MLB At Bat 2009 was excellent. MLB has really been at the forefront of App development on the iPhone and continuously pushed updates throughout the season last year. I suspect 2010 will be no different. I have already purchased the App and have been enjoying listening to spring training games. It is a modern incarnation of the transister radio. Instead of hiding under the covers listening to a game at night as a kid, I'm now listening to a game in the dark as I lay with my 3 year old getting him to sleep.
New this year is the ability to listen to games in the background by utilizing a workaround through safari to stream that audio. this a great addition.
Features to add:
They really need to manage stats better. When you click on a player in the box score view of a game you get their line for the day and some season stats which is great for position players, but when you tap on a pitcher you get their season stats AS A BATTER, who cares, I want to see their season pitching stats.
I don't subscribe to MLB.TV on the computer, so if I want to see a bunch of Giants games I have to plunk down .99 each time. How about a 4.99 (or other price) iPhone subscription feature for a single team as an in app purchase.
So far for spring training games they only have the 'box score' view and 'scoring summary' view for games. I assume they will add back the 'field view' and 'batter view' when the regular season starts. If not, that's a major MLB At Bat fail.
I do wish that the app had been at last year's 9.99, but even at 14.99, the price of one bleacher ticket at a SMALL market stadium, this app is definitely a must have for any baseball fan, and especially any baseball fan that doesn't live in the home market of their favorite team (Giants fan living in Oregon!).

If that March Madness app was $5 I might get it. Seems kind of steep for half a month of use. I'll still be thinking about it.

I had At Bat 2009 and loved it. Just bought the 2010 version and it's fantastic! Can't wait for the video to kick in mid-March. The background audio playback is by-far the best enhancement. That was my biggest compaint last year, until jailbroken. :)
MLB got it right again!

Sweet!!! Only $10 to watch the Cats play ball, on my iPhone, while I am at a conference during the week?
I was close to getting SlingBox for the fix but this will do for now.
Thank you Mr. TIPB for sharing this with me. Where do I send the reward for most friendly person of the day?

Are you kidding .. that March Madness app is a BARGAIN with a capital B!! The same programming on DirecTV is $69!! Granted, it's in HD on DirecTV, but still, $10? Awesome!

I have SlingPlayer Mobile, but I still purchased this for times I just want to see just highlights. A great app and definitely worth it for the price.

Wow. This is VERY cool. Would be awesome to see user stats about this during March Madness. What are office managers going to do - take away employee's iPhones?

You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be really one thing which I feel I would by no means understand. It seems too complex and very wide for me. I am having a look ahead for your next submit, I'll attempt to get the cling of it!
