Baseball is an intricate game played by some of the best athletes in the world. The iPhone is an intricate device with some of the best apps in the world. It’s only natural that eventually the two would come together. But even the most fanatical cubs fan would have a hard time sorting through the thousands of Baseball apps available in the App Store. So we did it for you! Here are the 5 Best Baseball Apps for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Play Ball!
MLB.com At-Bat 2010: This is the widely known, highly recommended baseball app that will allow you to follow the pitch-by-pitch action for any game that is being played for that day. Just want to get some quick scores, this app can also provide those to you as well, as the homepage provides a quick rundown of all the day’s action. Looking to find general stats or who is leading the league in RBI? You guessed it — this baseball app can provide all of those things to you in a nice little package. The only drawback to the MLB.com At-Bat 2010 app is that it can be a little pricey at $14.99, but the sheer amount of information that can be garnered from this particular app makes it far and away the best baseball app you will find in the app store.
iScore: Come on, admit it. One of your most favorite reasons to go to a baseball game is to fill in the box score in the program that you buy. You secretly enjoy when there’s a 6-4-3 double play because that means you get to write numbers and draw circles in two squares concurrently. Now, you can take the ability to score a game home with you, as iScore is an app that allows you to keep official score of the game at home while you watch it on TV or listen to it on the radio. Now, the iPad version will probably be the better option for users who have both the iPhone and the iPad because the iPad’s bigger screen will allow you to see the entire card. Whatever device you choose the app for, you are getting a fun and exciting app that you can use over and over again.
MLB World Series 2010: This is the only playable baseball app that offers you every Major League Ballpark and full team rosters. The app offers two modes: World Series and Regular Series. You also have the option to play defense yourself or have the computer play defense for you. The pitcher/batter interface is unlike any other app that is offered for your Apple mobile device. Even though the $6.99 price tag could possibly turn some people off, don’t let the little bit of extra money deter you from buying this great baseball simulation app.
Fantasy Baseball Cheatsheet ’10: Fantasy baseball can provide some of the most enjoyable moments of the entire baseball season. Scouring stat sheets, reading magazines cover to cover, and setting up your own personal draft board makes watching Sportscenter at night an absolute joy.

This baseball app (available from the app store for 0.99) will allow you to make your own customized draft board, keep track of players already drafted in your draft, and do quick updates on statistics during your draft.
