All 155,000 regular season box scores (from 1920-2010) are now available in a mobile-friendly format via our recently launched mobile site.
And unlike some other products that require you to own an iPhone, an iPad or download a costly specialized app, our mobile website works on every major mobile web browser for free. iPhone 3, 3GS, 4, Android 1.4 through 2.3, iPad and iPad 2, Blackberry 4, 5, & 6. Every. Last. One.
And when we make a change to the website, you don't have to go through an update process, and we don't have to get Apple, Google, or Blackberry's approval. It's all there for you right away.
You can even add it to your iPhone, Android or Blackberry start screen just like an app. Here's how to do that.
On iPhone, visit the mobile homepage, click '+' or '->' sign on the menu bar at the bottom of the browser and tap "Add to Home Screen." On Android, visit the mobile homepage, bookmark the mobile homepage, open bookmarks, long click the bookmark and "Add shortcut to Home." On BlackBerry, simply click on the link for the Launcher for Version 4.2 and Above or the Launcher for Version 4.0 and 4.1. Our icon is automatically used to create a launcher for our web site. The instructions also appear on the front page of the mobile site.
Give it a try now and next time you are on the couch or at the game and need to know who hit that home run in the last game you attended, you'll know where you can look.
