MLB At Bat updated for 2014 season, gets iOS 7 redesign

The snow still stands, gritty and dejected, on the streets of North American cities, but spring lies near, and it beckons… with baseball.

The MLB At Bat app has, in its annual fashion, been updated with new rosters, new designs and new features. Specifically, the iOS app has been retooled with a flatter, iOS 7-optimized aesthetic, but the core functionality improvement comes with video: the app can now deliver video in-line, something iPad users have been looking forward to for years.


While MLB At Bat’s $130/year video subscription blacks out Blue Jays games, it shows the live games, and stats, of most others. For $20/year, or $2.99/month, radio broadcasts of all games, including those in one’s home market, are available for listen.

MLB At Bat for Android hasn’t been as drastically overhauled as its iOS counterpart, but it’s still received a nice upgrade, including the ability to favourite multiple teams, and the option to receive push notifications for every run-scoring play.
