Of course this is still our top pick when it comes to baseball apps. At Bat 2013 is the best baseball app there is - hands down. Yes, it will run you $20 but it's well worth it if your a big fan.

It's opening day - Get your BlackBerry ready baseball season!


xdoublejx, your not missing anything, Sprint doesn't support BB users. but MLB did not make an "official" app for legacy BB's.

Lets Go METS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thanks jon, think they will? or aything i co do? or just wait for a bb10 phone...which i will get of course, but want to listen to my TIGERS now!!!!

Has anyone downloaded and tried using MLB At Bat for BlackBerry 10? The app runs and I can watch video highlights, but game day audio doesn't work.

I have the same problem all features work except the audio... but last night the audio worked for one game, it was the game that just happened to be the one free game that you can watch!

Sorry for trying to deter people from paying 20 bucks for MLB at Bat, but if you sideload the andriod app, it works just perfectly fine. Go Nats!

go yankees!!!!!!.i emailed espn about making an app for their fantasy league and they pretty much blew me off and mentioning Ios and android in the same sentence.and then tells me to check my mobile devices application store for further updates,what kind of bs is that?

I have Score and ESPN alerts set up. Both work very well, especially Score since it sometimes sends you the alert on a HR before the batter even crosses the plate.

For all of you huge baseball fans, here's a few interesting fun facts:

1) Baseball is the only sport where the defense actually has the ball.

2) Baseball is the only sport where the scoring is done by the player as opposed to the actual ball itself.

3) Baseball is the only sport where the manager (also the only sport with a manager as opposed to a coach) wears the same uniform as the players.

Lets Go Mets!!

It is pretty disappointing for BB7 users.

- The MLB At Bat app that worked perfectly fine last year seems like it won't be offered. I'd be pretty happy just to have that same functionality again. Even though it was inferior to what other platforms had, it was a great way to track games pitch-by-pitch or listen to radio feeds

- The MLB mobile website seems to have been changed and doesn't work as well with my phone as it did last year

- Even the stone-age "MLB Mobile Launchers" mentioned above for some reason show up as "not available" for my Bold 9900, even though I had one of them last year on the same phone

My Bold is a great phone, only about a year old, but it is not being supported.

Very dissapointing - Blackberry loves sticking it to the people that stuck buy them when they had an average produc.. I have a 10 month old Torch 9850 and all I want is the same thing I had last year - to listen to games while traveling. I could sort of understand if this was free app but there is real money to be made at $20 a shot. Blackberry's history of not supporting units that aren't the most current always gets me and is going to make me think twice when I am going to upgrade in 4 months. One thing I have to say about Apple is that almost everything is backwards compatiable.

If you don't think Blackberry has any influence over what apps get developed for its platform you are clueless. Haven't you seen any of the articles about Blackberry courting and funding apps developers for Blackberry 10? Check out the WSJ article from Sept 26, 2012. The facts are that Blackberry has historically not done a good job of support older devices during a transition. OS6 to 7 and OS 7 to BB10.
Also if you are MLB which device are you going to be more interested in having an app for - BB10 where their currenly only a couple hunderd thousand users in your target market versus OS7 which will easily be in the millions.
