800 stars. I'm curious: is it against the rules to use performance-enhancing drugs as the Devil in Hell Ground? As well, four new Guardian costumes are available: White Tiger, HyanMu, Phoenix, and Blue Dragon.

Want to get in on this hot baseball action? Well, the game's on sale for $0.99 in celebration of baseball's Opening Day.

Favorite Four: Play Ball on the 2012 Baseball Season

Posted by Carter Dotson on April 6th, 2012

After a long winter, especially for Texas Rangers fans (though Texas weather can rarely be described as wintry), the new baseball season is finally here! Well, technically it started a week or so ago in Japan, and then there were still spring training and exhibition games, but finally, real baseball is here, and all 30 teams are going at it, trying to win the World Series. As a fan, there are several must-have apps to keep up with all the action, even if sometimes baseball can hardly be described as "action-packed."

MLB At Bat 2012: While this official MLB app does provide live scores, news, and video highlights, same as past years, the fun of it is still in its subscription content. $14.99 unlocks live audio, box scores, and video highlights. However, the app just got sweeter for MLB.TV Premium subscribers. By logging in to the service that offers live game broadcasts from anywhere (and supports AirPlay, though the Apple TV also has the MLB.TV app built in), now the mobile At Bat service comes free, thanks to the app moving to a freemium model. As a bonus, it's now universal, instead of the iPhone/iPad split in past years.

Baseball Trade Rumors: This app for the website coveirng all the latest transactions in Major League Baseball takes the old New York Times slogan "all the news that's fit to print" and reshapes it into "print all the news!" The site reports on news regarding relatively unknown minor league players and free agents. The site is also picking up on their original reporting, as they broke a story on Joey Votto of the Cincinatti Reds negotiating a huge value long-term extension. The app itself provides news filters and push notifications to get the latest news on favorite teams and players as they happen.

Fangraphs: This app provides live scores in a different way. It offers play-by-play win expectancy calculations, showing that based on past game results, which team is most likely to win given the current situation. It also provides the information in an easy-to-view graph, which provides an interesting visual way ot follow the story of a game, and its ups and downs, to see where victory was clinched, or an amazing comeback happened. As well, each player's WPA (win probability added, which can go negative) is displayed, showing that based on expected outcomes, how much their performance in the game actually impacted the final result. As well, the database of players and advanced stats is easily serachable from within the app.

ESPN Fantasy Baseball 2012: Of course, a big part of the fun of baseball season starting up is that it's also fantasy baseball season. While the game requires more commitment then the ever-popular fantasy football due to the about ten times the amount of games in a baseball season, it's easier to check up on a team thanks to smartphones. This app in particular makes it easy to update ESPN fantasy league teams' rosters, check matchups, and catch up on the latest ESPN headlines and tweets from their army of analysts.

Baseball Bullpen Updated with Multiple Pitcher Support and More

Posted by Brad Hilderbrand on March 21st, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

As baseball season begins to ramp up it's critical for coaches to keep a close eye on their pitchers. Practice sessions need to be tightly controlled in order to prevent overuse injuries and make the most of the allotted time, and it can be hard to keep things straight with so many guys in the rotation. Thankfully, Baseball Bullpen has received a new update that will make life a bit easier on coaches.

The newest version of the app supports stats for up to five pitchers, making it as simple as a swipe to jump from one to the next. It also now includes support for various types of pitches, letting coaches keep tabs on fastballs, curveballs, sliders and more. This is all in addition to the app's original features, which included a pitch count, location tracking, and the ability to estimate pitch speeds based on the pitcher's height and his distance from the plate. It's truly a coach's dream come true.

The app is also handy for enthusiasts or even scouts, as they can easily keep tabs on a pitcher's tendencies and location with the app. There's likely to be no more convenient way to keep careful track of one of the game's most important positions.
