MLB.com
NEW YORK -- MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, unveiled its first major update to MLB.com At Bat, the dynamic application developed exclusively for iPhone™ and iPod® touch and available in the Apple App Store. The highlight of the free upgrade is the addition of MLB.com Gameday, a detailed pitch-by-pitch presentation that is a premiere destination for fans to follow live baseball games.

Accessible from the MLB.com At Bat homepage, Gameday features five screens for fans to interact with during each of the three game modes: preview, in-game and post-game. They are as follows:

• Gameday - Live graphical representation of the batter-pitcher matchup, including a running play-by-play and identifying data for every pitch thrown (location, pitch type and pitch speed) generated directly from every Major League ballpark.

• Field View - This view provides a graphical look at the live status of the field, including every fielder, the batter and any runners on base. Each player name is clickable through to an individual player card with each player's biographical information, headshot and updated statistics.

• Boxscore - A running boxscore from the selected game also includes clickable player names that deliver individual player cards.

• Summary - A live full play-by-play summary of the selected game also includes a separate review of every scoring play.

• Videos - Real-time, high quality video highlights delivered directly to the device, giving fans the ability to watch historic moments, home runs and key run-scoring and excellent defensive plays just after they happen on the field.

MLB.com At Bat 2008 is available for a one-time fee of $4.99 from Apple's App Store on iPhone™ and iPod® touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/ in the United States, Canada and 19 other countries including Australia, France and the United Kingdom.
