Need to brush up on your baseball rules knowledge with the World Series kicking off last night? No problem, the new You make the call app for BlackBerry smartphones has you covered. Check out the comments from their press release:

"For the first time ever, coaches, umpires and baseball fans can test their baseball rules knowledge at the ball park or on the go," said David Yorke, co-founder and CEO, Umpires Media Inc. "We're very excited to bring a great mobile entertainment experience to BlackBerry® smartphone users so they can learn more about the rules of a sport they know and love."

You Make The Call features a series of video challenges with three possible answers that users have 10 seconds to answer. Answers and explanations are provided and the key elements of play are reviewed. Players can win points for correct answers, see where they stand against other competitors and challenge a friend to match or better their score.

Having checked it out for the past mins before posting, it's pretty awesome. One thing to note though is that it is a fairly big application. It weighs in at 5.8MB. Still, well worth it for the fun and if you're slack on baseball knowledge it's a must have. Also, BlackBerry Torch 9800 users will have some troubles, it doesn't look to be compatible at this time. If you have issues on other devices be sure to comment, some folks are having issues with getting it to load correctly for them. I had to adjust the permissons to all say allow.

Great, timed perfectly for the start of the NBA season. I hear Speedo's new swimwear line is beginning to arrive on store shelves this week.

So last nights game doesn't count? Works for me.

Can't wait to see what it is like. I love baseball and this is right up my alley.

**Update**
Tried it out and I like it. It is very corny but it can really help someone who wants to learn the rules of baseball.

"Fairly big?" That thing's a monster! You're telling me I can download an app that grants me street level mapping (Google Maps) of pretty much the entire civilized world (with the heavy aid of cloud computing, I know) for about a 1/3 of the size of an app that does baseball rules.

Can't seem to get it to work on the storm 2. It kept freezing on the initial screen and then just says stopping with the keyboard present
