9 Innings: Pro Baseball has long been one of the best baseball simulators in the app store. It doesn’t quite take the game to a point of lifelike realism, but it does allow you to play a real season of baseball using actual baseball strategy. It is fairly easy to pick up and not so easy to put down… the perfect combination for good baseball fun.
Just in time for this years all star break, Com2uS is releasing 9 Innings: Pro Baseball 2011. The difference this year is that the game has a the MLB players license, meaning that every player in the game is actually a player in the MLB. The game uses actual players stats and data to derive the player ratings, giving the teams as close to a lifelike balance as possible.
If you’re looking for a baseball sim that retains some cartoony flair, pick up 9 Innings: Pro Baseball 2011 when it launches tomorrow.
Opening day is just a couple of days away. In honor of that, I thought we would dedicate this Favorite 4 to apps for the baseball fan. In addition, there’s another important event happening on Saturday. So each of the baseball app we chose also have available now, or will soon have, an iPad version. Batter up!
MLB At Bat 2010
If there’s one app that the true baseball fan has to have, it’s MLB At Bat. This every thing for the baseball fan app not only includes all of the stats that you could ever want, but also includes live scores, live game streaming audio and video, and pitch by pitch display and much more. And if you are lucky enough to be getting an iPad this weekend, there’s a version for the iPad that looks even better than the iPhone version.

Back at E3 I met up with Don Lim from Com2uS, who showed me a few of his upcoming games, one of which being Baseball Sluggers. At first glance, the game looked pretty fun, but certainly nothing groundbreaking. It looked like MLB Slugfest for the iPhone, except without an MLB license and limited only to the home run derby. Being the skeptical gamer that I am, I picked up the game with low expectations, thinking that the game would probably be average at best. But boy, was I wrong.
Instead of showing me all the different menu options and gameplay modes, Don had me just straight into the matchup mode, which is unlike anything else I had ever played on the iPhone. Within a minute of booting up the game, I was engaged in a matchup with one of the beta testers of the game in Korea. The game was easy enough to pick up instantly, but with a variety of pitches and speeds, had enough depth to satisfy my inner gamer. Surprisingly I ended up beating the beta tester, shocking Don… and myself. What can I say guys, I’m just good at sports games.

From the makers of... baseball, comes the best non game app that I have on my iPhone. Not only can I keep track of every game with pitch-by-pitch coverage, but I can also listen to my favorite radio broadcast, streaming from any teams broadcasting team that I want it from. Stomaching the Astros losing night after night has never been sweeter.
