If you’re a baseball fan, and seldom find yourself in front of your TV set at game time, Major League Baseball’s MLB.com At Bat 2010 is a must-have application. Available for Android, the iPhone/iPad, or BlackBerry, At Bat provides, “real-time scores, live audio, in-game highlights and more.” You have the ability to set your favorite team(s) — cough, Red Sox, cough — and receive push notifications when new video highlights, box scores, and/or a condensed game summary becomes available. As for live in-game audio, you have your choice of which audio feed you would like to hear, that of the home team or the opposing team. The audio quality is good — great with 3G, okay with 2G — although there is a 2-3 minute lag from the radio feed. Occasionally, we’ll be listening to the audio of a game in the 9th inning and get a push notification of the final score while the audio is still playing. At Bat definitely isn’t the cheapest app you’re going to have on your phone, priced at $14.99 (up from $9.99 last year), but with the addition of push notifications and an improved interface, we think baseball fans will agree it is worth its weight in gold.
