To thank all the fans who purchased MLB.com At Bat 2010, making it the #1 paid sports app in the Apple iTunes Store, we are going to be offering free access to MLB.TV this weekend (April 24-25) in At Bat on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Several games will be blacked out due to TV rights-holder guidelines and will not be available as part of the Free Weekend special.
Games that are nationally blacked out on Saturday due to the national FOX broadcast are: Indians at A’s, Yankees at Angels, and Mariners at White Sox. The Braves at Mets game on ESPN Sunday night also is blacked out due to the national broadcast. These games are available to international MLB.TV subscribers, but are not part of the free weekend offer.
Standard MLB.TV local market blackouts will apply throughout the weekend.

The first update for MLB.com At Bat for iPad went live in the App Store Saturday, April 10. The release addresses a couple issues with application performance and usability.
- Interface improvements for faster loading, smoother scrolling, and easier to find content on Previews and Recaps
- Faster access to pitch-by-pitch and live Box Score.
- General performance and stability enhancements
Another update, v 1.02 is in development to address the frequent sited issue of the periodic stops of live game updating under low memory conditions.
Once bug fixes are out we will be moving on to v1.1 with new feature updates including league news, expanded scoreboards, additional pitch tracking detail and more. So keep a look out in the App Store for the updates.
