After last year’s shortened season, baseball will look a lot more familiar this year—and you can follow every pitch through the official MLB app.
Best for: Baseball fans hungry for streamable games, stats, standings, and sabermetrics. An MLB.TV All Teams subscription lets you watch every out-of-market game live or on demand on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV. Games are broadcast in 60 fps HD—sharp enough for you to call your own balls and strikes.
What we love: For less than the cost of a bag of peanuts, an MLB Audio subscription gives you access to live radio broadcasts from both home and away announcers as well as a Spanish-language channel. No subscription? You can still catch a free Game of the Day or follow along via live pitch tracking and real-time box scores.
Pro tip: The app can answer your pressing baseball queries on the spot. Just tap the microphone icon in the top right corner and ask anything: Who’s the all-time stolen base king? Who’s starting for the Padres tomorrow? Did the Cubs win today?
Meet the creator: MLB (formerly MLB At Bat) has been an all-star for more than a decade. This year the app’s developer expanded the app’s library of documentaries, classic games, and archived audio.
