Baseball is a game that is quite popular not just in America but in other countries as well. While some people play this sport for competition, many simply prefer to sit at home and watch it. If you are an ardent baseball fan, you know how hard it is to keep up with the latest scores. Moreover, in your downtime, you tend to miss some of the best things the game has to offer. Thankfully, though, there are some great Android applications that won't let you miss out on the game for even a single minute of your life.
So, if you are a baseball fanatic and are waiting to swipe your finger across the screen of your Android device, the following applications will whet your appetite for now:
9 Innings: 2013 Pro Baseball
This free game lets you have a realistic baseball experience whenever you have some free time to spare. With officially licensed MLB teams, the app is possibly the closest you can get to a baseball field (with your mobile phone of course). With stats of over 1,400 players on different 30 teams, this simulation game lets you play against 16 teams through friendly, league, home run derby and special modes. Overall, this is one of the best baseball games out there for Android.
Baseball Superstars 2013
Designed with cute characters that remind you a little of anime cartoons, this next baseball game lets you actually hold the bat and shoot the ball right out of the park. With HD graphics and point-based reward system, Baseball Superstars 2013 is a free baseball game that can also be played online with your friends.
ESPN Fantasy Baseball
Whenever I'm not writing articles like these, I usually spend my time dreaming about owning a baseball team. Though my dream is yet to be realized, I can still get a whiff of how my dream might look like by playing this next game. ESPN Fantasy Baseball is a fun application that lets you manage your fantasy team right from your smartphone. You can build teams, buy players, handle contracts, and much more. So, the next time you are unsure whether to buy a baseball player or not you can just pull out your phone, check the player's stats and make a quick decision.
Sporting News Pro Baseball
If you are tired of missing out on your favorite games, then this next app will help you calm your "score anxiety." So, instead of chatting up with that shady-looking stranger just to know what the score was, all you have to do is pull out your smartphone, open this application, and curse your team for performing so badly. The application presents news, scores, stats, game recaps and schedules in a neat manner along with the ability to customize the app so as to reflect scores of your favorite team.
6-4-3 Baseball Scorecard
If you are a hardcore baseball fanboy or fangirl, this is THE application to have. 6-4-3 Baseball scorecard gives you a feel of a completely real scorecard as opposed to normal plain score tickers. The way this application comes handy is when you are hosting a baseball game and you want to make it as professional as possible. Once installed, a simple baseball game with your friends becomes a professional competition thanks to this app. 6-4-3 can also be used by baseball coaches for scoring their teams. One of the best features that I personally love is the ability to send play-by-play updates to Twitter.
Official Rules of Baseball
Playing baseball with your friends is quite fun. However, that fun turns into an altercation when one of your friends decides to invent his or her own baseball rules. While those fights usually don't break friendships, they can be quite a disruption in the game. Thankfully, however, you can always use this application anytime you want to refer to any rule of the game.
