Baseball season is almost upon us, and fans can start getting ready now with today’s top Fresh App, MLB At Bat 11. It pipes all kinds of streaming video, live broadcasts and stats and schedules straight to your device. Read all about it, and a few other apps, on our list below.

MLB At Bat 11 (iPhone, iPad) $14.99

At Bat is the ultimate resource for baseball fans as Spring Training draws gets underway. Fire it up, choose your team, and the app pipes in all kinds of information, including stats and schedules. You can also listen to Spring Training games and watch video through the app, all the way through the regular season and the playoffs.

Subscribers to MLB.TV can live-stream video of games with the app, watch videos from a searchable archive library, and keep up on breaking MLB news and rosters as well. This is all baseball fans will want, in one place and packed with video and audio to enjoy — it’s like having a season pass on your iOS device.

WiFi2HiFi (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Stream music from your iOS device to your stereo system with WiFi2HiFi. It works together with a desktop app of the same name to act as an audio receiver for your system, piping whatever is playing on your computer to your speakers by plugging your iOS device into them.

WiFi2HiFi works with multitasking and allows you to use apps like Remote while you’re still listening to music. The app is also optimized to work with your Wi-Fi network even with a low signal to keep the sound quality high.

World Atlas (iPhone) $0.99

World Atlas, as you might imagine, is an app packed full of maps from all over the world: political, physical, time zone and satellite. You can see maps of cities up close or zoom back and see whole countries or larger parts of the globe, and adjust distances to get whatever information it is for which you’re looking.

When you open the app, you can choose what sort of map you’re looking for, and World Atlas uses the iPhone’s standard controls — like pinching to zoom — and allows you to search through different areas. It’s basically exactly what you’d expect to get out of any other atlas, but it’s contained completely in your iPhone.
