#FANtasking Initiative by MLBAM Kicks Off Wireless Improvements at Parks

Posted by Jay Floyd, Fri, October 11, 2013 11:30 AM Comments: 1

Thanks to the folks at Qualcomm for the heads up on a big initiative going on throughout all of Major League Baseball.  For everyone that’s ever dealt with weak signals on his or her device at the ballpark, new and improved mobile experiences are coming soon!

With All-Star Brandon Phillips on board, helping to spread the word via social networking, the FANtasking has been rolled out and seems quite fun.  Check out the following details from a press release and find out how you could win tickets.

Baseball is a game steeped in history and tradition. Unfortunately for fans, the “tradition” of nose bleed seats is as old as the game itself. With its new FANtasking video feature, Qualcomm is making the impossible possible: turning the worst seats in the house into the very best.

Granted, hot dog piñatas are likely not going to become all the rage at MLB stadiums, but one thing is clear, the future for fans is brighter than ever thanks to the efforts of Qualcomm and MLB to bring the future for fans into the palms of their hands…or more literally into their mobile devices.
The short video below brings this exciting future to life in some rather “unorthodox” ways that we thought you and your readers would truly appreciate.

Let Hunter Pence Teach Your Kids Baseball — But Not Really

Posted by Pat Gallen, Thu, September 26, 2013 03:23 PM Comments: 4

This faux-instructional video made by Giants outfielder Hunter Pence is a beaut. We got a chance to see his unorthodox style up close and personal as a member of the Phillies. He’s now preaching that to children in this not-really-real baseball academy video.

Even if you’ve soured on Pence, you’ll love this. (From Deadspin and SI’s Extra Mustard)

Pat and Corey deliver year-end report cards to the entire Phillies team – lineup, bench, starting pitchers and bullpen – and give their thoughts on who will be back next season.

Eric Seidman joins the guys and offers an interesting idea to trade one the Phillies best players. He also explains why trading Ryan Howard is not an immediate possibility.

Natalie reports from the Citizens Bank Park parking lots before the final Phillies home game and asks tailgating fans their biggest disappointment of the 2013 season and also what they’re looking forward to most in 2014. The answers are all over the map.

Ryann Williams has the final round of reader questions before she heads off to vie for the title of Miss Pennsylvania this offseason. This week and every week the fan question segment is presented by the good people at BQ Basement Systems, experts at basement waterproofing.

Thanks for watching all season online and on Comcast. We always want to hear your feedback and ideas for the show, so please leave them here.
