R.B.I. Baseball, known as the most popular Baseball game to ever be released for the Nintendo Entertainment System, has received a reboot via the modern smartphone. The original game licensed players from the MLB, and the same is true for R.B.I. Baseball 14, which features 480 of the current lineup of players. You can play the game, with visuals just slightly better than its predecessor, in a variety of modes including season, postseason, and exhibition.
The game features all 30 MLB teams, and you can play an entire 9-inning game in just 20 minutes. It also features easy-to-use "classic" controls, allowing you to control the game with what is basically just two buttons. The game is also very realistic, featuring players whose appearance and abilities are based on real stats. Finally, there is unlockable in-game content such as legacy jerseys that you can unlock by playing season mode.
You can get R.B.I. Baseball 14 on the App Store for $4.99.

When we first had a look at MLB.com At Bat in 2012, we surmised that it was a good app to have for every baseball fan. Thus, it's great to hear that the 2014 edition has been optimized to work with iOS 7.
The app has been completely redesigned, and the new elements pay homage to Apple's latest major re-tooling of its OS. The re-design also encompasses the ability to deliver inline video playback, and new league-wide scoreboard functionality for single-tap expansion.
As before, the app allows for two subscription options ($19.99/year or $2.99/month), and content is free to MLB.com Premium subscribers.
MLB.com At Bat is available on the App Store

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.
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.
