MLB.com, the official Web site of Major League Baseball, announced today it will begin streaming full-length live games through its award-winning MLB.com At Bat 2009 application for iPhone and iPod touch today. The unique addition of live baseball games will be a signature offering among the new At Bat 2009 features enabled by the new iPhone OS 3.0 update.
Beginning with today’s Chicago White Sox-Chicago Cubs Interleague Play matchup from Wrigley Field at 2:20 p.m. (EDT), up to two live games per day, subject to blackout restrictions, will be included in MLB.com At Bat 2009. The other game scheduled for June 18 is the Detroit Tigers-St. Louis Cardinals from Busch Stadium at 8:15 p.m. (EDT). Shortly after the launch of live games, it is expected that MLB.com will roll out the entire slate of out-of-market games currently offered through its premier live streaming video product, MLB.TV Premium, as part of MLB.com At Bat 2009.
Now you baseball fans don’t need to miss your game just because SOMEONE in the family wants to go shopping! Bring that iPhone along and watch till you drop!
