1:25 /

To the delight of baseball fans around the world, the 2011 Major League Baseball season opens this weekend. If you can't get out to the ballpark to watch your favorite team, you can still stay in the game with different mobile apps for phones and tablets. CNET.com's Kara Tsuboi reports.

-Whether you're rooting for the Rockies, following the Phillies, or cheering on the Cubs, you'll never have to miss one of Major League Baseball's 162 games this season. -There's actually a really big variety of ways that you can use your smartphone to follow or watch or score baseball games this year. -At Bat 11 is MLB's official app and boosts the most comprehensive features. It's also available in all three major phone platforms: Apple, Android, and BlackBerry. -It's called a Live Look-In. And so if there's like a really exciting moment going on in another game that you're not watching, say it's like bottom of the 9th, bases loaded, you can click over and watch it. -The At Bat app also combines your virtual world and your real world. Using this app, you can check in to your team's stadium and then unlock all sorts of specials features unique to that park such as restrooms and concession stands. -If you're more interested in scoring the games, you've got plenty of options too. -If you're gonna score your kid's league game, you can use that or if you're gonna watch a high school game. I mean, it works for any kind of baseball game. -And let's not forget that baseball is a thinking person's sport. Apps like Baseball Prospectus and 2011 Baseball Encyclopedia are two good go-to selections. -The rules or stats. -For complete list of CNET-approved apps, go to cnet.com.
