Pennant

Pennant

The huge history of baseball statistics all brought together in a brilliantly designed app

We have to admit that over in the UK it’s pretty difficult to be a great baseball fan, but Apps have been known to enjoy a game once in a while, and so we were really rather excited to get hold of Pennant, a fantastically designed app that documents over 50 years of baseball history.

The app in wonderfully intuitive, and feels like an interactive infographic that you may see across the internet or in a magazine. The amount of information within the app itself is equally as astounding, with every inning of every game in every season from 1950 being documented.

You can search for your favourite team by flicking through cards alphabetically, by selecting it from a grid, or scrolling around a map. Once you have chosen a team to view, you can flick through the years, choosing the season you want info about. From here, you can view facts about the season as a whole, such as batting average and percentage, or select an individual game.

Choose this option, and you will be presented with a wheel representing the game, with bars showing each statistic. You can also view individual players’ contributions, or scroll through each occurrence specifically, getting a pitch-by-pitch analysis. We can’t stress how great the interface is, and if you’re a baseball fan you’ll absolutely want to give this app a try.

Rated 5 out of 5

A beautifully presented, information-rich app that baseball fans will love.
