The app is free to download. However, to take full advantage of the app's features, a subscription is necessary. This is available for $19.99 for the entire season, or $2.99 per month. Both are available as in-app purchases. The 2013 MLB season begins Sunday, March 31 when the Houston Astros visit the Texas Rangers.
