MLB Gameday Audio
Keeping track of a baseball game can be very tough: games often run long enough that there's a good chance you won't be within range of a TV or radio at least some of the time. And if you are, you would have to be very dedicated to get a TV or satellite radio package that includes out-of-town games. Sprint is counting on enough of us wanting a cure for these occasional frustrations through its new deal with Major League Baseball. For $6 a month beyond your regular plan, you can listen to every MLB game on your phone through the WAP site on mlb.com, regardless of whether the game is local or not. You can even choose whether you listen to the home or away team's coverage. While it's unfortunate that fans are locked into a specific carrier, a baseball fan might consider the cost a worthwhile sacrifice.
