MLB.com At Bat 2010 iPhone app diary day 64 Roy Halladay Perfect Game and He's From Colorado

Posted by Drew Zeitlin:


Hello everybody. We want to review what happened in baseball yesterday and how it unfolded to us using MLB.com At Bat 2010 iPhone app. So lets pick up the diary for the MLB.com At Bat 2010 iPhone app once again. Today will be day 64. First there was an afternoon game in the Bronx between the Indians and the Yankees. The Indians trailing 10-4 in the 5th rallied for 7 runs in the 7th and beat the Yankees 13 to 11. Nobody was talking about the game, the conversation was about the ball that Alex Rodriguez hit that hit Indians pitcher David Huff in the head and then landed in right field. Huff was carried off on a stretcher but looks to be all right. We missed listening to the game because we were at the Apple store looking at iPads. When we got a moment we were able to call up all the in game highlights of that game and was able to see that at bat (it looked very bad and was kind of scary) and all that scoring of the game.


Next up we were watching the Nationals and the Padres play on the iPhone. Still can not get over how good the picture is and that we are watching Major League Baseball on a phone. It was a very entertaining game which the Padres won 4-2. Besides good baseball, the announcers Dick Enberg and Tony Gwynn did a great job in calling the game except for one minor thing. They were not watching the out town scoreboard. If they had been they might have seen that Roy Halladay was pitching a perfect game. It was only the 20th time in Major League Baseball history someone has thrown a perfect game. We can not blame them to much we could have checked the out of town scores from the iPhone app as well. We did miss the perfect game, however after finding out we went back and watch the in game highlights including interviews with Roy Halladay (did you know he is from Colorado). What was cool was that we were also able to watch the condensed game. So we saw a perfect game in 8 minutes and 40 seconds. It was like we were at the game.


Next up we head to Anaheim for the game between the Mariners and the Angels. The Angels won this game 5-1 with a walk off grand slam home run in the 10th inning by Kendry Morales. You don't get to see that to often, and we did not see either. To many things going on and to many baseball games going on. When we were checking the news feature we saw the story that Morales had won the game with a grand slam but he also got hurt on that at bat. How can you get hurt on a grand slam home run? We flipped over to the in game highlights and saw what every baseball fan is talking about today. Morales broke his ankle durning the celebration as he jumped on home plate. Talk about going from a high of hitting a grand slam to win a game to the low of probably missing the rest of the season as you step on home plate. Wow!


Our last stop is Detroit. As we were going through the in game highlights of all the games we ran across this great catch by Gabe Gross of the Oakland A's. You gotta see it to believe it. With the MLB.com At Bat 2010 iPhone app we felt we did not miss anything in baseball even though we missed them all at the time they were happening. We are liking this app more and more each day.
