The White Sox home opener right around the corner (and the Cubs have theirs soon after), so it’s time to start downloading the best baseball apps that will help you enjoy the game all summer long.
MLB.com At Bat
$19.99 for premium access, for iOs and Android
*There is also a free LITE version
Before you pass out from the price, let me explain. This is Major League Baseball’s official app, and it’s got a lot of bells and whistles. For $20, you have access virtually every game’s live audio and live video feed (some video feeds of the game may get blocked due to local and major network blackout restrictions.) Follow your favorite team’s pages within the app — there you’ll find video highlights, schedules, statistics and more (Note: You can get the team pages in the app’s lite version.) Also, a bonus for baseball history buffs: Premium access also gives users access to 60 classic games in their entirety
MLB.com At The Ballpark
Free for iOs and Android
If you’re planning on visiting different MLB ballparks this summer, this app can help you out. You can check out a map, get exclusive content and in some parks, you can even order food right from your phone!
99 cents for iPhone
If you’re all about the baseball stats (à la Moneyball), this is the app for you. With this app, you can track your team’s chances of winning as well as the stats of your favorite players with live, full box scores. The app also features an extensive baseball history archive.
99 cents for iOs
Neither the White Sox nor the Chicago Cubs have official mobile apps — what’s the deal with that, Chicago? But CubbieTime is a fun download for Cubs fans (and maybe White Sox fans too). This app serves as an alarm clock as well as a new source for all things Cubs; but, most importantly, it tracks the exact amount of time since October 14, 1908 — the last time the cursed Cubbies won the World Series.
