This weekend, you can watch plenty of baseball on your iPhone and iPad through the MLB At Bat App. Even though the app is expensive at $14.99, it’s certainly worth it as last week, I was able to see the final moments of the Colorado Rockies no-hitter and did it over AT&T’s overloaded 3G network. The video was actually good quality. And my friends and I were able to see the last outs in real time. Very much worth it. So this weekend, MLB is opening up games on the iPhone for you.
