Opening day apps from MLB.com

It’s opening day and Major League Baseball has revamped its MLB.com At Bat 11apps to celebrate.

In truth, the MLB.com apps are a bit pricey at $14.99 for iOS, Android and Blackberry devices. But they offer some neat features such as video clips of key plays, home and away radio broadcasts, and for iPhone and iPad users, the app has a redone Gameday display that helps fans track games pitch-by-pitch.

Business Insider pointed out earlier  that this year, Android devices (minimum 2.2) using Flash get video-streaming capabilities. You can watch games on the following gadgets: Sprint HTC Evo; Verizon’s HTC Droid Incredible, Motorola Droid X, Motorola Droid, Motorola Droid 2, Motorola Droid Pro and HTC Thunderbolt; Samsung Galaxy Tab; HTC Nexus One; and T-Mobile’s Samsung Nexus S and HTC Glacier (myTouch 4G).

For those who don’t always root for the home team, there’s a sweet deal in these apps for you as well. The league is offering a free month of out-of-market streaming game telecasts for its iOS apps. The offer is good for the month of April and is sponsored by Volvo.

If D.C. folks want to see Nationals games, however, they’ll have to watch it on TV or actually head out to the ballpark.
