Live game streaming in MLB.com At Bat, and other things you might have missed

Last night, At Bat 2009 users who upgraded to Apple’s iPhone OS 3.0 and downloaded the new 1.2 version of the application were able to watch LIVE baseball streamed to the iPhone and iPod touch.

Taking advantage of Apple’s new 3.0 live streaming capability, At Bat 2009 now
offers 1-2 live streaming games per day (Blackout
and other restrictions apply
). The application will detect your available
network connectivity and deliver the highest quality video possible.

Today, fans using At Bat can watch a pair of prominent Interleague Play rivalries with the Chicago White Sox-Chicago Cubs from Wrigley Field at 2:20 p.m. (EDT) and the Detroit Tigers-St. Louis Cardinals from Busch Stadium at 8:15 p.m. (EDT).

We are planning to roll out more games as the season progresses. No updates yet on a timeline.

The launch of the latest version of At Bat 2009 completes a busy month for the MLB.com Mobile Team.

At Bat 2009 was selected as a winner of an Apple
Design Award
in the iPhone Developer Showcase at Apple’s annual
Worldwide Developers Conference on June 9 in San Francisco.

The application was also named Best in Sports Technology at the 2009 SportsBusiness Journal Awards on May 28 in New York.
