We’re about a month into the baseball season, and things are getting weird. The Baltimore Orioles, predicted by consensus to finish last in the AL East, sit on top. The Red Sox, one of baseball’s powerhouses, sit in last place. Josh Hamilton and Matt Kemp are hitting at torrid paces. If you don’t follow baseball you probably don’t know what I’m talking about. But if you do, perhaps you just got a little excited thinking about it. The 2012 baseball season promises to be an exciting one, and if the first month is any indication we’re in for a treat this year. What better way to follow the season, then, than with ScoreMobile for your BlackBerry device? ScoreMobile is one of the most downloaded BlackBerry sports apps, and for good reason. For starters, it’s free. And for that wonderful price of zero dollars you get so many features. It covers not only baseball, but all major sports, including the NBA and NHL, both in the middle of playoff runs, the NFL and CFL, soccer, golf, auto racing, tennis, cricket, MMA, and college sports. No matter what your sports obsession, there are live scores, stats, betting odds, and stories. It even has BBM 6 integration, allowing you to talk about the game right from the app. That might seem overwhelming, but the ability to customize the app to favor your favorite teams makes it much easier. The only thing the app is missing, really, is access to the many quality blogs that ScoreMobile produces. Which reminds me: any baseball fans out there, especially those in Canada, would do well to follow TheScore’s Getting Blanked, run by buddy of mine Dustin Parkes. They cover MLB news from all angles. You can get ScoreMobile for free from App World. Of course, MLB has its own app. It has one huge advantage over ScoreMobile, in that it provides live in-game updates. MLB’s Gameday interface is used on the app, so you can see the game unfold pitch-by-pitch (including pitch speed and location). It even has video highlights, and they update as the game is in progress. A few hours after each game’s conclusion there is also a condensed game, which is basically a 10-minute full-form highlight reel. And yes, it has news, standings, and all other basic features you’d expect from an official MLB app. (The app also includes radio broadcasts of every game, so you can follow that way, too.) The one thing MLB At Bat doesn’t have for BlackBerry is live game viewing. On Android and iPhone, At Bat features live games for users who have MLB.tv subscriptions. We can only hope that this feature will come to BlackBerry 10 next year. But for now At Bat remains a useful, but not revolutionary, app. You can get MLB At Bat in App World for $14.99.
