‘MLB at Bat’ now listed as a supported CarPlay app on Apple’s website

Apple has updated the CarPlay page on its website to reflect the fact that a new app, MLB at Bat, will now be one of the few third-party apps supported by the platform at launch.

Interestingly, the coupling of MLB at Bat with CarPlay was demoed at WWDC, but hadn’t gotten much attention since. When the app launches, it will supposedly let you listen to many different MLB radio stations, streaming them through the iPhone to your car’s speakers.
Originally dubbed “iOS in the Car” at WWDC 2013 and then later officially announced as CarPlay in March of this year, the service is essentially a middleman between your iOS device and your car’s dash interface. It will use the power of the iPhone in harmony with your car’s speakers, and built-in display to bring a variety of common tasks such as access to maps, messages, and phone calls completely hands-free.
MLB at Bat isn’t free, running at $2.99 per month or $19.99 for the entire 2014 season. You’ll be able to use the app with CarPlay when it launches later this year in the cars of certain manufacturers as Ferarri, Honda, Hyundai, and others. Supposedly, you’ll also be able to get CarPlay in a car you already own through system from Alpine and Pioneer.
