Get Live Baseball on the Pre with MLB Mobile Premium

You can now get live baseball on your Pre, including live audio, video highlights, and an expanded scoreboard. put out a press release announcing Mobile Premium Service for the Palm Pre. Rather than create a native app (or perhaps rather than wait for SDK access from Palm), the league has released a web app you can access at the decidedly retro

For either a once-per-season fee of $14.99 or a monthly charge of $2.99, here's what you'll get:

  • Mobile Gameday Audio - Listen to live audio broadcasts of every Major League Baseball game through the final out of the 2009 World Series. Each game will offer the choice of listening to the home or away broadcasts without any blackout restrictions.
  • Gameday - Follow every pitch of every game with a detailed graphic presentation and live statistics.
  • In-Game Video Highlights - Get real-time, high quality video highlights delivered directly to the smartphone quickly after the play happens on the field.
  • Expanded scoreboard - View live statistical data from every MLB game, including linescores, current runners on base and other game details.

Forum Member leez posted a quick review of the app (along with the above screenshot):

The video looks great [...] and the gameday audio loads quick. The pitch by pitch system is far better than it was on the old Gameday Mobile.

The audio streams are very clear, and sound good when connected to my stereo via the headphone jack! A great way to listen to games out of market!

Why Palm Pre owners are paying $14.99 instead of the iPhone's $9.99 is an open question (one we haven't heard back from the MLB about just yet). Anyhow, the good news here is that Palm Pre owners now have a viable option for following their favorite team(s) and players.  The timing is perfect too with the All-Star break upon us.
