Can the Houston Astros repeat? Will the New York Yankees outfield set a single season home-run record? Will Barry Bonds be elected to the Hall of Fame this year? With the best baseball apps, you can keep up with the latest MLB news for the 2018 season, watch and listen to live games, join a fantasy baseball league, and even play a ballgame on your phone against cyborgs and robots.
For example, with MLB's At Bat app for iPhone and Android, you can catch radio and TV broadcasts of all major league baseball games from spring training to the World Series, check schedules, and follow team and player news. You can also grab apps from ESPN or The Athletic if you're mainly interested in team and player news.
If you are attending a game, check out the MLB Ballpark app, which lets you manage your digital tickets and track the games you've attended.
Or if you want to try your hand at managing, join a fantasy baseball league, where you can draft and trade players, set your lineup, and compete other other fantasy baseball owners.
From tuning into a game to taking the field with robots, there's an app for every baseball fan.
After you use MLB's At Bat, you'll wonder why other sports apps aren't as good. The well-designed app is simple to navigate, does a great job of displaying MLB scores and stats on a small screen, shows the latest MLB news, lets you listen to or watch home and away live games, and doesn't bother you with alerts. It's the essential app for the baseball fan, from spring training to the playoffs and World Series.
A perfect digital companion to seeing baseball games in person, MLB Ballpark can manage your digital tickets, highlight perks once you're in the park, and track games you've attended at different ballparks.
Designed to give you a quick look at your current matchup and roster, player news, and analysis, the CBS Sports Fantasy app is chockablock full of drafting and roster advice. You can set your lineup, add and drop players, and propose and accept trades, all from within the app.
Yahoo's fantasy baseball app lets you start up or join a league, draft players, and manage your team. While fantasy baseball leagues usually require daily roster adjustments, Yahoo has a league option that lets you set your lineup once a week.
Offering in-depth, longform writing, the Athletic covers sporting news in two dozen cities and regions across the U.S. and Canada for about $48 a year. The writing is thoughtful and timely, and if you are fortunate enough to live in one of the areas the Athletic covers, your sporting life will be better with a subscription.
It calls itself the "Sports Leader" for a reason. ESPN broadcasts Sunday Night Baseball April through September (with some Monday and Wednesday night games), and all the games are watchable via ESPN's app, as long as you have a subscription to an authorized TV provider. You can also organize and join a baseball fantasy league and read top-flight baseball writers (although the list of baseball writers and reporters who have left is growing long).
As the app's name leads you to believe, in this game you tap your screen to take your bats against other players. You can play as your favorite team and add your favorite players, but you don't have to worry about fielding or pitching -- just step to the plate and take your hacks.
