MLB goes Pro

MLB took a bite into Apple, revealing a tech collaboration with the brand that will integrate new on-field capabilities through the approved use of iPad Pro and a newly developed advance scouting, analytics and video app dubbed MLB Dugout during games. iPad Pro will be utilized into all 30 Major League dugouts and bullpens with the deal marking “the first-ever on-field integration of next-generation technology, putting advance-scouting video and customizable reports at the fingertips of all managers, coaches and players.” Each iPad Pro has been customized for each club and loaded with the MLB Dugout app, allowing every team’s manager, coaches and players to utilize their own proprietary and strategic statistical reports, data visualizations and advance-scouting videos during every game from dugouts and bullpens.

“Our collaboration with Apple on the use of iPad Pro in dugouts and bullpens is part of our ongoing effort to introduce extraordinary technology into our game,” MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said. “We are pleased that Apple’s groundbreaking products, which have already improved the access that fans have to our sport, will now inform the decisions that make our games interesting and exciting throughout the year.”

“iPad is our vision for the future of personal computing, and we are so excited to be working with Major League Baseball to put this incredible technology into all of their dugouts and bullpens this season,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing. “With iPad Pro and the new MLB Dugout app, managers, coaches and players will have unprecedented access to statistics, data and scouting videos right at the touch of their fingers, and when it matters most, during the game.”
