Thursday, September 4, 2008 Releases Updated iPhone Application

When’s ’At Bat’ debuted with the launch of the iTunes App store in June, it featured timely video highlights and scores, but not much else. Finding detailed statistical information about a game sent users out of the application and onto the gadget’s Internet browser. Not anymore. The free upgrade from Major League Baseball Advanced Media incorporates ‘Gameday,’ a statistical nirvana featured on’s website. Want to know who’s batting at Fenway Park [map] at any given moment this afternoon? A few taps of your finger will bring up pitch-by-pitch and play-by-play information. Running box scores, updated averages, scoring summaries and more are now housed within the friendly confines of At Bat. The real-time features worked perfectly last night for the Orioles vs. Red Sox game at Fenway Park. With updates set to pull down every 15 seconds (this setting can be changed via the iPhone or iPod touch’s ’Settings’ menu), the pitch-by-pitch account was never slower than a pitch. Videos also went up with lightening speed.
