Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy

Take your trips to the ballpark to the next level with MLB.com's smartphone app called At Bat 13. At Bat has so many features, I don't even know where to begin! Let's start with using the app to follow your favorite team.

Even if you are watching the game from your couch, this app will keep you more informed on what's going on at the ballpark and every other ballpark across the US. You can follow all the games and scores, search stats to see if your favorite players are among the league leaders, stay up to date with team standings, and even listen to audio commentary on the game/watch it- LIVE! So if you have to get up from the couch to run errands - have no fear. You can take the game with you on your Android or iOS smartphone!

A settings tab in the app allows you to select your favorite team, set alerts for game events, refresh your scoreboard, and even buy gear from MLB shop at MLB.com. Be a super fan with the Social Media Clubhouse which connects you to the MLB or your favorite team's Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, Google Plus, and even some player's Instagram's. You can connect to your team in a way you never have before, all from your smartphone!

This app even gives you access to its sister app - MLB At The Park!

This was my favorite feature of the app. I used MLB.com At Bat on a recent trip to the Nationals Stadium in Washington, DC and I left with a better understanding of the park and a side of Natitude! With At The Park, you can check the schedule, purchase tickets, get directions to the park, see what promotions are running during the game, watch videos (the famous Nationals Presidents Race!), and even see your favorite players' walk-up music! But that's not all - I saved the best for last.

This app has a Ballpark Directory that helps you locate your seat, restrooms, food, drinks, clubhouses, security, guest services, ATMs, Ticket Kiosks, shopping, and any specialty areas your ballpark may offer. At Bat really helps you enjoy your day at the ballpark even more!

Pros

  • Ballpark Directory locates everything you need
  • Streaming capabilities for LIVE games
  • Settings tab to see all your favorite players and their stats
  • Ability to do this all from your seat! - whether at the park or at home
  • MLB At The Park feature

Cons

  • Freemium app means that there are some good free features, but the coolest parts (like streaming games) cost money.

Final Verdict

This app really knocked it out of the park for me and my friends. We were able to see all the food options and restaurants by name around the entire stadium, and even if you had to make a food run, you wouldn’t miss any of the game with this app by your side! Overall this app is a homerun!
