The Baseball game at AT&T Park witnessed an astonishing view. For the first time in history, the live audience had the opportunity to feel the intensity of the game more deeply with the use of Apple ARKIT on their IPads and iPhones. This sport event was hosted by Major League Baseball.

With the advent of new technology by Apple, it is expected that the future of fandom and experience of watching game is going to become more interesting and engaging. In future, the audience equipped with the ARKIT enabled technology will have better understanding of the game. They will receive the contextual information about the game and will take deeper interest due to the details they’ll be receiving by Apple’s ARKIT.

For this augmented reality experience, the Baseball game was the perfect choice for two particular reasons: No one can deny this fact that Baseball game contains several downtimes, which can make it extremely slow. Second reason is the stats of this game. Numbers have become fundamentally important to the modern games after the explosion of saber metrics and money balls over the last decade.

To further explanation, it is more likely to watch TV broadcast with the information mentioned on the action as it happens in real-time. This all is made possible by Statcast which accumulates all data. Now, you might wonder about this repetitive word ‘Statcast’. Statcast is the in-house analytic tool of MLB.Statcast is a boon for stat nerds which is just a big black box equipped with advanced cameras that covers all the ground and capture the minutest movements of the ground. Statcast has raised the same level of excitement which sabermetrics had developed among the fans, however Statcast has introduced a different dimension of insights to the game. Statcast is perfectly designed to identify the players in the ground, the audience will see a small pop-up on the face of players while watching a game through their iPad or iPhone. By clicking on the pop-up button, one can access to the personalized information of the players.

It is assumed and easily predicted that every app is going to demand the AR feature. Every company will realize the importance and need of augmented reality feature in their mobile app and they will seek this for any reason.

However, there is some challenges which is still demands careful attention and solution. MLB reps has tested the efficacy of the tech in three different location during the games. And each location turned up with some potential problems.

Hopefully, these problems will be sorted by MLB soon and audience will experience a different experience of watching games may be more interesting than the traditional one.
