I unfortunately happen to be a fan of 2 baseball teams (Yankees and Cubs) that I don’t live anywhere near. For the most part, I’m limited to watching games that appear on ESPN, WGN, TBS or Fox and I can’t hear any of the local radio broadcasts. As you may know, many Cubs games are also played during the day while I am at work. I recently purchased MLB At Bat on the recommendation of one of my friends who lives in Illinois but his office is like a black hole for radio reception. I was quite surprised that it was only $19.99 for the entire season. Granted, it’s not as nice as being able to watch the game but when I’m at work, I really can only listen to the game anyways in the background. You also have the ability to choose which radio feed (home or away). There is also supposedly a mobile app but I’m not sure if you get charged separately for that feature.
So, if you don’t want to spend the money for an MLB package through your cable or satellite provider and don’t want to also pay the $89.95/$109.95 yearly or $19.95/$89.95 a month, MLB At Bat is definitely a good deal.
