It's here it's here! Today is opening day for the Major League Baseball season and fans everywhere are getting ready for a great season (hopefully). The team shirts are washed and the gloves are ready as we get set for another great year of baseball. And while you may be geared up, is your BlackBerry ready to go along for the ride? Keep reading to make sure you have all the best baseball apps to carry you through the season.
Baseball Apps and Media for your BlackBerry Smartphone
MLB.com At Bat 2012
The go-to app for baseball fans, MLB.com At Bat 2012 was a bit late out of the gate. While only the hardcore fans may opt for the purchase (it rings in at $14.99 again) it gives you the best experience there is with full news, scores, standings alerts and more. This is my pick for the must have baseball app this year (and pretty much every other year).
ScoreMobile for BlackBerry
Want to keep up with scores and standings for your team but don't need much else? ScoreMobile for BlackBerry may be the best bet for you. This totally free app gives you the latest daily scores from aross the league as well as standings and boxscores.

Just click the icon and your browser will bring you to the latest scores, standings, news and more. This simple approach will keep you informed without taking up a lot of space on your device.
